St. Louis, MO — Bick CTO David Linthicum will be discussing SOA governance and its importance to cloud computing on a Webcast hosted by BrightTALK, February 25, 2010 at 9:30 a.m. CST.

“The presentation is entitled Why SOA Governance is Critical to Cloud Computing,” states Mr. Linthicum. “Cloud computing needs SOA governance to be successful. If you think about it, at the end state of our architecture we’ll have thousands of services and data elements under management, and thus need to control how they are accessed, added, deleted, and altered. Therefore, we need an approach, processes, procedures, and technology, and that is called governance. In the world of enterprise architecture, governance means control, or to mandate the use of standards and approaches, almost a management concept. In the world of SOA , simply put, governance means designing, building, testing, and implementing policies for services, and monitoring their use”.


David S. Linthicum is a well known thought leader in the cloud computing and service oriented architecture (SOA) space, and the author of the best selling cloud computing book Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in your Enterprise…a Step-by-Step Guide. Mr. Linthicum is the CTO of Bick Group and provides leadership within the emerging cloud computing space, including many public speaking events, four blogs focusing on best practices in the emerging cloud computing market, and a weekly Cloud Computing Podcast.
