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.
