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.
