By exploring a case study, the course helps students develop a solid target architecture and roadmap that address strategic and tactical requirements of a set of stakeholders. Conexiam’s Navigate is energized by Avolution’s ABACUS. Conexiam’s Navigate is used to provide a consistent, comprehensive toolkit; all relevant elements are included within a pre-populated ABACUS model. In this course, we energize our enterprise architecture activity by using formal models and analytics to deeply understand the interactions between the components of the enterprise.
Our case study is provided in a populated set of formal models. The student will use the formal models to analyze the case; we will not be creating formal models.
TOGAF 9.1 is used to serve and support our activity. When it comes to producing detailed work products, we use Conexiam's Navigate toolkit. The Navigate toolkit is a straightforward customization of TOGAF. It provides a complete set of tools that fleshes out the generic elements of TOGAF 9.1. With Navigate, EA practitioners can perform three key functions:
In order to maximize the capability of an enterprise architecture team, formal modeling and analysis of facts is required. Conexiam’s enterprise architecture team uses Avolution’s ABACUS as a standard enterprise architecture modeling and analysis tool.
In this 3-day course, you will learn practical techniques and tools in Navigate. ABACUS is used to highlight the power of analytics in understanding the interactions between the components of the enterprise.
This course makes extensive use of case study to create actual enterprise architecture deliverables, culminating in a target architecture and architecture roadmap. You will learn how these deliverables are consumed as case progresses, and how to use Navigate to build key capabilities and trace architecture decisions.
Conexiam will license the Navigate tools used in the course to those who take the "EA with TOGAF & Navigate using ABACUS" course. During the course, each student will have access to a copy of Avolution’s ABACUS.
