Enterprise Architecture Essentials

Enterprise Architecture Essentials – you’ll discover proven development methods to help you develop an IT architecture that meets the needs of your business.

During the last 20 years, organizations worldwide have spent billions of dollars and expended centuries of human effort on information technology (IT).

The results delivered by a majority of these IT projects are less than expected—and in many instances significantly less than needed.

This occurs in spite of the increased technical understanding of business managers, business process re-engineering or other organizational “fixes,” or implementation of the latest technology.

Enterprise architecture (EA) is defined as the organizational logic for business processes and IT infrastructure.

Enterprise architecture is a fundamental part of business planning, for small startups as well as for large, well-established corporations.

In this course, you will find a large body of knowledge compressed into digestible and compelling modules aimed toward practical use.

Designed for both existing and aspiring Enterprise Architects or for those that want to deepen their understanding of the discipline, the Enterprise Architecture Essentials course is an interactive learning experience to generate a deeper understanding of Enterprise Architecture concepts and techniques and how to apply them practically to effect successful business change.

The course delivers an interactive and dynamic learning experience by combining theory, practicals and working examples of enterprise architecture concepts and techniques.

The course content also includes thought-provoking discussions based on actual applications of enterprise architecture artifacts in a corporate context and how they have enabled business strategy.

Enterprise architecture is a crucial component of developing various types of business strategies.

This can range from creating compliance rules for employees within a company to developing rules and methods for dealing with customers and working with clients.

This course is officially accredited by The Open Group.
