Practical SOA for the Solution Architect - Tuesday, October 25th 2011
By Dasunpriya Anuradha Mallikarachchi
- 7 Oct, 2011
This session aims at retelling the SOA philosophy in a simple and practically applicable form, independent of the vendor tools used to implement it. We call it “Practical SOA” because busy practitioners can learn it quickly and apply it at once on their current projects. Solution architects would benefit the most by attending this session. Our lightweight yet rigorous approach will very quickly equip them with the skills to apply SOA technology more effectively at work. Others involved in critical business projects requiring the integration of disparate systems and applications would also find this session useful. It is a technology concept webinar, not a detailed technical session, so it should make sense to people in a broad range of roles.
In this webinar, we will discuss the two layers of SOA that practitioners need to be mindful of, the three core SOA technology components that every practitioner must understand and know when to use, the eight supporting technology aspects that refine a solution design and the four critical data design principles that, if ignored, can negate the significant investments in SOA technology. At the end of one hour, you will have the insights you need to grasp the spirit of SOA, and a few simple thumb rules to get you on your way.
