Minneapolis, MN

Metaplexity Associates, Inc. is offering a five-day workshop that prepares your team to use the TOGAF® standard to create enterprise architectures for your organization.  The workshop extends our 4 day Accredited TOGAF 9 Training Course with additional content that is designed to apply concepts and techniques from the TOGAF® standard.  The course provides an opportunity to take the TOGAF® 9 Certification Examination in class at the end of the course.

Instructors and materials incorporate in-class exercises and workshop activities throughout the course. The goal is to enable students to be able to better apply knowledge of the TOGAF® standard.

This is the classroom version of our flagship course, Enterprise Architecture Using TOGAF® 9.  This course was the first Accredited TOGAF 9 Training Course fully accredited by The Open Group in 2009.  The current curriculum, Version 3.5, was re-accredited in 2016.  It is up to date with all required changes through TOGAF 9.1.

COURSE DESCRIPTION Workshop

A more practical application of the TOGAF standard is provided by this workshop.  It addresses industry trends and challenges that are influencing how organizations are defining and implementing their enterprise architecture. The 5-day offering covers the key learning points required for both Level 1 and Level 2 TOGAF 9 certification.  It includes lectures, case studies, and individual and group activities.

Examples and exercises demonstrate the activities performed in the Architecture Development Method (ADM) phases.  The workshop activities are aimed at applying select artifacts and deliverables to enterprise architecture projects.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?Classroom Training

The workshop is designed for:

It will also be relevant to people in other disciplines who wish to play more informed roles in conducting or participating in enterprise architecture projects and initiatives. It is excellent for CTO’s and CIO’s as well, who want to learn not only what TOGAF is all about, but how application of the framework can impact business strategy, affecting both the top and bottom lines.

EXPECTED OUTCOMES

This course prepares the students for successful completion of the TOGAF 9 certification exams. However, the primary focus is to develop the ability to use the TOGAF standard to create effective enterprise architectures. Upon successful completion of this course the student will be able to:

Expected Outcomes

Upon completion of the 3-hour course, each student will receive a voucher that will enable them to take a 20-question, online, open-book assessment. If they achieve a score of 75% or better, they will earn the TOGAF® Essentials 2018 credential. The credential will be administered using the Pearson VUE Acclaim web-enabled digital badge.

The TOGAF® 9.2 release has expanded coverage of areas such as Business Architecture, that will enable the Enterprise Architect to create capabilities that support strategic business imperatives. It addresses many change requests that improve the content in technical and editorial ways. A major improvement is the separation of the core standard and guidance documentation. A new TOGAF® Library assembles several Open Group white papers and guidance documents. This curated set of documents will allow the TOGAF® standard to be responsive to emerging trends much faster than publishing a single volume.
