The techniques for implementing Web 2.0 apps and SOAs are in fact beginning to converge. Web 2.0 describes the Internet as a "Global SOA" while at the same time laying out practices for building lighter weight SOAs based on REST and RSS.

More interestingly, this phenomenon is actually happening now and helping businesses deliver more value to their customers every day. This fact-filled session will discuss the latest trends citing industry sources, case studies, and other well-known examples.
