Kim Kazmaier, senior integration architect, Bank of America, tackles the governance, management and transformational issues involved when implementing a Service-Oriented Architecture using industrial-strength Web services.
This presentation by the 3rd largest US domestic bank explores the real-world challenge of providing common services on a massive scale to integrate the consumer channels.
