Course Price: £1,375.00 Language: English

This 4 day course is a subset of the 5 day IPCESA course (described in more detail link here). It spans the breath of architecture concepts from business through data and applications and software to infrastructure. It concludes on the 4th afternoon with examination for the BCS Intermediate-level professional certificate – a 60 minute exam comprising 40 multiple choice questions. However, it excludes the Practitioner case study, the Practitioner elements of the syllabus and the Practitioner examination, which the 5-day course does include.

After the course, attendees will understand many terms, concepts, processes and products used by enterprise and solution architects, understand what it means to apply architecture frameworks such as TOGAF and Zachman, and understand the place of modelling languages such as UML and ArchiMate. They will be able to fill the gap between high-level management frameworks and low-level software development lifecycles. The course includes class exercises and case study work.

Target Audience: Anybody wanting an introduction to enterprise or solution architecture. Enterprise and solution architects, their managers, strategic planners.
Approach: The course includes presentations and exercises. You may bring mobile devices, but must switch them off during presentations. Some papers will be provided, but most of the slides will be posted on the Avancier web site.

Topics: Architecture processes, products and techniques. Cross-organisational systems thinking.
