This course is also available as self-paced virtual (e-learning) course IBM App Connect Enterprise V11 Application Development (ZM668G). This option does not require any travel.
IBM App Connect Enterprise provides connectivity and universal data transformation in heterogeneous IT environments. It enables businesses of any size to eliminate point-to-point connections and batch processing, regardless of operating system, protocol, and data format.
This course teaches you 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 how to construct applications to transport and transform data. The course explores how to control the flow of data by using various processing nodes, and how to use databases and maps to transform and enrich data during processing. You also learn how to construct data models by using the Data Format Description Language (DFDL).

I liked the pace of the course. I like that I have more than instance to use the lab.
Great instructor, clear and concise course. Labs were easy to follow and worked perfectly.
ExitCertified was a great. They gave me all the materials and information I needed ahead of time to prepare for the course.
Fantastic and great training. Tons of hands-on labs to really make you understand the material being thought.
Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.
