This course introduces solution architects to IBM App Connect Enterprise. You learn how to use IBM App Connect Enterprise to develop, deploy, and support message flow applications. These applications use various messaging topologies to transport messages between service requesters and service providers, and allow the messages to be routed, transformed, and enriched during processing.

In this course, you learn the key features and uses for IBM App Connect Enterprise. You learn the architecture and components of IBM App Connect Enterprise and how it performs basic message processing. You learn the components of a message flow application and how to generate message flow applications from predefined patterns. You also create, test, and deploy a basic message flow application. The course is designed to provide an overview of the full capabilities of application development using IBM App Connect Enterprise 11 without going deeply through each feature.

This course is a subset of the 5-day course: IBM App Connect Enterprise V11 Application Development (WM668/ZM668). Developers who need in-depth training with App Connect Enterprise should take WM668/ZM668.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.
