DataServices World 2008 West: Where Are Data Services Headed?

Speaker lineup headlined by Dr Michael Carey also includes experts from Adobe, Yahoo!, IBM, Oracle, & Salesforce

DataServices World West 2008, being held November 20 in San Jose, California, at the 14th International SOA World Conference & Expo, has a lineup of speakers headlined by Dr Mike Carey (pictured), one of the 50 Most Influential Computer Scientists in the world. The lineup also includes experts from Adobe, Salesforce, Yahoo!, IBM, m2mi, and DataDirect Technologies.

"DataServices World is about the confluence of databases, data warehousing, business intelligence, enterprise computing and Internet computing," says Ken North, DataServices World 2008 West Conference Chair.

Carey, who leads the lineup, is Bren Professor of Information and Computer Science at UC Irvine and the 2005 recipient of the ACM IGMOD Edgar F. Codd Innovations Award - the computing equivalent of an Academy Award!

Carey, a National Academy of Engineering member, is acknowledged as one of the 50 most influential computer scientists in the world by a UCLA-maintained Web site that tracks research citations. He is best known for his work on advanced database systems and database system performance.

His most influential academic projects have been the EXODUS and SHORE database systems, which continue to influence designers and researchers in the field. In industry, he contributed to IBM’s DB2 Universal Database system and played a leadership role for BEA Systems’ data integration and management solutions. These systems are widely used in the banking, insurance and healthcare industries, and they also have many government applications.

Speaking of the much-acclaimed DataServices World event, which kicked off in March of this year in New York City, Ken North said of Data Services as a technology approach: "Its focus is architectures and technologies for accessing data from heterogenous data sources and providing that data to consumers such as components, services and applications."



North continued:

"Many organizations have a variety of persistent data stores, including SQL databases, geo-coded data files, spreadsheets, content management systems and XML. Services, applications, and mashups can consume and integrate data from disparate data sources. In an n-tier enterprise architecture and a service-oriented architecture, the logic for providing data from databases and other data sources resides in data access layers and data services layer."
