ZapThink SOA Training & Certification: The Leading Vendor Independent, Architect-Focused SOA Training

ZapThink’s Licensed ZapThink Architect (LZA) SOA Training & Certification Boot Camp is recognized around the world as the best single Service-Oriented Architecture training course available anywhere.

The LZA SOA Boot Camp is an intensive, four day “fire hose” of information that prepares you to succeed with your SOA efforts, whether you’re just beginning them or are well down the road with SOA. ZapThink’s LZA SOA Training reflects the best thinking and research that ZapThink produces.

Announcing Version 10.1 of the Licensed ZapThink Architect SOA course!

With new content on “next generation” SOA: more lightweight, decentralized, RESTful, and Cloud-friendly. We cover “first generation” SOA as well, of course: ESB-centric, Web Services-based. But many of today’s organizations are interested in moving past this heavyweight approach.

Take the LZA course to learn how to leverage next generation SOA in your organization!

ZapThink’s LZA SOA training & certification has no prerequisites, and is designed for architects, but appropriate for people with different roles and levels of expertise. This course is valuable for anyone who wants in-depth knowledge about how to succeed with SOA.

 

What makes the LZA SOA Boot Camp so special?

  • Vendor independent – We discuss vendors in context, both good and bad. You get a balanced perspective on each vendor we discuss.
  • Architect focused – The course concentrates on what architects have to do to be successful with SOA in their own organizations. We balance technology details with organizational approaches. If you’re not an architect you’ll learn how to think like one in this class!
  • Practical – we connect theory to practice with what really works in organizations like yours.
  • Current – we refresh the course on a regular basis to reflect the latest SOA best practices, as well as how SOA relates to other architectural challenges in the enterprise.
  • Enterprise context – SOA is an approach to organizing enterprise IT resources to meet changing business needs. We place SOA into the context of large organizations, with complex, heterogeneous IT environments and all the politics and bureaucracy that every large organization faces.
  • Globally recognized certification – Everybody who completes the LZA SOA Boot Camp obtains a certificate representing their LZA credential, giving you the right to call yourself a Licensed ZapThink Architect with all the privileges that come along with this exclusive credential.
  • Led by globally recognized SOA thought leader – All ZapThink’s courses are developed and led by Jason Bloomberg, President of ZapThink. Jason has been an analyst with ZapThink since 2001 and is the co-author of Service Orient or Be Doomed! as well as his new book, The Agile Architecture Revolution.
  • Not too technical, not too high-level – Unlike courses offered by others, we cover the technology without getting lost in the details. We discuss the big picture but connect it to the day-to-day reality of the IT shop.
  • Available around the worldSee the event schedule for all the locations we’re offering the LZA SOA Boot Camp!

One person in every class wins a copy of The Agile Architecture Revolution!
