This is one of three courses covering the BCS Certificates for Enterprise and Solution Architecture. It concentrates on providing an understanding of the critical architecture terms and concepts. It enables delegates to view their enterprise and solutions architecture in a more structured way and understand the role more deeply. The scope also encompasses the traditional architecture domains - business, applications, data and infrastructure.
The main objectives of the course are to gain an informed perspective on this dynamic and complex subject, and to prepare for the exam associated with BCS Intermediate Certificate in Enterprise and Solution Architecture. To this end a mixture of approaches are used:
Instructor lead sessions and exercises, which follow the timings laid down in the syllabus. At the end of each session mock exam questions are set and reviewed.
A revision system which can help delegates do focused study in their own time, followed by a group review.
An exam is sat at the end of the course.
At the end of this course you will be able to understand the key terms and concepts of enterprise and solution architecture, including:
The main roles and goals of architecture
An explanation of both Enterprise and Solution architecture
