In a 5-month period beginning in late 2018, two Boeing 737 Max aircraft crashed in similar circumstances, killing 343 people.

All 737 Max aircraft were subsequently grounded, where they remain, and the story remains in the news.

June 19, 2019

It’s one of the immutable rules of Information Technology: everything changes all the time. Amid all that paradigm shifting and envelope pushing, does enterprise integration get a pass? Of course not! Conversations about Integration once involved terms like “service oriented architecture” and “enterprise service bus.” But times and the vocabulary have changed, and those conversations -- like the one you are about to hear -- now involve a new vocabulary: containers, serverless, REST, APIs. The people doing the talking in this program are experienced architects with plenty to say about changing views on enterprise integration.
