SOA is gaining momentum because it is seen as the key for Enterprises to achieve Business agility, improved quality of service and lowered total cost of ownership.
Over the past two years, most Fortune 1000 companies have started to embrace a SOA approach for initial e-Business projects, as well as for integration of existing systems. Many analysts predict that companies are now ready to take the next step - a more systematic adoption of Service-Oriented practices. However, new technologies like Web Services and the latest generation development tools are not sufficient for successful implementation of an Enterprise SOA.
This seminar conducted will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the concepts of Service Oriented Architectures, and how they can be mapped to XML and Web Service technologies. You will gain insight how SOA can be applied to development and integration initiatives within your company.
Today's predominant platforms for building new Business applications "J2EE and .NET" will be examined in terms of their support for SOA, and the major integration approaches for B2B and EAI will be looked at from a SOA perspective.
