On asked why one should consider attending this webinar, Vish said the “The webinar is aimed at helping top management and decision makers leverage existing IT systems and investments by adopting SOA. CIOs and IT managers are often reluctant to adopt SOA with the perception that it requires complete overhaul of their existing legacy systems. Even when they bite the bullet and decide to implement SOA, many a times the implementation just drifts away due to lack of good transformational roadmap or lack of good services blueprint. We will address some of the common fears and SOA implementation roadblocks in this webinar. “
