This instructor-led SOA training course is designed for senior Stakeholders including Business Managers, Business Analysts and senior IT Managers and Architects. Learn how this new paradigm can help you engineer large-scale, service based applications efficiently, and design systems than can grow, change, and scale. Also learn about implementation strategies with Web Services, the innovative new technology that makes SOA possible. By coupling open, XML-based standards with existing Internet communication protocols, Web Services allow developers to create and consume services regardless of location, implementation, or platform. Learn how you can leverage SOA and Web Services for new and legacy application development!
