Enterprise Architect Solution Delivery Handbook provided

Enterprise Architect for Team Players

Practice how to develop and deliver an Agile Solution Delivery Project with the entire team

Course Syllabus for 4 day – expert led hands-on training

Experience hands-on modeling and learn how to use Enterprise Architect with your next project. Discover surprising ways to improve quality and save time under the watchful eye of consultant practice leaders.

This intensive “hands-on” Workshop reveals the importance of disciplining Agile Teams of project managers, business analysts, solution architects, software architects. and QA testers to master skills and productivity techniques across the delivery life cycle.

Successful business and software requirements management integrated with software engineering delivery, cuts to the very core of managing business expectations, delivering quality business and software application solutions.

Objectives

  • Experience a full life-cycle tool going from Business modeling, Requirements, Analysis, Design, Implement to Testing
  • Practice developing the Business Requirements Definition (BRD) using Sparx EA to generate documentation
  • Practice developing the Software Requirements Specification (SRS) using Sparx EA to generate documentation
  • Practice effective Requirements Elaboration and re-use across the full life cycle for traceable Requirements Management. Conduct the Requirements Phase of the Agile UP using the International Institute of Business Analysts BABOK 3 Framework techniques
  • Practice object orient solutions analysis by developing interface, business and data objects based upon well written use case stories to using the Construction (Analysis) phase of the Agile UP – sequence diagrams, user interfaces and physical data modeling
  • Practice re-use and full life-cycle fully traceable systems through OO Design and Code generatoiom
  • Apply Software Design Patterns and learn Design trade-offs
  • Practice Advanced Sparx EA Techniques for saving time while increasing quality

Testimonials

Acceleration without sacrificing quality – Health Care Reform using Sparx Enterprise Architect

Closing the Gap – Dr Dobbs Interview featuring Ramsay Millar

“Even though Enterprise Architect is an extremely powerful tool and more feature rich than all the competing products we have reviewed in our RFP, it is hard to apply it without proper mentorship and an agile unified process that unfolds a step by step example of doing a project.” – Marc Ginns, Chief Enterprise Architect, Duke Energy, Charlotte, NC

“I’ve been able to impose a new level of discipline on to align business and IT – we’ve eliminated the ‘weak link’ by creating a common business language(UML) between the business people coming in with requirements and the architects who are designing the new systems. The methods and techniques revealed are a breath of fresh air when I compare them to their predecessors – that performed like a herd of elephants.” – Director of Strategic Planning, Major US based Retailer

“It has been nearly impossible to figure out how to use Enterprise Architect to manage a real project. INTEGRATE iT involved the entire project team and we are saving time and producing quality requirements within one week” – Director, Software Delivery
