Listen as SOA experts explore how IT management will evolve in the world of service-based applications. The discussion delves into issues of new standards, how SOA demands that performance management and change management augment and elevate the role of systems management, and how the integrity of services delivery requires a deep and wide approach to "management in total" across a service's lifecycle. Panelists consist of Jason Bloomberg, managing partner and senior analyst at ZapThink, and Dana Gardner, president and principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
