Service-Oriented Analysis and Design is a five day in-depth course geared for software architects and designers who need to understand what SOA is, the impact of SOA, what it means in terms of today’s systems and architectures, and how to apply the concepts in designing distributed architectures.
This an advanced level SOA training course, designed for architects who need to identify, design, and lead the implementation of SOA projects. We will explore and apply the terminology, the specification, the processes and technologies specific to SOA.
This course provides coverage of advanced SOA concepts and practices for enterprise applications. The goal of this course is to empower architects with the knowledge and foresight they need to design and lead the implementation of realistic SOA-based business application projects. In addition, there is an extensive review of topics such as Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), the Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), SOAP, Web Services Description Language (WSDL), and Web services.
At the conclusion of the course, attendees will be able to:
- Explain the business impact of SOA
- Understand the history of services-oriented architecture and what design processes led up to SOA
- Discuss the challenges to adopting SOA in the enterprise
- Apply the concepts and principles of SOA to on-going and future projects
- Understand the various web service standards available to support SOA
- Explain how Enterprise Application Integration affects the reuse of existing applications
- Relate what SOA means from architectural and development perspectives
- Discuss business process analysis and its relation to BPEL
- Understand the difference between OO analysis and design and SOA analysis and design
- List the various roles involved in Service-oriented Analysis and Design (SOAD)

- Understand the importance of business process modeling
- Understand the difference between RPC’s and REST as a means of requesting resources
- List the advantages of web services as a distributed systems technology
- Explain governance and how it applies to SOA and IT in general
