Reuse is commonly regarded as one of the main benefits of using Service Oriented Architecture, however many organizations adopting SOA have stumbled in establishing methods for identifying and provisioning reusable enterprise services.

This conference explores proven industry best practices for service reuse in the Federal government. Join the conversation as we explore the concept and benefits of a Service Factory, discuss the use of semantic information integration and the Cloud for managing Big Data through case studies, panels and interactive presentations.
