SATURN 2011 Course Abstracts

Two SEI courses were offered at SATURN 2011. 

Software Architecture: Principles and Practices

This course is the most fundamental of the six courses in the SEI Software Architecture Curriculum. Software Architecture: Principles and Practices emphasizes the importance of the business (or mission) context in which systems are designed and introduces participants to software architectures in a real-world setting. "Industrial-strength" case studies illuminate the key technical and organizational issues regarding software architectures. This course is based on the book Software Architecture in Practice, 2nd Edition

Advanced Topics in Service-Oriented Architecture

This class provides a starting point for people tasked with the design and implementation of service-oriented architecture in the following areas:

  • architecting and designing service-oriented systems
  • implementing SOA governance
  • securing service-oriented systems
  • testing service-oriented systems

If implemented correctly, SOA adoption can provide business agility, reuse of business functionality, and leverage of legacy systems for an organization. The key word in the previous statement is "IF". There is still widespread belief that SOA can be implemented "out of the box", that SOA is all about technology, that securing service-oriented systems is accomplished via "out of the box" tools, and that testing service-oriented systems is no different than testing any other type of system.

Before registering for this course, participants must have

  • successfully completed Service-Oriented Architecture: Best Practices for Successful Adoption;
  • successfully completed Migrating Legacy Systems to SOA Environments-eLearning; or
  • obtained an SEI waiver acknowledging equivalent service-oriented architecture knowledge. All requests for waivers must be submitted to prior to the start of the course and should detail educational background and SOA professional experience.
