Scheduled training

Jumpstart your career as an iCore developer, or enhance your existing skills by attending one of our training programs. Join other participants for a couple of intense days of integration crunching under supervision by a seasoned iCore integration specialist.

You will develop new skills, get valuable insights, and hopefully have some fun along the way. Take the opportunity to engage with other students and learn from their experiences! We will provide you with the foundation you need to make the most out of your iCore investment and learn how to develop solutions that generate true business value.

We currently offer the following courses at our offices in Göteborg, Stockholm and London:

iCore Integration Designer (4 days)

The main purpose of the course is to teach you how to design and implement integration solutions based on the iCore integration methodology and the tools available in iCore Integration Suite (iCIS). You will start with a basic integration scenario and implement it in iCIS. Through a number of exercises, you will learn how to modify the solution as the scope expands and the business requirements change.

The course contains:

  • An introduction to iCore Integration Suite, iCore Administrator and the iCore integration methodology. Learn about the technical architecture of iCore Process Server — the "engine" running it all.
  • A review of basic concepts in iCIS, such as Component definitions and configurations, Events, and Nodes.
  • Comprehensive exercises – design and implement an integration solution using Adapterflows, Scripts, and ESB routing. Learn how to make use of the powerful track and trace features in iCIS, and how to use packaged functionality to save development time. Learn how to consume a Web service and set up iCore Invoke to trigger external events. Familiarize yourself with the iCore Web Administrator which lets you access your iCore systems through a browser.

The course is recommended for:

  • Administrators and operative staff
  • Developers
  • Systems Analysts
  • IT architects

iCore Developer (3 days)

Note: This course requires that you have attended the Integration Designer course. We also recommend that you have basic knowledge of XML, XML schemas and the Microsoft .Net framework.

The Developer course teaches you to create Scripts and Workflows that implement process flows tailored to your company's business requirements. For example, you will learn how to:

  • Create and execute a standard iCore Script.
  • Create a Script to parse the contents of an XML file, and write some of the contents to the iCore log.
  • Use the iCore Code Generation Tool to create a Script which can translate an XML file to an intermediate format.
  • Create a structure definition Script that can be used to parse flat files.
  • Enrich a message with data from various sources (Ex: a business partner or a product database)

The course is recommended for:

  • Developers
  • Systems Analysts
  • IT architects

iCore Advanced Developer (2 days)

Note: This course requires that you have attended the Integration Designer and Developer courses. Knowledge of XML, XML schemas and the Microsoft .Net framework are required as well as iCore Integration Suite v4.0.

The Advanced Developer course teaches you to create advanced integration logic built on Workflows and Web APIs. For example, you will learn how to:

  • Use the Workflow Designer tool to create and edit Workflows, as well as combining Workflow features with basic configuration, development and code generation.
  • Learn how to use Web APIs to quickly and easily set up integration flows towards the latest web platforms.
  • Use our recommended system setup and system naming conventions, including packages, service, authentication and database settings (iCore Implementation guidelines)
  • Import and export iCore entities.
  • Apply naming conventions for Script variables and objects, Nodes and Node filters.

The course is recommended for:

  • Developers
  • Systems analysts
  • IT architects

Administrator training (for Unit4 Integration Suite users)

This training is intended for Unit4 customers who use iCore Integration Suite to manage applications and processes. The goal of this three-hour, online training is to provide basic understanding for your integration solution from an administration and security perspective. In the first part, you will get an overall view of the solution on a "non-technical" level. In the second part, you will learn how to manage the solution in practice, as well as solving potential problems that may occur (e.g. interrupted integration flows).

The course also includes a course compendium that allows for in-depth studies.

The course is recommended for:

  • Business managers
  • Administrators and system/application/process owners
  • Users of Unit4 Business World (Agresso)
