Breakout

Gathering Requirements for SOA: How we mapped a customer's processes across multiple lines of business to identify, prioritise, and estimate delivery of common services
Roundtables
-----------------
- Pluggable application frameworks for Agile delivery: OSGi and similar application component frameworks allow selective feature bundling and deployment.  This can be used to manage incremental software delivery cycles and break down monolithic applications to achieve service orientation within applications.
- Dynamic languages in the enterprise: Ruby and other dynamic programming languages are gaining traction among many of our customers globally.  What constitutes an "enterprise-ready" platform and does Ruby meet the criteria?
- Domain specific languages: I see someone has also put forward software factories.  Can we include DSLs in there too?
