Architecture Track:

Take an architectural approach to enterprise-class software intensive systems using Microsoft technology.  This year the the architecture TechEd track will be highlighting Connected Systems Infrastructure.  Connected Systems are becoming pervasive as a result of current economic and technological drivers for companies to be more agile, drive down costs, and integrate heterogeneous, globally dispersed systems. New applications no longer live in single process or machine silos. Applications need to be designed to be a part of a connected network of services to build systems that span multiple machines and reach beyond corporate firewalls. Also, in order to increase an organization's agility when responding to market and changing strategic requirements, the information flow between services that carry out these business operations must be streamlined.
