Course Aim

After the course, students will be able to

  • Implement methods in Enterprise Architecture (EA) for the design of services
  • Develop a service architecture based on platform-independent reusable Web services
  • Perform a security classification of information as a basis for design of service-based security architecture


The course deals with the Enterprise Architecture (EA) to identify the relationship between information systems and between information systems and actors within the organization. An important aspect of this process is to ensure information integrity in the design of secure e-services based on a service-oriented architecture in which key components of this process is process modelling, architecture description, information classification as the basis for selection of information security.

During the course the student works with individual tasks and group work. The tasks are solved by using the course literature or papers. The student uses different methods and techniques and it is important to choose the right method, technique or computer support for each task. Before and after the tasks are solved there are lectures to present and discuss different solutions. Teaching is in English and on Internet for distance students or at campus for the students living here. IT support: Learning management system (Fronter), e-mail and phone.
