UC ITLC Meeting on SOA

Wow! That’s bunch of acronyms. ☺

I was invited to attend one of the University of California IT Leadership Council meetings. http://www.ucop.edu/irc/itlc/welcome.html This is a group of IT Architects and CIO’s that meet on a regular basis and cover specific topics. It’s very much like a Common Solutions Group for the UC system. This particular event was on the topic of Service Oriented Architecture.

I was invited by the CIO of UC Berkeley, Shelton Waggener. There was a fair amount of enterprise infrastructure integration on the agenda but the primary focus was SOA for the use of administrative systems.There was a wide range of sophistication from university to university in terms of use and vision around SOA. Apart from a deeper idea of business applications of SOA, what I found most illuminating was the difference between state systems (which lend themselves to federation) and the relatively provincial nature of private institutions, like Stanford.
