WEST HARTFORD, Conn., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Southern New England Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI), the world's largest project management member association, will host its ninth annual project management conference April 28th and 29th at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT.
The 2014 Project Management Conference, entitled "The Passion and Power of Project Management™" will provide attendees with an opportunity to learn, share, and network. The conference is open to anyone associated with project management including local business leaders, non-profit organizations, government institutions, and project management professionals.
We are thrilled to announce Stephen M. R. Covey will present the opening keynote session. Stephen is world-renowned for his presentation on Trust and Teamwork. More information on Mr. Covey's vision and message is available via this web link: http://www.myspeedoftrust.com/events/Covey-LIVE
Stephen M. R. Covey is a cofounder of CoveyLink and the FranklinCovey Global Speed of Trust Practice. He is the New York Times and #1Wall Street Journal best-selling author of "The SPEED of Trust", a groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting book that challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue and instead demonstrates that trust is a hard-edged, economic driver.
This fast-paced and engaging presentation dramatically reveals TRUST as the hidden variable that will become your most leverageable tool, giving you a distinct strategic advantage. We call it "Leading at the SPEED of TRUST." Join us to hear more on Stephen's approach and why he advocates that the ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust with all stakeholders is the critical leadership competency of the new global economy.
This annual conference includes multiple sessions targeted at contextual and contemporary issues faced in managing projects today. Sample topics include:
- Communication: "Extraordinary Communications Creates Successful Project Managers and Begins with You"
- Leadership: "Business Leadership – A Critical Success Factor to Excellent Project Execution"
- Team Management: "Team Emotional Intelligence – Harnessing Behavior to Achieve High Performance!"
- Time Management: "Key Concepts for Running Effective Meetings"
While there are many sessions to choose from, there is also ample time to network and meet colleagues.
Registration is now open for the Conference and Workshop programs. Register soon to secure your seat to hear this dynamic presenter and to take advantage of the many other education sessions, networking opportunities and sponsor exhibits! Registration will close on April 25th at midnight, and no walk-ins are allowed.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...
