E-Information Systems, Architectures Training
- Participants / Prerequisite
This seminar explains the concepts and standards of the new technical / functional architectures, how they have evolved and matured. It presents an overview of the 3rd revolution in information systems, based on the idea of "services". Case studies based on large and significant projects, will show you how these technologies and platforms have been implemented.
- The different types of architecture: 1-tier, 2-tier, 3-tier, n-tier.
- The client, application servers, connected mode and disconnected mode, the main notions: context, transaction, middleware, components and objects.
- Dividing architectures into five layers.
- Overview of the components of JEE architecture: JSP, Servlets, EJB, JMS, Grails ...
- Additional specifications (portlets and content management). The main JEE architecture types.
- Overview of the components of .NET architecture: WebForms, WinForms, Enterprise Services and MSMQ. Comparison with JEE.
- The PHP platform. The Open Source JEE offer with Geronimo,JBoss, ObjectWeb...
- Benefits and risks.
- Ajax technology and its consequences for Web applications.
- Web 2.0: definition, impact on applications and user requests.
- Changes to graphical interfaces, the new possibilities offered by the rich client.

- What is urbanism? Mapping the existing elements. Defining the target IS.
- Who are the players in an urbanism project? What is the time scale?
- What are the deliverables? What is the control structure? Which approach should you adopt? Analyses: maturity, integrations, costs and risks. Case studies.
- Impact analyses: the cultural transition for the company and the ISD, the learning curve for the teams, organisation in relation to internal and external skills, project management.
- Enterprise Application Integration: EAI. Principles. Why are integration problems more concerned with organisational and functional issues than technical ones? An EAI architecture (ETL, workflow, BPM, messaging, connectors, etc.). "Traditional" integration application interfaces: CORBA/IIOP, EJB/RMI, DCOM, XML-RPC and JCA.

- Description of the complete chain: from collecting data in the operational systems through to its presentation in decision-making applications, including the processes supplying and storing data in the analysis repository.
- Making information exchanges secure: authentication, authorisation, integrity, confidentiality, non-repudiation and legal aspects. Why has application security become as important as infrastructure security? The security infrastructure for service-oriented architectures.
