Course Objectives

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) shows demonstrable signs of simplifying software integration. It can reduce the cost of integration significantly. The approach is not new but may be a paradigm shift for many organizations. This is analogous to e-Business, which is essentially client-server computing, but ushered many new possibilities. This course is designed primarily for IT managers. The goal is to explain in clearly understandable terms what SOA is and how it can aid application integration. The course proceeds to cover typical development lifecycle and various roles people play in the process. The course will help the managers build a vision for future development activities.

This course will also provide a brief overview of:

  • Enterprise Service Bus (ESB).
  • The SOA development methodology (SOAD).
  • How to integrate legacy applications using SOA?

After completing this course, the attendee should be able to appreciate:

  • What is SOA?
  • How can SOA help a business?
  • Best practices.
  • SOA Governance Model.
