Who is this course for?

Business analysts, project managers, solution and software developers and anyone who requires an introduction to architecture frameworks. Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Intermediate covers the BCS (ISEB) Intermediate certificate in Enterprise and Solutions Architecture.

This certificate is a Knowledge-based module on the BCS Diploma in Solution Development.

About the course

On this course, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of enterprise, solutions and related architectures. Some of the topics that you’ll cover along the way include enterprise and solution architecture principles and frameworks, data and software architecture and infrastructure and applications architecture.

You’ll discover all you need to know when it comes to architecture terms and concepts, and you’ll use illustrative exercises to get to grips with the BCS reference model for Enterprise and Solutions Architecture.

Presented to you by one of the expert training consultants pictured below, each member of our Enterprise and Solutions Architecture training team bring their substantial analysis, design and development skills to the programme.

How is the course structured?

To give you more of an idea of what you’ll learn and how the course will help you, here’s a quick guide to those three days.

  • Introduction to enterprise and solution architecture
  • Architecture precursors
  • Architecture approaches
  • Business architecture
  • Data architecture
  • Applications architecture
  • Software architecture
  • Design for non-functional requirements
  • Infrastructure architecture

Architecture management (including migration planning)

Is there an exam?

Yes. During this three day course you’ll receive all the training you need to prepare for the hour long multiple choice BCS Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Intermediate certificate exam. A pass in this module will contribute to the BCS International Diploma in Solution Development.

Course manual

You’ll also be given a comprehensive Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Intermediate course manual, containing additional information and guidance on further reading.

What’s next?

If this course is part of your BCS Diploma in Solution Development you also need to gain the Core SD Diploma modules, Systems Modelling Techniques and Systems Development Essentials - and one Practitioner module from; Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Practitioner, Business Analysis Practice, Systems Design Techniques and Integrating Off-the-shelf Software Solutions.
