Coming on the heels of the release of Edition 2.0 of the FACE Technical Standard and recent procurement pull from the Army and Navy, The Open Group FACE™ Consortium is pleased to announce a groundbreaking FACE Air Force Technical Interchange Meeting and Exposition on April 2, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn in Fairborn, OH, near Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
I saw the post by Forbes blogger Joe McKendrick in which McKendrick introduces a new term – Service Technology – which cements the concept of a service-oriented thinking that technically enables the realization of SOA within the enterprise followed by its sustained evolution to cloud computing.
Increasingly, the critical systems of the planet — telecommunications, banking, energy and others — depend on and benefit from the intelligence and interconnectedness enabled by existing and emerging technologies. Whether these systems are trusted by the societies they serve depends in part on whether the technologies incorporated into them are fit for the purpose they are intended to serve.
The FACE™ Consortium strategy is changing the way government and industry do business by breaking down barriers to portability – exchanging proprietary solutions for a common and standardized computing environment and components.
