Learning objectives

Application management overview & positioning Learn where Application management fits in the Business/IT environment. Learn different application development methods and their appropriateness depending on the type of application.
Application development life cycle activities We use concepts from the first class and enrich that to create an end-to-end view up to deployment into production.
Application management governance, assurance, risk and audit A number of general concepts like governance, assurance, risk, quality and auditing are used to ensure applications deliver what the organisation needs and perform according to that need.
Application infrastructure foundations Applications run in private data centres and in the cloud. This module will present the basic technical infrastructure needed to host applications, as well as the concepts of abstraction through layering that are used to run application components.
Application architectures Students will learn about application patterns and architectures that allows separation of concerns in a structured way so that they are scalable, maintainable and performant.
Application development languages, platforms and patterns Students should get a high-level view of application development languages, the hierarchy, differences and similarities. Introduction to the main development platforms and used frameworks. Current evolutions, including mobile development.
Secure the application layer Understand how to assess, manage and control application security risks.
Putting the applications in production Once an application is ready for deployment into production it needs to be transferred to IT Operations through Change & Release Management. Once in production, applications need to be maintained and finally disposed of.
The module is concluded by an assessment (multiple choice questionnaire, short assignment, workshop, report writing and/or presentation before a panel jury) to validate its completion.
