An Information System (IS) represents all the elements involved in the management, the processing, the transport and the dissemination of information within a given organization.



This module aims to familiarize the future architect with the components of an information system, to guide him in the realization of a system or a part of it.  At the end of this module, the student will be able to evaluate a system and will be able to make the right architectural, technical and application choices in order to improve it while guaranteeing the integration of heterogeneous technologies in one and the same information system.

In addition to the implementation of an IS, this module will allow to master the scripting in order to administer the systems. It will also enable us to understand the associated issues with the evolution of a data center through virtualization or Cloud Computing.



The teachings in this module allow to develop the following concepts and skills.


        Integration architecture

o   Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)

o   Web services

o   Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)

o   Enterprise Application Integration (EAI)

o   ETL

        Exchange and orchestration technologies:

o   Asynchronous messages (JMS)

o   Message Oriented Middleware (MOM)

o   Business Process Management (BPM)

o   Workflow

        Web Architecture

o   Layered model

o   Framework and application server (JEE, .Net)

o   Customer-oriented development

        Data layer in an SI:

o   Big Data, Data Warehouse, NoSQL, etc.

        Production and exploitation in an IS

        IS Security

        Technical architecture (physical)

o   Network Infrastructure

o   Components of a Data Center

        Cloud Computing Architecture

o   Saas, Paas, Iaas, etc.
