Discussion Highlights the Role of Management in Operating Agile Business Processes

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 14, 2007) - Tidal Software™, a leading provider of application scheduling and performance management software, today announced the live podcast recording of a debate on the monitoring and management of SOA. The event, which took place at the Harvard Club of Boston, featured Jason Bloomberg, Managing Partner of ZapThink, and Dana Gardner, President and Principal Analyst of Interarbor Solutions. Moderating the debate was Martin Milani, CTO of Tidal Software.

This exclusive lunchtime event provided a forum for an informative and lively discussion between two well-recognized industry experts on the state of SOA, its role in the new agile business applications, and the role of SOA performance monitoring and management for both the successful deployment and ongoing operation of these complex applications. Both Bloomberg and Gardner bring deep knowledge and unique perspectives about application management, SOA, web services, and the relevant technologies and standards. Topics included:

--  The role of SOA in delivering new, high value business applications
    and the inevitability of service-based solutions.
--  The requirements for SOA monitoring for these applications.
--  The need to move from reactive to proactive to ultimately preemptive
    monitoring to operationalize these types of applications.
--  The role of monitoring as an active part of the business process to
    deliver applications that support agile business operations.
--  The standards that are important in monitoring SOA applications now
    and in the future.
