From SOA to PaaS: How to create enterprise architectures in the cloud

There are those who believe that cloud computing means we can avoid traditional best practices. They think they can avoid a solid foundation in architecture planning. As cloud systems are created, we find that nothing is further from the truth.

Lessons learned from the use of SOA and other architectural best practices are beneficial when applied to the construction of cloud-based systems. Applications developed using PaaS and other cloud-based tools should be designed in keeping with principles such as request-driven programmatic access, loose coupling of components, and stateless instances.

In this GigaOM webinar, leading experts on architecture and development provide their guidance, best practices, and approaches to leverage public and private cloud computing technology. The experts will dive into understanding core requirements, understanding the business case, working with constraints, and the systemic application of governance and security.
