The Enterprise Architecture Basic Concepts course provides an overview of the theory and practice of Enterprise Architecture (EA), its roots in business and technology analysis and planning, the value and risk of implementing EA in an organization, the scope of EA programs, EA documentation methods, and the six basic elements that comprise a complete approach to practicing EA.
This course is taught over four days, with each day primarily consisting of lectures and working with a case study that runs throughout the curriculum. Examples of current EA practices and methods are also provided, including the foundational work of John Zachman and Steven Spewak, The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), the EA3 "Cube" Framework, and the Federal EA Framework (FEA).
This course is the first in a three-course series. Taught over four days, each day consists of morning lectures, discussions, and afternoon hands-on documentation workshops. Those who complete the Enterprise Architecture Applied Concepts course will receive a completion certificate. Those who complete all three courses in the series (Enterprise Architecture Basic Concepts (QB151), Enterprise Architecture Applied Concepts (QB156), and Enterprise Architecture Advanced Concepts (QB161)), and who successfully pass the in-class exams, will also receive the Certified Enterprise Architect (CEA) designation and certificate from the International Enterprise Architecture Institute.
