In this session recorded at Glue Conference in May, Phil Wainewright talks about the changing web and the fact software technologists need to adapt to face the new challenges: elaborating the right contracts, discovering the necessary resource in a world full of resources, and creating a business case adaptable to change.
Phil Wainewright founded the ASPnews.com website to track the emergence of ASPs and on-demand providers. He now writes the ZDNet Software as Services blog and, as CEO of strategic consulting firm Procullux Ventures, advises ISVs and other industry participants on SaaS success strategies.
Glue is the only conference devoted solely to solving the web application integration problem-set. People that should attend Glue include the architects, developers, administrators and integrators that have moved past the initial step of seeing the web as a platform, and are facing the real-world challenges of what "stove-piped" web applications mean for their overall strategy. Glue is about all of bits and pieces, APIs and meta-data, standards and connectors that will help us to glue together the varying applications of the new platform.
