Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) - The Business Case
This course is a non-technical introduction to implementing an SOA and showing how it can help your business by reducing costs, increasing business agility and eliminating duplicate effort within your business. It illustrates at a high level what SOA means, how it can be implemented and gives straightforward illustrations of how similar techniques are used outside of the IT world to gain the similar benefits.

To attend this session, you will simply have a desire to understand the benefits that SOA can bring to your organisation.

Duration: Half day

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) - What is it?
There is much hype currently around the concept of a Service Oriented Architecture or SOA, but how many people really know what this means? What benefits can it bring? Many of the first assembler programmers on older platforms could legitimately state that they were implementing services and thus a Services Oriented Architecture and, since then, programmers on different platforms in different languages have been doing the same thing. This course will get under the hype, get down to what SOA really means, illustrate how it can really help in today’s complex environments and why. You will also come out of this course being able to differentiate between SOA implementations that are 'proprietary' and those that are truly open.

To attend this session, it would be useful to have some knowledge of existing or more traditional approaches for application integration.

Duration: Half day

Implementing a standard SOA - Introduction to the standards
This course gives technical detail about the de facto standards that are being used today to implement truly interoperable systems as against the proprietary SOA that some organisations are offering. It discusses in more technical detail how the standards work and why. It will also include a short demo showing how the standards allow interoperability.

To attend this session, you should have some technical knowledge about connecting applications and systems together and the problems there are with today's 'traditional' methods to achieve this. Some knowledge of TCP/IP and HTTP is also desirable.

Duration: Half day

Using SOA Standards to Securely Integrate Existing Resources
This course describes how the latest SOA standards can be used to securely and efficiently make your existing resources available as part of your standard SOA infrastructure. This course will illustrate how your core business IT assets, running on any platform, can play a full part in the infrastructure rather than being access via adapters and technologies that are different to configure, prone to error and different depending on the resources involved.

To attend this session, you should have a good knowledge of the SOA standards and be familiar with problems with the current mechanism for integrating legacy data.
