Who is this course for?

Business analysts, project managers, solution and software developers and anyone who requires an understanding of architecture frameworks. Over 5 days Enterprise and Solutions Architecture covers the Intermediate and the Practitioner certificates in Enterprise and Solutions Architecture.

These certifications are Foundation and Practitioner modules on the BCS (ISEB) Diploma in Solution Development.

About the Course

This course is a combination of our Intermediate and Practitioner Enterprise and Solution Architecture modules. During the course, you’ll learn about architecture frameworks, software and data architectures, architecture management and migration planning, and much, much more.

What makes this course unique is that not only does it combine modules, but it combines theoretical with practical learning too, giving you the opportunity to try out the methods and techniques using a realistic case study. It also helps those with a TOGAF certificate to see how the framework can be applied in practice.

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 five 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
  • Migration planning
  • Architecture management
Is there an exam?

Yes. During this five day course you’ll receive all the training you need to prepare for the two one-hour, BCS Enterprise and Solutions Architecture Intermediate and Practitioner certificate exams. A pass in both exams means a certificate in both modules, and they both contribute to the BCS Professional Certifications portfolio and cover the specialist modules for the BCS International Diploma in Solution Development. The course is also consistent with SFIA skill ARCH level 6 and STPL level 5.

Anything else?

You’ll also be given a comprehensive Enterprise and Solutions Architecture course manual, which includes information on the BCS Reference Model and guidance on further reading.

What’s next?

If this course is part of your BCS Diploma in Solution Development you just need to gain the Core SD Diploma modules, Systems Modelling Techniques and Systems Development Essentials. The structure of the certification is shown here.
