In his presentation, “Frontiers in Data Access” John de Longa will offer technical insight and valuable advice for enterprise, system and data architects as well as application developers and managers. He will discuss how to improve the scalability and flexibility of data access strategies.
“As more organisations implement service-oriented architectures they find themselves with a multitude of business services that need to access enterprise data – too often data access issues are overlooked until they become a problem,” explains John de Longa. “I’ll be exploring the concept of data services as an emerging approach for addressing data challenges in SOA.”
Data services enhance flexibility and simplify application development by providing a consistent mechanism for accessing, integrating and updating enterprise data, regardless of where it is stored.
