Introduction to Enterprise Architectures

Architecting the Enterprise (Business and System) using Strategic Modeling, TOGAF, Zachman, BPM, BMM and UML

Introduction to Entreprise Architectures ( 2 days)

Objective  : This training course aims at helping attendees to understand the most used Enterprise Architectures and rules to follow up in their construction to succeed with an appropriate architecture scenario for their organisation.

Thanks to the selection of appropriate architecture layers, components and traceability links that are to be established from the business layer to the technical layer, the resulting enterprise architecture framework allows you with a good impact analysis in face of evolutions of the business decisions and anticipate mutations of the corresponding information system components.

Presentation on a case study


Notice : The above training-mentoring sessions are conducted interactively using Business Modeling tools in order to ensure good level of traceability between business specifications and their execution. Concepts are first explained using basic examples and are then followed by solution drafts to your own problems. After this session, we can accompany you by reviewing and validating your solutions depending on your needs.
