Essential TOGAF + ArchiMate 3 Applied™: Tool-Independent edition

COURSE ID: WS-FTOGE-ARCHI-TI
DESCRIPTION: This introductory TOGAF training workshop provides students with a solid foundation for applying Model-Based Engineering principles and best practices with the The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), the industry standard for specifying enterprise Information Technology (IT) architectures. This version of the TOGAF workshop uses the ArchiMate 2 as the architecture modeling language standard for specifying TOGAF-compliant enterprise architectures. No prior knowledge of ArchiMate 2 is required for this workshop.) The workshop teaches students how to solve practical problems using all TOGAF architecture layers (Business, Applications, Data, Technology) and UML 2 diagram types that are appropriate for each layer. Learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises.

This TOGAF workshop edition is tool-independent, and teaches the TOGAF + ArchiMate 2 modeling techniques using whiteboards for hands-on practice sessions, without using any tool-specific techniques. Students who seek integrated modeling tool training may also choose versions of this workshop that are customized for popular TOGAF-ArchiMate2 compliant modeling tools.
VENUE: Available Onsite or Online.
DURATION: 3-5 days (= 21-35 training hours; length depends upon optional learning modules selected)
AUDIENCE: Software Architects, Software Engineers, Software Developers, Business Analysts, Solution Architects, Systems Engineers, Project Managers, and others who want to learn how TOGAF and ArchiMate 2 can improve how they architect, analyze, design, and manage complex enterprise IT systems will benefit from this workshop.
PREREQUISITES: Software development or business analysis experience in building large and/or complex enterprise IT systems. No other experience or prior training is required.
COURSE AUTHOR & CHIEF INSTRUCTOR: Cris Kobryn is the Founder of PivotPoint Technology and is an internationally recognized expert in architecture modeling languages (UML, SysML, BPMN), enterprise architecture frameworks (DoDAF, UPDM, TOGAF), and Model-Based Engineering tools. Cris has been architecting and designing distributed computer systems for three decades, and is known for successfully leading the UML 1.x, UML 2.0, and SysML international standardization teams. Recently Cris designed the CyberML™ (Cyber Modeling Language™) to precisely specify Agile enterprise architectures that are scalable and cybersecure.
