XML state of Art Training
- Participants / Prerequisite
XML has become an irreplaceable standard to exchange data over the Web. Strongly used in the industry of IT's, it's now one of the main components of Web applications, information systems, data integration, e-commerce (mainly B2B)... Through its many languages, XML can be used to define data structures and check data validity, to transform data and to expose it using different data formats (XML, CSV, SOAP). XML is also strongly used in services oriented architectures. This seminar gives you an XML overview so that you could better appreciate its use in your own information systems and web applications.
He is a Professor of Information Technologies for both professionals and students. He has provided his knowledge for more than 18 years in many organizations such as Paris Dauphine University. He was project manager and database administrator in several services companies working for large groups such as Banque Populaire, BNP or CL where he acquired a good knowledge of various business problems, especially those managing huge quantities of data.
