About this workshop:

  Based on the book, which you received during the "Fundamentals of EA" workshop:

An Introduction To Enterprise Architecture (Paperback)

Imagine yourself as a member of the enterprise architecture team of a large airline company. Airline companies are operating in a highly competitive and ever-changing market, with very demanding customers and strict regulations by governments, the FAA, etc.

This workshop will teach you how to apply enterprise architecture concepts through a class-wide architecture project that develops a web-based EA repository and integrated set of basic EA artifacts.

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, and technology.

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 pratical enterprise architecture workshop ?

  How to become a Certified Enterprise Architect ?

Register for the Fundamentals, Applied and Advanced EA 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 an attendance certificate issued by I.T. Works and EA Fellows.

About the Enterprise Architecture 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 EA Fellows 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.
