WA1470 Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) for Managers

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 no-nonsense course is designed for the 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.

WA1516 Business Process Modeling for SOA

This course introduces the participants to the theoretical aspects of process modeling. This course explores the forces driving the need for modeling business processes, the modeling effort as a project, and the critical success factors for making the effort successful. The course provides a way to document, understand, analyze and improve business processes.

The focus of the course is not any specific modeling tool. Instead, it tries to explain the principles of process modeling. For the lab exercises, the class uses Eclipse SOA Tools Platform's process modeling tool and IBM's WebSphere Business Modeler.

WA1549 SOA Best Practices for Business

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is a popular and innovative approach to Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). It is process-centric, leveraging Business Process Management (BPM) techniques, and inundated with standards and strategies, necessitating formal governance. With so many facets to SOA, and the break-neck pace of the industry, it is no wonder that organizations are in need of solid best practices guidance.

This course addresses best practices, design patterns, and recommendations tailored to the business side of SOA. For information on our Best Practices course for the technical side of SOA, check out WA1560.

The course offers practical knowledge regarding the right and wrong way to adopt SOA within an organization. Teams that are relatively new to SOA will learn valuable knowledge and skills regarding how to implement SOA right the first time. Experienced SOA teams will extend their understanding of SOA and gain insight into advanced concepts and strategies.

WA1565 Securing the Service Oriented Enterprise

This 1-day course will prepare you to identify, define, diagnose, and implement a comprehensive security strategy for a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) initiative. SOA opens up a whole realm of security issues due to its ubiquity, decentralization, distributed, and even federated nature. Students will be exposed to a broad range of enterprise SOA security subjects, providing a solid foundational understanding of valid and in-valid approaches to designing and implementing SOA security.

Concepts in this course are re-enforced through a combination of group discussion, live demos and daily reviews.
