Enterprise Architect Project GuideBook and Case Study

Enterprise Architect Quick Start

Hands-on training to deliver an agile Project using OMG UML© across the life cycle from Requirements, Analysis, Design, Implement to Testing

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

This intensive “hands-on” Workshop reveals the importance of developing UML modeling skills and productivity techniques. Work directly with a practice leader using the provided “Sparx Enterprise Architect Quick Start” study guide, and Case Study.

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

Experience hands-on UML modeling and learn how to use Enterprise Architect for your next project. Discover surprising ways to improve quality and save time under the watchful eye of practice leaders. Rapidly practice and learn a simple Agile approach called RADIT and practice modeling every OMG UML standard diagram. Learn where and why to apply each diagram.

  • Become practiced and confident in your use of Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect.
  • Produce complete UML models, learning how the various diagrams fit together, to describe a system at all levels from Requirements, Analysis, and Design to Deployment (RADIT)
  • Interpret and model Extended and UML diagram types, including graphical and textual elements
  • Learn which UML diagram to choose and to meet your specific modeling needs
  • Learn Extended UML for requirements, user interface, ER data modeling
  • Practice modeling re-use and traceability across the landscape from use case stories, requirements, object-oriented modeling, user interface and databases
  • Learn how the UML fits into the development process and architecture

Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect – Certificate of Achievement


Closing the Gap – Dr Dobbs Interview

“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

“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, Agile Software Delivery
