I’ll be speaking this Tuesday, Nov 16 at the Gartner Application Architecture, Development and Integration Summit in Los Angeles. My talk is during lunch, so if you’re at the conference and hungry, you should definitely come by and see the show. I’ll be exploring the issues architects face when integrating cloud services—including not just SaaS, but also PaaS and IaaS—with on-premise data and applications. I’ll also cover the challenges the enterprise faces when leveraging existing identity and access management systems in the cloud. I’ll even talk about the thinking behind Daryl Plummer’s Cloudstreams idea, which I wrote about last week.
Come by, say hello, and learn not just about the issues with cloud integration, but real solutions that will allow the enterprise to safely and securely integrate this resource into their IT strategy.
