Participants will be exposed to a broad range of enterprise SOA subjects, providing a solid foundational understanding of both business and technology elements of SOA.Concepts in this workshop are re-enforced through a combination of group discussion, class exercises, case study explorations, and daily reviews.

This course explores the forces driving the need for modeling business processes, the modeling effort as a project, and the critical success factors for making the effort successful. The course provides a way to document, understand, analyze and improve business processes.The focus of the course is not any specific modeling tool. Instead, it tries to explain the principles of process modeling. For the lab exercises, the class uses Eclipse SOA Tools Platform's process modeling tool and IBM's WebSphere Business Modeler.
This course provides an introduction to SOA, process-driven business alignment, corporate and technology governance, and provides a realistic look at the SOA value proposition.
