As the “cloud” becomes a common platform, web applications still live in a “stovepipe” world. It’s not a question of “should we move to the cloud?” It’s a question of once some, or most, or all of our web applications live in the cloud, how do we handle the problems of scalability, security, identity, storage, integration and interoperability?
What was the problem of “enterprise application integration” in the late 90s, is now the cambrian explosion of web–based applications that will demand similar levels of integration. The problem, put simply, is how to “glue” all of these apps, data, people, work–flows, and networks together.
Glue is the only conference devoted solely to this new problem–set facing architects, developers and integrators. At Glue, we’ll explore the new technologies that are forming around web applications in a post–cloud world.
SNIA’s own Mark Carlson will be presenting on CDMI at Gluecon, and you can check out the rest of the Gluecon agenda here: http://www.gluecon.com/2010/Glue2010_Agenda.htm
