Topic: 
Confronting Chaos: Lessons Learned Managing Enterprise Integration Projects

Projects whose goal is to gather and integrate data across complex organizations offer great value but come with enormous risks. These projects are typically launched with high hopes and enthusiasm, which all too often wanes as the teams confront business change, unforeseen delays, expense and organizational resistance that leads to diminished results, if not outright failure and abandonment.
This presentation will explore the special risks and difficulties posed by Enterprise Integration projects and provide practical pointers on how project managers can address these risks and help assure a successful outcome.
