Enterprise Architecture and SOA

  • Business Analyst Guide to SOA - This live, interactive virtual classroom seminar introduces the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) from the perspective of the Business Analyst… the person who will obtain business requirements and design the SOA business application components.  
  • Understanding and Applying SOA - This one day SOA literacy seminar provides a comprehensive and independent overview of SOA. What is it? How does it work and why is it different? What are the business justifications for SOA? When and how should organizations use the SOA approach?
  • Lessons Learned on the SOA Journey - Practical Perspectives from the SOA Trenches - In this one-day workshop, participants will position and assess SOA initiatives in terms of SOA evolutionary stages, SOA motivation scenarios and SOA cycle phases. The workshop will define approaches for SOA initiatives and projects and pinpoint 13 potholes on the SOA journey and how to avoid them.
  • Service Oriented Analysis and Design - SOAD  - How do business application designers and developers create and construct the composite applications and Web Services that will run on the SOA? What's different about designing composite applications and Web Services? This two-day seminar teaches participants how to identify business function patterns, analyze service candidates, and work through the design decisions to create web services for use in a SOA composite application.
  •  SOA/Web Services Executive Summary  - This half-day briefing provides straightforward information about SOA.  No vendor hype.  No wild promises.  Just the plain unadorned truth about why you should consider investing in SOA-Web Services. What SOA will cost you. How you might benefit. We designed the SOA-Web Services Executive Summary specifically for Business Area and IT leaders who need "SOA Literacy". 
  • Roadmap to SOA Succes - A Manager's Guide - This two-day seminar explains what a management  team responsible for SOA application and architecture projects must know and must do to get ready for the increasingly complex SOA projects that they undertake.
  • Enterprise Integration Strategies - The Convergence of SOA, MDM, a Canonical Data Model and an Integration Hub - This one-day briefing shows how to combine Master Data Management (MDM), a Canonical Data Model, Publish & Subscribe event-driven services and an Integration Hub in a Services-Oriented Architecture (SOA) to construct a practical and scalable integration solution that works now and provides an agile and extensible foundation for meeting future integration requirements.
 Since launching our SOA training curriculum in May 2005, we have conducted SOA training programs for a wide variety of clients. Here’s a sample of what PESG SOA training clients had to say about their training experience:

“I liked the fact that this class was concise and exactly what I was looking for. I sincerely feel that this was the perfect class for me. It allowed me to tie together so many things and explain things related to my environment that I have never fully understood. Great class!”
