4) Module 3: Rapid Delivery Technologies for EA
What you'll learn
- Understand the Role of the Internet and XML in achieving Enterprise Integration
- Understand the concepts of Extensible Markup Language (XML).
- Understand how Extensible Style Language (XSL) is used for display formatting output with XML.
- Appreciate how XML can be used to define any executable language, through XML elements that are commands to be executed by an associated XML processor that understands the purpose and logic behind those commands.
- Understand the principles of Business Trading Communities, together with the strategies used by several EAI Trading Community vendors and their products.
- Understand the principles of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI), together with the strategies used by several EAI vendors and their products.
- Understand the principles of Electronic Business XML (ebXML) and how it has ben developed to replace Electronic Data Interchange (EDI).
- Understand the principles of Web Services and the strategies used by several Web services vendors and their products.
- Understand how error processing can be handled, using EAI, Web Services and ebXML approaches.
- Appreciate how real-time Enterprise Integration can be achieved using EAI, Web Service s or ebXML.
- Understand the concepts of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and the strategies used by several SOA vendors and their products.
- Understand the concepts of Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) used to generate XML-based executable code.
- Understand the concepts of various Business Process Management (BPM) languages, including Business Process Modeling Language (BPML), Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), Business Process Specification Schema (BPSS) ) for ebXML and Web Services Choreography Interface (WSCI).
- This Course has one prerequisite. It requires prior completion of “Module 1: Introduction to Enterprise Architecture for Managers and IT”.
This Course provides training in the latest technologies for the rapid delivery of Enterprise Architecture projects to be delivered into production in 3-month increments.
This Module 3 Course covers Day 5 of the Rapid Delivery of Enterprise Architecture Workshop. Through Lectures on Technology concepts, Vendor Strategies and Product Descriptions, it teaches the rapid delivery technologies for transforming businesses and their supporting databases and systems so they can change rapidly to compete in the rapid change environment of the 21st Century.
The Course presents each new technology in a separate Section, together with the vendor strategies and product descriptions associated with that Section. It comprises 7 Sections that cover the technical concepts and products of the latest technologies used for the rapid delivery into production of Enterprise Architecture (EA) projects.
- Section 1 describes the role of the Internet and XML in achieving Enterprise Integration.
- Section 2 introduces the concepts of Extensible Markup Language (XML).
- Section 3 introduces Extensible Style Language (XSL) for formatting and displaying output using XML.
- Section 3 demonstrates how XML can be used to define any executable language, through XML elements that are commands to be executed by an associated XML processor that understands the purpose and logic behind those commands. These principles are used for Business Process Execution Language (BPEL) snd other XML-based languages, covered in Section 6.
- Section 4 introduces the principles of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) and discusses several EAI vendors and their products. Further product descriptions are provided in the downloaded document: “Chap11.pdf”.
- Section 5 introduces Web Services concepts and discusses the strategies of several Web services vendors and their products. Further product descriptions are provided in the downloaded document: “Chap13.pdf”.
- Section 6 introduces the concepts of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and of Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN) used to generate XML-based executable code in various Business Process Management (BPM) languages. Further product descriptions are provided in the downloaded document: “Chap14.pdf”.
- Section 7 provides a more complete description and demonstration of BPMN using Visible Analyst. This section is presented by Russell Abisla of Visible Systems Corporation in Boston, MA.
