SOA EDUCATION

Some businesses are exploring the service-oriented waters for the first time; others are embarking upon their first service-based pilot program, while others are up and running with a service-oriented enterprise. Regardless of where your business is within this spectrum, Web Age has an education track to fit your SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) needs.

If you are interested in following one or more of these education tracks, or if you would like to discuss the development of a custom SOA curriculum for your enterprise, please contact a Web Age Account Executive.
