This 3-day instructor-led course is the foundation course for the IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender curriculum, and teaches students the fundamentals of WebSphere Transformation Extender V8.3.

IBM WebSphere Transformation Extender provides real-time transformation of complex data, including EDI X12, HIPAA, EDIFACT, and SWIFT. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on lab exercises, students learn how to use the WebSphere Transformation Extender Design Studio to define, transform, and route business objects and complex flat file data. Specific topics covered by the course include an overview of the WebSphere Transformation Extender product and its features, creating and deploying maps, and working with a resource registry. Hands-on exercises give students practical experience with skills such as optimizing maps, handling and logging errors, defining data, and indexing output.
