TIS-1754 - Information as a service: Leveraging your data server in an SOA Environment
Stephen Brodsky, IBM, Software Architect, Deepak Kohli, IBM, IMS Technical Support
By applying service oriented architecture (SOA) principles to information, you can achieve greater value from your information assets, including the assets in your data server. Companies that apply these principles can increase agility by allowing information to be used in new, easier ways, shortening the cycle between the identification of business requirements and implementation. This session focuses on the specific capabilities in DB2®, Informix® Dynamic Server and Information Management System data servers that leverage technologies such as XML, XQuery, Web services, and Java Database Connectivity, providing the business flexibility demanded by SOA environments. The session also describes the SOA solutions provided to leverage your information assets in an IMS TM/DB environment.

TIS-2502 - The IBM master data management approach in a SOA
BRIAN BYRNE, IBM, Industry Models Architect
Master data such as a party (customer, citizen, and supplier), product, and account play a critical role in a SOA. A key characteristic of master data and its associated services is that they support multiple major business processes and represent frequently accessed services and data. Therefore, Master Data Management (MDM) is critical to the development of SOA. It provides a common source of accurate, consistent and comprehensive master information, exposed through consistent services that can be leveraged across business processes and applications. In this session, we will introduce the general concepts of MDM and give an update on the latest offerings and releases from IBM.
Level: Beginner

TIS-2503 - Leveraging a top-down and bottom-up approach to SOA
Sean T. Crowley, IBM, Marketing Lead, IBM Information Server
This session covers IBM WebSphere® Process Server, IBM Information Server, and industry models, and discusses modeling your own approach to information as a service.
Level: Beginner

TIS-2504 - Approaches to Enterprise Content Management
