Program Overview

Click for full agenda <http://events.oasis-open.org/home/forum/2007/schedule>

Delegates responsible for helping define and execute integration projects
in the public sector within the UK, Europe, and around the world are
invited to join us this fall at the third annual Open Standards Forum.
This year’s event will introduce you to some of the key SOA and Web
services standards and show you how the public sector and others are using
these standards to transform the way they interact with citizens,
businesses and other organizations in government and healthcare.  By
participating in this two-day event, you’ll gain an up-to-date
understanding of the core structure, concepts and relations in the jungle
of WS-* specifications and learn how to separate mature from immature
specifications and standards-based approaches from proprietary vendor

Produced by the OASIS open standards consortium and Butler Group analyst
firm, this event features invited presentations, interactive panel
sessions, and thought provoking keynote addresses all aimed at uncovering
the opportunities and challenges standards provide. In addition to
UK-based presenters, the programme features a balanced mix of technology
and case studies from speakers from China, Denmark, Estonia, France,
Germany, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, and the US.

Keynote Addresses from:
• John Wailing, Office of the Chief Information Officer, UK Home Office
• David Keene, Vice President Platform, Technology and Solutions EMEA
Marketing for SAP UK

Speakers for this year’s event include public sector representatives from
A-SIT Austria, Danish National IT and Telecom Agency, Direction Generale
de la Modernisation de L’Etat, NHS Connecting for Health, the UK Home
Office, and RSOE (Hungary).
You’ll also hear presentations from such companies as: AmberPoint, Axway,
BEA, Beijing Digital China Ltd., Capgemini, Cybernetica, Fujitsu Limited,
IBM, JBOSS/Red Hat, Oracle, RSOE, SAP, and more.

Rounding off each day will be a panel session focusing on topics designed
to inspire delegate participation.
