About the training

Enterprise architecture ties a company‘s IT architecture to its business processes. The approach doesn‘t involve just snapshots, but fundamentals for implementing strategic planning. This course will show you how to analyze and model this combination. Enterprise architecture thus turns into a basis for planning a company‘s IT architecture, and is based on the company‘s actual and strategic business process requirements.


You‘ll learn how to apply enterprise architecture methods in practice. You‘ll become acquainted with TOGAF® and Zachman® Framework as well as the corresponding tools and how to apply them.
