Course Agenda

Session 1: Hardware, Virtualization and the Cloud

In this first session basic IT terminology and principles are explained. Almost all hardware is virtualized: hardware is assigned/used multiple times. You will learn about the impact of Virtualization on for example your IT costs and how it enabled a new IT business model: the Cloud. What are the advantages of Cloud computing? When NOT to choose for the Cloud?

Session 2: Internet and Encryption

In this session the basics of the internet are explained. The most popular applications being built today are web-based: accessible through a browser. You will learn what is needed to develop, install and manage your software.

By explaining in detail how a web application works you will learn the basics of networking as well as the infrastructure needed to offer a secure and resilient (high available) web application. As encryption (SSL/TLS) is vital for the security of the internet it is discussed extensively in this session.

Session 3: Application development and integration

The most popular programming languages are discussed, with special attention to Java©. The latest trends (for example Client-side development and Javascript) are discussed.

The implementation of new software in an existing environment (communication and data exchange with existing software) is critical for a successful implementation and determines to a large extend the IT costs involved (now and in the future). Is the software using standard communication (HTTP, messaging or file transfer)?

We will discuss the most important design decisions in software development. The advantages of using standards like WebServices (Web API’s and SOAP) and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) are explained.

Session 4: IT security, High Availability and Operational management

It is all about the data! What is the importance of the data for your business? The characteristics of the data (privacy sensitive?) determine what needs to be done to secure (backup) and protect your data: only the right people can read/change the data. Software is merely a tool to get to the data…

Viruses and threats are almost part of everyday life. The biggest threats are discussed: virusses, DDOS attacks, Man in the Middle attacks, Zero Day exploits, APT (Advanced Persistent Threat), OWASP top ten etc.

How do you determine which security measures are sufficient? Which tools do I have to use? What is High Availability? Do I need Disaster Recovery (second data center) and how does that work? Off course the answers to these questions have a high impact on your IT costs.

An important part of High Availability is operational management: how is monitoring implemented? How do you organize service management (incident and change mangement)?
