Apatar, Inc., the leading provider of open source software tools for the data integration market, has been selected to speak at the Dr. Dobb's Architecture & Design World 2008 conference, the independent event dedicated to software architecture, design, modeling, and UML. The conference will be held on July 21-24, 2008 at the Hyatt McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, and include 75 focused sessions on real-world topics, visionary keynotes, in-depth training, and networking with peers, industry leaders, and world-class speakers.
Enterprise 2.0 and Data Mashups: Bridging the Information Gap
In his presentation, Renat Khasanshyn, the founder of the Apatar Open Source Data Integration project, will explore how enterprise architects, developers, and business users can leverage existing mashup technologies to build and deploy data mashups. The session will focus on tips and best practices and also highlight the major challenges preventing mashup design tools from being implemented across the enterprise sector. Finally, Mr. Khasanshyn will walk the audience through the process of building "Cold Call Assistant for Salesforce.com," the mashup that won the 2007 IBM Business Mashup Challenge.
After attending this session, you will:
1. Understand the impact of data mashups on the developer community;
2. Learn how to select mashup technologies and tools for your data integration projects;
3. Discover tips, best practices, and strategies for leveraging these tools and solving the most common mashup challenges.
“As the momentum for the new class of SOA middleware continues to grow, enterprise developers are looking for simple yet scalable solutions that can integrate disparate data across a variety of on-premises and on-demand systems and applications,” said Renat Khasanshyn. “With many of such data integration problems being relatively small in scope, companies can't justify bringing in expensive middleware. I’ll be happy to introduce the open source solutions that bring the ease of drag-and-drop data mashup tools to Dr. Dobb's Architecture & Design World attendees.”
