will introduce the major design, implementation and
deployment issues regarding system integration, data-oriented
cross-platform integration, e-business applications
implementation and the security considerations in enterprise
level multi-location systems integration. Business Process
Management (BPM) is the set of concepts, methods, and
tools that help organizations define, implement, measure
and improve their end-to-end processes
course will introduce the concepts and techniques related
to the service-oriented as well as the data-oriented
application integration approaches. Reasonable emphasis
will be given for the middleware technologies and large-scale
application integration standards. The course will also
focus on the methods and techniques required to analyze,
design, implement, automate, and evaluate business processes
and workflows related to process-aware information systems.
