Second Russian Forum
(ICAS 2012)

Dear Colleagues,

Here is to invite you to visit us at the Second Russian Forum on integration of larger applied corporate systems, ICAS 2012, supported by OSP-Con Agency of Corporate Communications, and Open Systems Magazine.

The Second Russian Forum Integration of Complex Applied Systems is a successor to the 2011 Forum of the same name that became the first event in Russia to be dedicated solely to the problems of large, corporate applied systems' integration. Last year’s Forum was noted for the numerous speeches by representatives of customer companies.

Keeping the good work of the previous event, ICAS 2012 sees into integration issues on all architecture levels of modern IT systems, infrastructure to IT strategy. Integration on data, application and business process levels is at the core of the problem. Local and international expertise proves integration issues arise even if companies build proprietary software, with certain architecture and interface requirements. That said, this year’s Forum will pay special attention to software development and testing.

ICAS-2012 format suggests plenary sessions followed by parallel sections. Key topics of the sections will include

  • business process integration
  • data and application integration
  • software development and testing — integration aspects

Presentations by industry experts as well as representatives of customer companies with vast experience in integration will constitute a substantial part of the Forum. It will be topped off with a global open discussion on the daunting issues of applied systems integration as addressed today by Russian organizations. The Forum format also includes several educational and technical workshops, a solution exhibition, and media events.

The Forum is meant for large and medium Russian companies facing all sorts of complex applied solution adoption, maintenance and development problems — including their integration in legacy software infrastructure. We’ll be glad to greet IT vice presidents; CIOs; IT Directors; IT managers in charge of introduction and support of complex corporate systems; heads of departments using applied systems; system architects; developers and builders of IT systems in companies of all sizes and specifics.

Organizers believe ICAS 2012 will bring together about 300 industry professionals.
