Training Modules Development and Delivery






This work package develops and delivers 4 training tracks. Tracks are developed by the European participants, TECNALIA, VTT, and UNIBO. The European participants also deliver the tracks to SECC so as to reinforce its cooperation capacity in embedded ubiquitous computing. The underlying 4 training tracks are:

    Track 1: Service Oriented Architecture/Enterprise Service Bus (SOA/ESB)
    Track 2: Semantic Web
    Track 3: Model Driven Development (MMD)
    Track 4: Ubiquitous Computing

SOA/ESB provides a more agile and comprehensive way to develop and integrate information systems and business processes than traditional integration approaches. It helps developing flexible architectures, integration of existing applications, speeding up custom applications development, and quickly responding to changing value-chain requirements.

Semantic Web is the next generation web where resources will be more accessible to automated processes. This is achieved by using an ontology which describes a formal specification of a certain domain and then encoding the data meaning using the defined ontology separately from the data itself. Using Semantic web for SOA instead of traditional web services allows for extending service description with machine interpretable information that software programs can reason over it.

MDD addresses one of the major challenges in today's complex business environment that is the delivery of a complete solution down to SOA IT realization from business architecture design. MDD is based on models and transformations. It enables modelling software at different levels of abstraction and to model it for traceability and accountability.

Ubiquitous computing offers high distribution and heterogeneity featuring enormous information exchange and increased dynamism as devices and middleware components join, leave, and change their status. As SOA and semantic web can be seen as a means of improving the interoperability between systems, they benefit ubiquitous computing from the higher degree of automation of many tasks that would otherwise require end-users' attention.

The tracks are carefully designed so as to establish a coherent, integrated framework with components that are interdependent and work together in complete synergy. The tracks are developed and delivered in sequence such that each one is largely a prerequisite to the next track. Development and delivery are intermingled to shorten time to dissemination and exploitation of RECOCAPE results done by the related tasks in WP6. Best practices are employed to develop the training materials that are verified and validated according to the deliverable verification and validation process specified by WP1. Peer and expert reviews are executed. Early validation is also executed through SECC staff feedback during development. Customer validation through imminent course delivery is also used in this work package to improve training materials.

The work package has 4 tasks with each task develops and delivers one of the 4 training tracks.
