DCE Training Services

Training at IAPS:

Advanced technical training has been the primary service of IAPS since our inception in 1977. We understand the "business" of training -- what works, as well as what doesn't. Most of our training programs are instructor led, on-site, and customized as needed. When we plan a training program for a client, we consider the potential role of mentoring, on-the-job training, media-based or computer assisted self study, or a combination of these training modes in addition to our instructor led courses. We assist our clients to optimize the overall cost and effectiveness of their training investment.

DCE Training:

IAPS has been involved with Distributed Computing Environment (DCE) training prior to the release of version 1.0. Our staff worked closely with DCE's developers at the Open Software Foundation and its technology contributors to create and license OSF's DCE Internals courses, and maintained other courseware under contract to OSF. We have trained thousands of software engineers and technical mangers worldwide on all facets of DCE including features and function, programming and systems development, cell design, administration, and internals.

DCE Courses and Hands-on Workshops:

Our standard training courses are listed below. They most often are coupled with our DCE consulting services and customized, based on organization-specific requirements including client and server platforms, application architecture and performance, security concerns, and application migration.

Now that DCE is a mature technology, our training and consulting typically involves the maintenance or migration of DCE legacy systems and applications. However, with the recent availability of open source licenses for DCE code, we anticipate our working with a growing number of system developers to implement DCE on newer platforms and evolve DCE to meet new enterprise computing requirements.

DCE Clients:

Training clients have included Bull, DEC, HP, IBM, MCI, Motorola, Gradient Technologies, The Open Software Foundation, TRW, Kaiser Permanente Northern California Region, the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club, The Singapore Ministry of Education, Citibank, Republic National Bank, Sybase, Freescale Semiconductor, and many more.
