Thanks to David Burella, I have presented K2 at the hobart .Net user group on Tuesday (26th) night. We went through business process management and a demo of K2.net 2003 and then we looked at K2 blackpearl and the beta 2 components. I have showed how we would use smart objects, infopath forms services integration and the new VS.NET integration. People also liked the reports designer and the notification events pieces.

SOA and Web Services have been traditional Composite Application integration technologies, with Enterprise Service Buses often forming the core of enterprise solutions leveraging these technologies and approaches.
