Sign up for the JBI Training newsletter to stay updated with world-class technology training opportunities, including Analytics, AI, ML, DevOps, Web, Backend and Security. Our Power BI Training Course is especially popular.  Gain new skills, useful tips, and validate your expertise with an industry-leading organisation, all tailored to your schedule and learning preferences.

Our Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) training course will detail an architectural concept which defines the use of services to meet the requirements of software users. An SOA environment will consist of nodes on a network which make resources available to other participants in the network as independent services (for instance Web Service) which are accessed in a standardised way. With so many "SOA badged" tools available it can be hard to know where to start looking, or even to know what you should be looking for.
