What is Anypoint Platform Architecture: Application Networks training about?

An application network connects applications, data, and devices within an enterprise and to external ecosystems using APIs. This instructor-led course teaches experienced enterprise and solution architects how to direct the emergence of an effective application network out of individual integration solutions following API-led connectivity across an organization. It is case-study driven, with the solution architecture and effect on the organization's enterprise architecture for two strategic change initiatives being documented as the course progresses.

What are the objectives of Anypoint Platform Architecture: Application Networks training?

At the end of this course, students should be able to:

  • Break down functional requirements into business-aligned, versioned APIs with effective granularity and API data model.
  • Direct creation and publication of API-related assets using RAML and Anypoint Platform components.
  • Architect for non-functional requirements on the level of API invocations and API implementations using components of Anypoint Platform.
  • Architect for specific requirements by augmenting API-led connectivity with Event-Driven Architecture.
  • Select Anypoint Platform deployment options.
  • Advise on effective use of the automation capabilities of Anypoint Platform for DevOps, CI/CD, and testing.
  • Advise on the establishment and operation of a Center for Enablement (C4E).
