Build for Today While Architecting for Tomorrow

Burton Group's Catalyst Conference to Solve Real-World Application Architecture Issues

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(CCNMatthews - May 03, 2007) - Burton Group experts, enterprise technologists and IT vendors will convene in San Francisco, June 25-29 at Catalyst Conference North America to demonstrate how a well-planned, coherent, application architecture can coexist with today's time-to-market mindset.

According to Anne Thomas Manes, research director for Burton Group's Application Platform Strategies service, "Preparing an infrastructure that is adaptive to change requires planning, yet planning always gets lost in the pressure-cooker of application delivery."

Through technical, in-depth presentations, Catalyst Conference will provide tools to help IT organizations build for today while architecting for tomorrow. Major issues to be addressed include:

Application systems -- build, buy, rent or steal?

SOA -- is it a dream, or a reality?

The evolving user interface -- can it be too rich, or too thin?

Agenda highlights include real-world case studies that demonstrate how enterprise IT organizations can move forward with modern architectures while delivering results more quickly.

Amazon -- Amazon's Approach to Web-Scale Computing

Well's Fargo -- Financial Service Leader Banks on SOA

MassMutual Financial Group -- Approach to Institutionalizing Web Service Management

Johns Hopkins University -- Applied Physics Laboratory -- SOA and Security: A Pattern-based Approach,
