- Work with API Manager in order to administer API Management suite
An API management is all about assembling, publishing, deploying, and governing application programming interfaces in a secure, scalable environment. This course focuses on understanding IBM API management suite and focuses on both administration and development aspects of it. The course will walk you through several concepts that are helpful in practice and aligns with IBM API product management certifications. You can attempt the certification after doing this.
It consists of two parts
The instructor will walk you through the various scenarios mentioned in hands on exercises or practical sections after which you can execute them at your leisurei. We will start with basics but will quickly move to real world problems (such as dealing with REST, SOAP services etc.)
The lab environment will be installed partially on learner’s laptop. However to work on real world scenarios a subscription of IBM® Bluemix is required. You can get 30 day trial of this cloud for free. Please see a list of exercises at the end of this document that will be part of lab.
Delivery timeline for overall course is 20 to 25 hours [in average situations]. All hands-on exercises will be demonstrated by instructor first and you will have your own time to preform your hands on.
- The course is built around IBM APIC product suite version 5.0.x
