Additional Information/Registration: Call +31 337630636, or e-mail us at Training@ringholm.com.

Keywords: IHE XDS/XDS-I/XCA/XCA-I advanced topics and troubleshooting best practices, hands on testing, XDS test tools.

Who Should Attend: This hands-on training course is aimed at those that manage, implement or test XDS/XCA or XDS-I/XCA-I based architectures.

What is covered: The primary goal of this training course is to provide the attendee with hands-on troubleshooting skills. In support of this the training course provides an in-depth discussion of a selection of advanced XDS topics. The focus will be on common data flow patterns of XDS-based infrastructures. The attendees will be asked to simulate all steps of these data flow patterns. As a secondary goal this training course aims to familiarise the participant with XDS testing/simulation tools so they can be used after the training course itself. This is a hands-on training course; at least 50% of the time will be spent on hands-on exercises.

Speakers: Your tutors will be Robert Breas and René Spronk and/or others, depending on location of the training course and the language used.

Learning goals: after this training course the attendees will be able to:

  • Troubleshoot common XDS/XDS-I/XCA issues
  • Use XDS/XDS-I/XCA simulation and validation tools
  • Support the (further) implementation of XDS/XDS-I/XCA
  • Create/set up policies for maintenance and provide support for XDS/XDS-I/XCA.
