SATURN 2011: 7 Things You Need to Know About the Next 7 Years in Architecture

By now I’m sure you’ve heard about the SATURN 2011 Conference theme of Architecting the Future and its focus on “7 Things You Need to Know About the Next 7 Years in Architecture.” To hone our focus on these seven topics and to ensure a rich and high-quality program, we have enlisted thought leaders from industry and from the SEI. Each thought leaders will serve as shepherd and champion for his or her respective topic, reviewing submissions and building an integrated program that may include speakers, tutorials, panel discussions, birds-of-a-feather sessions, etc.

The leaders for our 7 topics are

  1. Architecture is Not Just for Architects (the role of Developers, Business Analysts, Project Managers, Testers, Financial Analysts, Executives): Paul Clements, Senior Member of the Technical Staff, Software Engineering Institute
  2. Architecture, Agile Development, and Business Agility: Rebecca Wirfs-Brock, President, Wirfs-Brock Associates
  3. Soft Skills for Architects: Jeff Tyree, Senior Director, IT Architecture, Capital One Financial Corporation
  4. Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Cloud Computing: Grace Lewis, Senior Member of the Technical Staff, Software Engineering Institute
  5. Architectural Knowledge Management: Olaf Zimmermann, Research Staff Member, Executive IT Architect, IBM Zurich Research Laboratory
  6. Architecting to Meet Tomorrow’s Global Challenges—Health Care, the Smart Grid, the Environment… : Frances Paulisch, Siemens and Chair of IEEE Software Advisory Board
  7. Model-Driven Architecture: Peter Feiler, Senior Member of the Technical Staff, Software Engineering Institute

The technical program committee and I are delighted to have these distinguished individuals engaged in creating a challenging and thought-provoking agenda. To learn more, stay tuned to the SATURN blog as our topic leaders provide insights and discuss their views on SATURN’s “7 things you need to know.”
