    Application agility is critical for health-care insurer Blue
    Cross and Blue Shield of Massachusetts Inc. (BCBSMA) in creating and
    maintaining the services that its hundreds of trading partners and 2.9
    million members rely on. In this session, Rick Sweeney, Chief Architect,
    will explain why BCBSMA is embracing service oriented architecture (SOA)
    and related technologies for multi-partner interoperability.

--  Transformative Technologies: Minimizing Risks and Maximizing Results,
    Jonathan Mack, Senior Technical Architect, Guardian Life Insurance.
    From serving as a representative of the world's largest staffing company on
    HR-XML's original Staffing Industry Data Exchange Standards (SIDES)
    development team, to helping shape the enterprise architecture at
    1800Flowers, to his current role guiding a major reengineering project at
    Guardian Life Insurance, Jonathan Mack has gained a wealth of experience
    with transformative architectures and methodologies, including service
    oriented architecture (SOA) and business process management (BPM). In this
    session, Jonathan will draw on his rich and diverse experiences to share
    the best practices, tactics, and strategies you need to know.

--  Web Services and SOA: Impact Within the HCM Marketplace,
    Karen Beaman, Jeitosa Group International; Kelvin Gray, Workday.
    In this session, internationally renowned experts Karen Beaman, founder of

    benefits within the HCM marketplace.

--  SOA Success: Aligning Your Development Organization,
    Jim Murphy, Vice President, Mindreef.
    Much of the discussion about service oriented architecture (SOA) focuses on
    tools, technologies, and architectural methodologies. Too often, adopters
    fail to give sufficient attention to organizational dynamics required to
    support a successful SOA initiative. In this session, Jim Murphy, Vice
    President Product Management at Mindreef, a leading provider of SOA quality
    and governance solutions, explains how most enterprises beginning a SOA
    initiative soon realize that the biggest obstacles to success are
    organizational, rather than technical.

    David Shaffer, Sr. Director Product Management, Oracle Integration.
    In this session, David Shaffer, Sr. Director Product Management, Oracle
    Integration, will examine the business benefits of BPM

    BPM solutions, and developments with underlying business process standards.
