Course Objectives

This course will introduce you to SOA, one of the most popular business initiatives among corporations and government organisations 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.

Delegates will:

  • Gain an understanding of Service Oriented Architecture.
  • Learn the importance of BPM and governance to a successful SOA.
  • Explore the technology and business impacts of SOA.
  • Understand the SOA value proposition.
  • Learn the lifecycle for services and understand the challenges.
  • Gain a knowledge of security, testing, and information management within SOA.
  • Explore the relative maturity of SOA and models for gauging the maturity of an organization’s SOA initiative.
