SOA for Architects & Managers training course (code: SOAMNGR)


Our Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) training course will detail an architectural concept which defines the use of services to meet the requirements of software users. An SOA environment will consist of nodes on a network which make resources available to other participants in the network as independent services (for instance Web Service) which are accessed in a standardised way. With so many "SOA badged" tools available it can be hard to know where to start looking, or even to know what you should be looking for.


Ideally suited to high-level enterprise application architects, developers and managers.
