IT managers have been under increasing pressure to migrate a portfolio of independent "stovepipe" applications to an integrated set of business services that can be aligned with changing business requirements and support new business processes faster and with reduced cost. Today, corporations have to choose from a number of integration products such as Integration Brokers, J2EE Application Servers, and Web Services tools – that have quite different capabilities, never mind different architectures and standards. However, these tools address only partially the challenges that corporate IT is facing: how to systematically and efficiently build and integrate applications using a unified approach, unified architecture and - where feasible – a single platform for application development and integration.
Service Oriented Architectures promise to improve every aspect of integration. Seamless B2B interactions, allowing companies to establish new business relationships and processes without the tedious grunt work that is usually involved when incompatible applications need to exchange information. The same should be true for integration behind the firewall, where legacy systems and packaged applications can now interoperate using standardized interfaces and protocols.
This seminar starts with an overview of the concepts of SOA and its relationship to event based architectures. It then outlines the key issues and guidelines that architects should consider when defining an integration architecture based on services. This seminar will then provide you with an in-depth understanding how the concepts of Service Oriented Architectures relate to Web Service technologies, and how SOA can be applied to integration initiatives within your company and across business partners.
XML and Web Services provide a standards-based approach to implementing a SOA, but it should not be overlooked that a complete B2B Integration or Enterprise Application Integration solution requires a platform that provides a host of integration capabilities.. You will also get an overview of today's predominant platforms for service oriented integration and see how the concepts taught in the seminar have been applied in a real world project.
There has been a great deal of confusion between concepts, standards, and technologies (SOA, Web Services, ESB, etc). This seminar helps you to clearly distinguish between the hype and the reality and teaches you on how apply a practical and proven architecture driven approach to service oriented integration.
