Best practices to develop EA artifacts in a manner that links strategy, business and technology
This event is history, please check out our future events !
About this workshop:
This workshop builds upon knowledge and skills learned in the Fundamentals of Enterprise Architecture course by focusing on how to apply those concepts
through a class-wide architecture project that develops a web-based EA repository
and integrated set of basic EA artifacts using an EA tool.
These artifacts will document/model strategic initiatives and measures; business
requirements for processes and services; and supporting technology solutions
including information systems, applications, databases, websites, networks,
security, and standards. The course will also cover best practices to develop
EA artifacts in a manner that promotes linkage between the strategic, business,
It contains the following parts:
- Day 1: Strategy and Scoping Day. Introduction to the course and the case study that will be used throughout the workshop. Architectural Drivers and Overall Principles. How to build strategy artifacts. Exercises on Implementation, Requirements and Scope. How to build high-level (from a business perspective) artifacts. (this is a very intensive day, hope you are well-prepared and have had enough sleep)
- Day 2: Classification Day. Defining the enterprise: mappings of frameworks and architectures. How to build business-data-systems artifacts.
- Day 3: Blueprinting Day. Current and future architectures. Future architecture drivers. Segment prioritization. Reviewing detailed artifacts.
- Day 4: Actionable Transformation Day. Stakeholder requirements. Livable architecture. Sequencing plan. Consolidated principles.
Why should you attend this workshop ?
Following this workshop, participants will be better prepared to participate in and add value at an intermediate
level in EA projects in private and public sector organizations, including documentation,
modeling, archiving, tool use, and task accomplishment. This will result in
improved EA program success, higher quality EA products, improved communication
with EA program stakeholders, and increased EA value delivery.
At the end of the 4-day "Applied Enterprise Architecture Concepts" workshop, participants will receive a Dual Course Completion Certificate issued by Telelogic and CMU.
Who should attend this workshop ?

About the Certification Programme
Are you looking to expand your knowledge of Enterprise Architecture (EA) ? Are you trying to control business and technology development projects ? But you don't know for sure if your line-of-business applications support your business goals ? Do you need to learn EA best practices, so that you can maximize the benefits of EA for your organization ?
If so, then the new Enterprise Architecture Certification Program, offered by Telelogic and by Carnegie Mellon University's Institute for Software Research International (ISRI), one of the world's leading IT education and research centers, and organised by I.T. Works in Belgium, is the program for you. "It is an honour and a pleasure to launch the EA-certification programme developed by Carnegie Mellon University here in Europe. Over the past several years, the demand for EA-competencies in Europe has increased tremendously, and it is time to roll out professional certification here now", says Dr. John Gøtze, the International President of the Association of Enterprise Architects, and instructor of the certification courses.
This Enterprise Architecture certification program will give you the knowledge
and skills you need to successfully implement an EA initiative in the public
or private sector. You will learn EA concepts, best practices, and tools from
experienced Carnegie Mellon certified instructors. The Certification Program
is built from three intensive courses which provide a comprehensive development
program for Enterprise Architects: the "Fundamentals
of Enterprise Architecture" course, this "Applied Enterprise Architecture" course and the "Advanced Enterprise Architecture". You will attain "Certified Enterprise Architect" status
after passing three intensive exams for each of these courses.
