Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend

This four day workshop, based on the Zachman Framework V3.0, incorporates actual modelling experience. The modelling workshop is based on actual Enterprise experience and is designed to give delegates hands-on experience creating both “Primitive” (architecture) models as well as “Composite” (implementation) models. The workshop will prepare delegates for both levels of the Zachman Certified – Enterprise Architect program.

Enterprise Architecture is fundamental for enabling an enterprise to assimilate internal changes in response to the external dynamics and uncertainties of the information age environment. It not only constitutes a baseline for managing change, but also provides the mechanism by which the reality of the enterprise and its systems can be aligned with management intentions.

This newly revised four day seminar and workshop, based on the recently released Zachman Framework V3.0, for the first time incorporates actual modelling experience.  The modelling workshop is based on actual Enterprise experience and is designed to give the participants hands-on experience creating both “Primitive” (architecture) models as well as “Composite” (implementation) models.

The seminar and workshop will prepare delegates for both levels of the Zachman Certified- Enterprise Architect program: Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level1) and Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Professional (Level 2).

The certification fee (both Level 1 & Level 2) is included in the registration fee.  The “Zachman Certified – Enterprise Architect” examination is a two hour, on-line examination that upon passing, results in the award of Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) Certification.  Delegates will then subsequently be awarded the Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 2) Certification upon submitting a case study.

This is a very exclusive certification program. If you want to understand the “Complexity & Contradiction” in Enterprise Architecture and are struggling to manage a non-adaptive enterprise and dysfunctional systems, this will be an important experience!

Learning Objectives

The objective of this 4-day workshop is to build an understanding of the concepts of Enterprise Architecture and develop a sense of urgency for implementing those concepts in a modern enterprise. The course gives today’s Enterprise Architects the opportunity to strengthen their skills as well as broaden their understanding of industry trends and the use of The Zachman Framework™.  It is designed to teach the science of Enterprise Architecture – what relevant things exist in the Enterprise and what must be considered in its creation and change, about the Enterprise ontology, and foundation to equip Enterprise Architects to make their own methodological choices.

  • A sense of urgency for aggressively pursuing Enterprise Architecture
  • A comprehensive definition (description) of Enterprise Architecture
  • Differentiation of Enterprise Architecture from Systems Implementation
  • Creating Enterprise Strategy Models which form the basis for Enterprise Architecture
  • Differentiation of Ontology from Methodology
  • Utilizing Enterprise Architecture for operational decision making
  • A strategy for reducing “time-to-market” for systems implementations to virtually zero
  • Strategy for integration beyond jurisdiction (Interoperability)
  • Architectural Principles for meeting enterprise requirements
  • Ensuring traceability across the artifacts for impact analysis and change management
  • BPM, SOA, BI, MDA, ITIL, etc. in the context of the Zachman Framework
  • Row by row modelling of the Zachman Framework inside the tool
  • Case study decision making and model analysis inside the tool

    Course Outline

    Setting the Context for Enterprise Architecture (EA)

    • Contribution of IT People to an Information Age Enterprise
    • Global Environment: Escalating Complexity and Escalating Change
    • Applying the Concept of Mass-Customization to the Enterprise

    Introduction to Enterprise Architecture (The Zachman Framework V3.0)

    The Zachman Framework is perhaps the most referenced in the industry.  This session provides participants with a unique opportunity to learn first-hand about its concept and utility, directly from the man who developed it. The just released V3.0 will be discussed.

    • Definition of Enterprise Architecture
    • The Zachman Framework – Architecture Is Architecture Is Architecture
    • Ontogies Versus Methodologies

    Workshop:  What’s Wrong with My Architecture?

    Workshop:  Creating Enterprise Strategy Models Using Row 1 Primitives

    Case Study:  Creating Composite Strategy Models Using Business
    Motivation (BMM) and Balanced Scorecard

    Enterprise Engineering

    • Models from My Bookshelf – 75 years of experience (Implementation, Composite Models)
    • The Elegance of Primitives (Their essential contribution)
    • Enterprise Entropy – Removing Internal Cost of Operations
    • Enterprise Engineering Design Objectives
       Alignment, Integration, Reusability, Flexibility, Interoperability
    • Reducing Cycle Time from Order to Implementations (Mass-Customization)

    Workshop: Deconstruct Business Process Model (BPMN) using Framework Principles

    Case Study:  Creating Multiple Target Models

    Case Study:  Component Modelling Using UML 2.0 for Business Domain

    Implementation Practicalities

    • Migrating from Legacy to Architecture

    Workshop:  Using Primitives to create horizontal Integration and Vertical Transformation

    Case Study:  Application Rationalization Using Primitives

    Workshop:  Creating Metrics and the Necessary Enterprise Models for Meeting Enterprise Goals

    Workshop:  Identify Framework Cells for Given Enterprise Problem Definitions

    Strategies for Constraining the Modelling to Fit the Time Constraints

    Mock Test:  Preparation for the On-Line Certification Examination


    Who It's For 

    The seminar is designed for enterprise professionals of every discipline including non-information disciplines as well as information disciplines. Although it is addressing technology issues, it is not a "technical" seminar. It addresses the subjects that both enterprise professionals and information professionals must understand to operate effectively in collaboration in the Information Age environment.

    Further, the seminar is appropriate for both management and non-management professionals. For management it clarifies the issues for decision purposes and enables more meaningful dialogue with and among the technology community. For operations professionals, it establishes the context for developing improved approaches and implementation strategies.

    Typical delegates include:
    • CIOs
    • Enterprise Architects
    • Chief Architects
    • Business Architects
    • IT Architects
    • Process Architects
    • Application Architects
    • Solution Architects
    • Software Architects
    • Technology Architects
    • Data Architects
    • Business Analysts
    • System Analysts
    • IT Strategists
    • Business Strategists
    • Strategic Planners
    • Program Managers
    • Information Systems Management
    • Business Process Managers
    • Data, Applications, Technology Management
    • Consultants
    • Domain / Business knowledge.
    • Experience in running and managing a department or business unit.
    • Ability to map the domain specific language (terminology) to the architecture specific language.
    • Architecture specification principles such as abstraction, refinement, composition, modelling, etc.
    • Experience in creating models (free hand or using a tool like MS Office or UML/BPMN).
