TOGAF© Architecture Development Method for Teams

TOGAF Architecture Development for Teams

Duration: 3 days – Expert led Virtual Learning led by TOGAF Certified Mentor.

The purpose of an Enterprise Architecture capability is to produce business value, reduce risk, and to manage the people, process, and technology elements of an organization. All elements need to be clearly understood and available in an architecture repository containing knowledge and modes model which can then be used to evaluate as built models, model changes, and determine impacts over time.

The advantages that result from a good enterprise architecture practice bring important business benefits, which are clearly visible in the net profit or loss of a company or organization.

This course is for new and experienced Architects who are interested in learning more about TOGAF® using a pragmatic hands-on approach by modeling the Architecture Development Method using a hands-on case study. Learn to leverage a Enterprise Architect to save limited resources by practicing time saving modeling techniques and leverage patterns provided by key books of knowledge like TOGAF®, BIZBOK®, BABOK®, ITABOK®, ITSM®, and PMBOK®.

Testimonial: "I attended the Open Group TOGAF® Certification Course and failed the exam. The course was very academic and not very practical. I was lost until I took this hands-on course from INTEGRATE IT. I learned by doing and now I can apply the TOGAF® to our fast-paced real-world consulting practice. After I attended Enterprise Architect for Architecture Teams, I passed the TOGAF® exam with ease because I learned how to apply the academic theory. A great side effect is I also learned to master Enterprise to power my practice." – KPMG Consultant

"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

"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, IT Strategy, Dollar Tree

"The Toolkits provided by INTEGRATE iT during the course saved our Fortune 10 Healthcare company many months of standards work and setup time, we began our critical project immediately after training. There isn’t a week that goes by when I’m not using one of the productivity tools to help solve problems, speed things or make my team more productive." - Fiona Lindberg, Business Architect – McKesson Health Systems
