Background

In 2009, the DoD SOA Symposium demonstrated that SOA must be considered a Team Sport – involving all elements of people, process and technology, and highlighting the necessity of Trust. The 2010 Symposium highlighted that individual and team Discipline is critical to making SOA a successful reality. The theme was Discipline, Teamwork and Semantic Technologies.

This 3rd Annual SOA & Semantic Technology Symposium focuses on the technology and standards required to drive semantic interoperability and realize IT efficiencies within the Department of Defense and beyond. The Symposium addresses enterprise services that promote reuse, lessen redundancy and waste, and enable the Department to share knowledge and achieve enterprise business analytics. The theme for 2011 is Perseverance!

The Annual DoD SOA & Semantic Technology Symposium is a special event for government and industry IT decision makers, business and technology professionals; providing a forum to connect, share, strategize and educate one another on government and industry best practices and emerging technology.

Who Should Attend?

All of those wanting to develop a better understanding of the strategy and direction of SOA and semantic technology for the Department of Defense, and how these activities support attainment of mission objectives and IT acquisition reform goals mandated by Congress, driven by efficiency needs and being developed by the DCMO.

Symposium attendees will gain insight from inspiring Keynote Speakers, listening to papers and presentations on specific SOA & Semantic Technology projects, hearing case studies from the perspective of user organizations that address:

  • Standards-based Approaches to Semantic Data

  • Shared Understanding and Interoperable Business Operations

  • SOA and Semantic Services

  • Data Management

  • Business Analytics
