IT governance provides a thorough management process for IT activities. All aspects of IT, starting from strategy to execution, are closely managed and continuously improved. SOA adds new challenges and hence IT governance processes need to be extended.
This course builds a foundation by covering IT governance. Many organizations may not have IT governance put in place. This foundation will be especially beneficial to them. The course builds on this foundation by covering SOA governance.
The course offers practical knowledge of how to actually implement IT and SOA governance in an organization. We have designed the course in such a way that the students will be able to get started with instituting a governance practice from scratch.
