October 15, 2009—Service-oriented architecture (SOA) adoption can improve an organization’s agility and reduce costs through the reuse of business functionality in its legacy systems, if it is implemented correctly. Two new one-day courses from the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) give individuals and organizations greater preparation for SOA adoption; both will be offered for the first time in 2010.
Service-Oriented Architecture: Best Practices for Successful Adoption is an introductory course that covers SOA basics and provides a solid overview of what SOA adoption involves. The course explains the components of service-oriented systems, outlines SOA operations, introduces common implementation technologies, and addresses SOA development challenges. Against this backdrop, common misconceptions about SOA are revealed. These concepts point to the potential with SOA adoption for cost-efficiency, agility, adaptability, and leverage of legacy investments.
In order to help organizations turn that potential into a return on investment, The Service-Oriented Architecture: Legacy Systems Migration course introduces the Service Migration and Reuse Technique (SMART). This approach provides an organization with a process to analyze the viability of reusing legacy systems in a target SOA environment and to form a legacy system migration plan, Students work with the SMART activities, interview guide, and templates for output products.
Coinciding with the introduction of these courses, the SEI has announced that the Migrating Legacy Systems to SOA Environments course will be offered only in its eLearning format. This eLearning course was introduced in August 2009.
