  • Overview

    This 3-day course will introduce you to SOA (Service Oriented Architecture), one of the most popular business initiatives among corporations and government organizations today. Service Oriented Architecture provides a more agile and comprehensive way to integrate information systems and businesses processes than more traditional approaches. Students will be exposed to a broad range of enterprise SOA subjects, providing a solid foundational understanding of both business and technology elements of SOA.

    Concepts in this workshop are re-enforced through a combination of group discussion, class exercises, case study explorations, and daily reviews.

    Topics will include:

    • SOA Fundamentals
    • Web Services
    • Service Layers
    • SOA Value Proposition
    • Service Registries
    • Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)
    • SOA Information Management
    • Business Process Management (BPM)
    • SOA Service Lifecycle
    • Service Oriented Analysis and Design (SOAD)
    • SOA Testing
    • SOA Security
    • Challenges, Risks, and SOA Governance
    • SOA Maturity Models
  • Who Should Take This Course

    Audience

    This course is applicable to both technical and business personnel. It provides a general foundation in Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and addresses a wide range of enterprise elements and job roles.
