Delivering Effective and Consistent Practices – Delivering Results

In Business Abstraction we believe that our training should provide visible, immediate value.

Not all projects that use Visual Modelling will succeed, or will flow smoother, more effective, with higher visibility and control, than prior projects that didn’t utilise Visual Modelling. To be effective, the team should develop effective and consistent practices, and often expect to spend years developing that.

Business Abstraction addressed that by developing training that delivers established practices rather than initial knowledge. To achieve that, the training is conducted by an experience practitioner who combines training with practical consulting and project work. The training materials are customised according to the client’s needs prior to beginning of the training. The training is then conducted using client’s real projects and problems as examples. Through the training, the trainer will identify, discuss and refine the practices that the team will adopt, and drives the training accordingly. By the end of the training, the specific modelling practices of the team are documented and supported by several examples, and have been repeatedly followed though the practical exercises.


The following are the guidelines and Best Practices that Business Abstraction identified through over 15 years of practice

Training for Business Architects and Business Analysts

Business Abstraction proved first in 2004 that Business Analysts can produced good models when trained right. Since then, we continue to offer highly engaging training specially customised for non-programmers, including new topics as they emerge.

Sparx Enterprise Architect for SOA

Sparx Enterprise Architect is a magnificently flexible tool that allows an experienced modeller to model practically anything, in a way this particular modeller finds appropriate. The same flexibility can confuse IT professionals less experienced in Visual Modelling and SOA. Business Abstraction can adapt provide very specific guidelines and additional functionality to use Enterprise Architect for defining and implementing SOA.

Abstraction Methodology

Abstraction Methodology is a Model-based method of driving software-centered Projects, Programs and Enterprise IT. With the exception of writing actual software code and running manual tests, the work is performed by producing, discussing and investigating interconnected Models. On the top level we separate Modelling Space into several Views.

Training for Solution Architects and Developers

Visual Modelling with UML and other modelling notations is a mature approach well past the "hype of inflated expectations" it was experiencing in early 2000s. It is firmly placed in the "plateau of productivity", and the productivity we shall deliver. Business Abstraction offers the range of training courses that deliver fundamental understanding, practical skills and immediate visible impact on productivity, clarity and manageability of software-intensive projects.
