Practical Avolution ABACUS
We use Avolution ABACUS every-day We take advantage of ABACUS' is rapid information capture and analytic support.
Our Avolution ABACUS Training is either delivered a custom course or our premiere Enterprise Architecture with TOGAF and Navigate class. Enterprise Architecture with TOGAF and Navigate courses focus on how to deliver enterprise architecture using ABACUS.
Custom Avolution ABACUS Training
Custom courses focus more on how-to and will align to using ABACUS (ABACUS Studio, ABACUS Enterprise, ABACUS Designer, ABACUS Simulator) or a specific problem like Roadmap development.
How to use ABACUS
Training focused on enterprise architects using ABACUS studio. Learn the mechanics of developing formal models and performing analysis.
How to configure and maintain ABACUS
Training focused on configuring your enterprise meta-model and content framework.
Learning to use Avolution ABACUS
We recommend learning to use ABACUS with practical exercises that reinforce lessons on the mechanics of ABACUS.

- Managing multiple states (Current, Candidate, and Target)
- Exploring potential change
- Visualizing your architecture
- 3-D Images
- Problem Statement & Stakeholders
- Identify the problem enterprise architecture must address
- Use superior architecture to govern your current work
- Capability-based Business Architecture
- Identify Gaps that must be filled in a Capability-improvement
- Information Systems Architecture
- Fill the Information-systems component of the capability gaps
- Risk & Security
- Identify and mitigate security & threats
- Remove uncertainty on reaching objectives
Learning to deliver architecture with Avolution ABACUS
We use a case study approach in Enterprise Architecture with TOGAF and Navigate. By exploring a case study students develop a solid target architecture and roadmap that address strategic and tactical requirements of a set of stakeholders.
We pre-populate an ABACUS project file. We energize our enterprise architecture development by using formal models and analytics to deeply understand the interactions between the components of the enterprise. Students use the formal models to analyze the case. Limited time is spent developing formal models.

Standard Case Study
In the standard case study we explore Architecture to support Project in the context of an architected portfolio and architected strategy. The student sees architecture governance in practice.
The case study can readily be adapted to develop the strategy or the portfolio.
