Businesses today are critically interested in integrating applications and data to improve revenue, increase efficiency and provide competitive advantage.  Cloud services have provided an exciting new tool which IT managers can use for this purpose.  This course looks at principles and practices around using SaaS, IaaS and PaaS cloud technologies to integrate applications and business processes.  Web APIs will be covered, along with data exchange formats such as JSON and XML.  High level architectures will be illustrated covering cloud-cloud integration and cloud to core integration.  Students will also learn how to manage key cloud integration metrics such as security, stability and cost.  The course will look at commercial cloud integration frameworks, such as Boomi, CastIron, MuleSoft and TIBCO CloudBus, as well as business applications such as Amazon, Uber and Paypal.  Students will create their own integrated cloud application using commercially based services, and demonstrate to the class.
