UDEF is a means for correcting the poor names issue which gives the early adopters of UDEF an immediate benefit while enabling the system for interoperability.
Cloud is an emerging topic while SOA is a mature one. The unconference format is great for enabling people to share experience in new topic areas. It resulted in some good discussions, exposing interesting ideas.
The main themes at this week’s Conference are Cybersecurity, Enterprise Architecture, SOA and Cloud Computing. But there are a number of common threads running through it all relating to value delivered to IT customers through open systems; one of those threads is Interoperability.
