With Day 3 behind us, and the fifth annual SOA & Business Process Conference coming to a close, we can officially declare the last week a success! It was great to see lots of familiar faces over the last several days, and to have a chance to reflect on how much progress the industry has made toward achieving ROI with real-world SOA in a short timeframe. We're looking forward to continuing these conversations with our customers and partners over the course of the next year.

We shifted gears a bit on Day 3, and started talking more about the 'consume' phase of SOA--specifically how customers will capture and view their business critical information through front end technologies such as Microsoft Dynamics, SharePoint and Visio. It's also important to remember that this all plugs into a larger shift the industry is seeing right now to software plus services, and a bigger focus on "cloud" computing. It's a blended world out there! For more, check out the day 3 recap video: http://channel9.msdn.com/Showpost.aspx?postid=353080

Hope to see you all at next year's event. Details coming soon!
