New Rules for a New Game? Rich Internet Applications & SOA Governance

April 23, 2008: 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT

Composite and Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are gaining significant momentum within the enterprise because of the broad impact they can have on IT, business, and user productivity. But for many, building applications that consume services without governance can be like the "Wild, Wild West" -- resulting in an unstable set of applications and processes.

Join Bob Buffone, chief architect at Nexaweb, and Sameer Vaidya, SOA domain architect, HP SOA Software Center, as they discuss these problems and best practices for building governed, SOA-enabled composite and RIAs.

Composable Applications: User Assembled, Business Managed, IT Designed

May 21, 2008: 2:00 p.m. EDT/ 11:00 a.m. PDT

Today, more than ever, information must be delivered in the right context, at the right time, and in the right format. This means allowing users and analysts to assemble semantically connected components based on the situation, delivering intelligence in real time, and having the option to view the data in different media such as text, maps, or graphs while preserving IT governance, security, performance, and scalability.

Join Steve Hansen, senior solutions architect, to learn how the next generation of composable applications can enable better decision making and situational awareness in the office or in the field.

Application Modernization: Less Risk - Less Time - Less Cost

May 22, 2008: 3:00 p.m. CET / 9:00 a.m. EDT

Legacy client/server applications built with 3GL and 4GL tools still dominate the enterprise today, despite the rising costs of maintenance and updates. Combine that with a shrinking pool of legacy application developers and the demand for new features and functionality, and the total cost of ownership becomes intolerable to both the business line and IT manager.

Join David McFarlane, COO at Nexaweb, and some of Nexaweb's most successful customers, to learn how you can build and deploy web applications that reduce the total cost of ownership, eliminate the need for scarce legacy skills, improve customer service and remove geographical and technical barriers to adoption.

Why Modernize Legacy Applications? Cost vs. Benefit

June 12, 2008: 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT

Maintaining legacy applications is often a lose-lose proposition: The IT department is stuck spending a lot of time on basic maintenance while, at the same time, business units can't derive new value from these outdated tools. The solution is to modernize to an Enterprise Web 2.0 architecture, but the cost of modernizing is perceived as being too high.

Join Stein Sorhaug, solutions engineer at Nexaweb, to hear how enterprises have saved money while transforming their legacy client/server applications to web-enabled solutions -- all while adding new functionality and improving user experience. The meeting will conclude with a Q&A session so bring your questions about transforming your own legacy applications to a Web architecture.

The "Enterprise Web 2.0 for Developers" track includes:

Dojo 1.1 - The Enterprise Effect

April 30, 2008: 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT

The availability of Dojo 1.1 brings with it dramatically improved performance, modularity, stability and functionality. What do these and other improvements mean for organizations using Dojo for enterprise application development, and what are some of the other forthcoming enhancements developers need to know about?

Join Bob Buffone, chief architect at Nexaweb, as he answers these questions and discusses how Nexaweb has used Dojo as the foundation for its AJAX client technology.

Performance-Tuning AJAX Applications

May 29, 2008: 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT

As AJAX matures as a technology, its use in large applications has increased significantly. But large applications require more extensive amounts of code, which leads to the inevitable performance bottlenecks and memory constraints associated with non-trivial application development.

Listen as Ryan Breen, vice president of technology at Gomez, and Bob Buffone, chief architect at Nexaweb, provide detailed information on how to performance-tune large AJAX applications using a variety of available tools and techniques. Drawing on the experience of having developed large AJAX frameworks, this session will look at a variety of performance bottlenecks that can occur within an application.

A New Approach to Java Web Clients

June 17, 2008: 3:00 p.m. CET / 9:00 a.m. EDT

The RIA marketplace has seen its share of technologies -- HTML, Java, Flash and AJAX included. Despite the buzz each has shown its limitations as a robust RIA development technique. But Java UIs are making a comeback, and for good reason, when building rich, mission-critical applications for the Web.

Join Chief Architect, Bob Buffone, as he explores the development and deployment of Java RIAs, including the top five reasons why Java is the superior choice over other alternatives.
