BPMN Workshop at Gartner AADI

If you want to jump-start your BPMN efforts, I'll be offering a half-day pre-conference workshop on Process Modeling with BPMN at the upcoming Gartner Application Architecture, Development & Integration Summit in Orlando. This Gartner event is the leading independent SOA and application infrastructure conference, and the agenda's 6 tracks and 70+ sessions cover future trends and latest best practices in application development, application integration, SOA, Web Services and Web2.0, as well as SaaS/Cloud Computing. My workshop is on the afternoon of June 8; the regular conference runs June 9-11.

The BPMN workshop provides an in-depth tutorial on what has become the key BPM standard, used for both analytical modeling and model-driven implementation in BPM Suites ranging from Oracle, SAP, BEA, and SoftwareAG to Lombardi, TIBCO, Savvion, Appian, and Adobe. You'll learn not only the semantics behind the notation, but patterns and best practices for modeling events and exceptions, flow control, and organizing complex end-to-end models.

There is an additional $495 fee for participating in the workshop, but BPMS Watch has secured a saving of $400 off the standard registration fee for the conference. For complete conference details and to view the agenda visit www.gartner.com/us/aadi-spring. To register and claim your discount call 866-405-2511 and mention priority code: ADISA.

Beyond the workshop, the event is a good opportunity to understand the future of SOA and the web, new application and architecture models, and discuss your specific issues through Gartner 1-1s, roundtables, facilitated working sessions, and online community. Guest keynotes include Nick Carr, Leading Tech and Business Writer on "The Big Switch," and Andrew Lippman, MIT's Media Lab Futurist on "IT Architecture futures."

I'll be available to meet with you one-on-one as well to discuss how BPMN can help bring business and IT together in your organization.

Hope to see you in Orlando.
