Course Overview

Thousands of professionals of all backgrounds take in this course every year. The materials covered are based on Iasa’s IT Architecture Body of Knowledge (ITABoK). The ITABok is a public archive of IT Architecture best practices, skills and knowledge developed from the experience of individual and corporate members of Iasa, the world’s largest association of IT Architecture professionals.
From the lecture, participants learn to apply skills from the five pillars of ITABok, distinguish the concepts, principles, contexts, roles and scope of architecture, and recognize IT’s business values.
In as many as 22 action-packed classroom workshops, participants work in groups on real-world case studies and present their results for critique by the instructors and their peers; in the process learn the practical skills of setting up an Enterprise Architecture Office (EAO), selecting and prioritising IT projects, assigning resources, and creating values to stakeholders.
