Course Description

Most people either try to follow an entire architectural framework, or don’t brother at all… this is a big lost opportunity. This two day course will save you making the mistakes of others, and in 90% of cases will save you money within days of your return back to the office.

We cover TOGAF based architecture without the red tape, no excessive process here! Get the benefits and not the pain. Introduced in a staged way, based on organization maturity.

While Iterative not big bang is normally the best approach, we cover ten things you can do day one, and we focus on companies of 10 - 500 people (most courses assume you will be in a much bigger organization which matters when your come to practically implement).

Guideline documents will be provided, which you can use as part of your toolbox.
