Starting Jan 18 (2005), there will be 3-4 weeks of webcasts available for architects and developers and IT pros dealing with interoperability between MS .Net platforms and IBM, BEA, and MS-COM applications and systems. Also included are architectural webcasts detailing how to plan for interoperability in your designs. Check out the list of webcasts at http://www.interopmonth.com.
One of the Webcasts is titled: Microsoft and Interoperability. Do They Really Get It? With a title like that, you gotta at least watch the first 5-10 minutes, right? (1/25/05 9AM PST)
