AccuRev Webinar with Uttam Narsu: How SOA Impacts and Changes Your Enterprise SCM Best Practices

Lexington, MA, November 14, 2006 --( AccuRev Inc. presents its latest complimentary Webinar, “Evolving SCM Best Practices: How SOA Impacts and Changes Your Enterprise Best Practices,” presented by Uttam Narsu, former Giga/Forrester analyst and Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) expert.

Service oriented architecture (SOA) and service-based development (SBD) are changing the software development game, bringing new challenges to traditional software configuration management (SCM) practices. This presentation focuses on identifying what the evolving new best practices are, their impact on existing enterprise SCM implementations, and how to implement these changed practices cost-effectively without jeopardizing the success of ongoing projects.

Narsu commented, “Service oriented architecture (SOA) and service-based development (SBD) hold great promise to transform failure-laden IT departments to engines of company growth. But without examining critical lifecycle processes like SCM, and making necessary changes, SOA/SBD projects can fail. SCM tools that allow easy project reorganization, or process changes, increase an organizations ability to do SOA well.”

Mr. Narsu will:

• Review SOA and its impact on enterprise software development;
• Review key SCM best practices in the light of SOA;
• Identify key challenges of SOA/SBD to SCM;
• Identify resulting SOA/SDB compliant best practices;
• Examine case studies for impact on enterprise SCM; and
• Recommend an ROI-based implementation path.

To register for this online event taking place on Thursday, November 16 at 2:00 p.m. EST, please visit Mr. Narsu will be available for questions following his presentation.
