This course will delve into all aspects of a Cloud Computing implementation, starting from a definition of what it actually means and assessment of whether it is suitable for a given company to the strategy alignment, implementation and operation of a working solution. It will cover Infrastructure-as-a-Service, Platform-as-a-Service, and Software-as-a-Service as the many integration and management components that are necessary to make this work together to fulfill business requirements.
Service Oriented Architecture
This course examines the various aspects of a Service-oriented Architecture (SOA). It explores the comprehensive plan to interrelate business with technology. It displays how SOA combines the talents and skills of an entire organization, with its requisite needs and computing know-how. It focuses on the necessary tools—processes, best practices, and standards—for developing a sound SOA, Service-Oriented Modeling: Service Analysis, Design, and Architecture. It also introduces a service-oriented modeling framework that employs an agile and universal business and technology language to facilitate analysis,
design, and architecture initiatives.
