About this workshop:
|Based on the book, which you received during the "Fundamentals of EA" workshop:
Enterprise architecture is not a goal, but an essential instrument to improve communication, alignment and cooperation between business and IT. This workshop will show you that building an EA involves a lot of communication with business responsibles about e.g. strategy, mission and vision, ...; with domain and business experts about business initiatives, products and services; with business process experts about business operations; with HR about roles and responsibilities; with IT about systems, applications, networks, databases, etc; without forgetting cross-cutting experts in security, governance, business continuity, standardisation and innovation.
Building an EA is not a simple task and it obviously takes more than 4 days, but we will show you what is involved, the tips and tricks to do it better and faster, and how you can tackle some of the problems and caveats that you will undoubtably encounter. This practical workshop is the second part of the Certification Series to become a CMU/EA Fellows Certified Enterprise Architect.
Imagine yourself as a member of the enterprise architecture team of the large airline company of "Enterprise Airways" (EA). 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. After all, EA = S + B + T.

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.
This workshop is particularly useful for anyone who is involved in enterprise architecture.
This includes, but is not restricted to Business Managers, Program Managers, Technology Managers, Technical Staff.
This workshop is organised in cooperation with and EA Fellows. The number of participants is limited to 16 for maximum interaction and learning experience. During this workshop, free wifi Internet access will be available to our participants.
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 Chief Editor of the Journal of Enterprise Architecture, 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.
|Based on the book, which you should have read before this workshop:
This programme is spread over 4 days, from 10h00 till 18h00, with a lunch around 13h00. Our speaker, John Gøtze, will be present from 9h30 in case you have specific questions.
This course 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. This course is based on Scott Bernard's "An Introduction to Enterprise Architecture" book, which you should have read prior to attending this course.
The participants will develop a complete enterprise architecture in small groups and with professional guidance, for the airline company "Enterprise Airways" (EA). They will start with artifacts that will document/model strategic initiatives and measures; going through business requirements for processes and services; and rounding this off with 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.
