Enterprise Architect TOGAF ADM Project Guide and Case Study

Enterprise Architect for TOGAF© Practitioners

Hands-on training to deliver a Project using the TOGAF© Architecture Development Method

Course Syllabus for 3 days – Expert led Enterprise Architect hands-on training

“An Architect, in the subtlest application of the word, describes one able to engage and arrange all elements of an environment to create a harmonious whole” – Charles T. Betz

The purpose of an Enterprise Architecture capability is to produce business value and to identify and manage the people, process, and technology elements of an organization. All elements need to be clearly understood and available in an interactive model which can then be used to evaluate existing operations and manage change over time. The advantages that result from a good enterprise architecture bring important business benefits, which are clearly visible in the net profit or loss of a company or organization.

This mission tested course integrates and harmonizes industry standard frameworks and reveals how to develop you Enterprise Architecture capability using TOGAF, BIZBOK, BABOK, COBIT, ITIL, and PMBOK to leverage all stakeholders using a provided and fully traceable Architecture Repository ready for production.

Objectives

As a comprehensive, open method for Enterprise Architecture, TOGAF 9 compliments, and can be used in conjunction with, other frameworks that are more focused on specific aspects of architecture for vertical sectors such as Government, Defense, Finance, Insurance, Healthcare, Retail and many others.

A comprehensive mission tested course that pragmatically reveals how to perform Architecture modeling and reporting using a role based approach. Follow one project through the ADM and Architecture life cycle to learn how advanced Architects do it. The course is for Architects who are interested in learning more about TOGAF 9 using a pragmatic hands-on approach by modeling TOGAF 9 Architecture Development Method, standards and best practices using a comprehensive case study.

TOGAF Certified Architects who wish to evaluate and apply the TOGAF 9 Architecture Development Method standards and best practices using a comprehensive case study and to experience immediate benefits of using a powerful modeling tool Enterprise Architect.

Our role based hands-on course use Enterprise Architect to address the work needs and requirements of the following roles and follows the Architecture Development Method through your first practical Iteration. Practice Advanced Sparx EA Techniques for saving time while increasing quality.

Testimonials

“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 a process that unfolds a step by step example of doing a project.” – Marc Ginns, Chief Enterprise Architect, Duke Energy, Charlotte, NC

“We recently completed a production business transformation, and the clarity provided by the very first Enterprise Architect TOGAF 9 course, led by Ramsay, to focus on learning and applying Enterprise Architect to the practice of using the TOGAF ADM saved ten Enterprise Architects at our Fortune 15 energy company many months in start- up when using new tools and process, a saving far greater than Enterprise Architect software license costs and the entire cost of training & retooling.” – Chief Architect, Fortune 15 Energy Sector Company

“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
