Training for Enterprise and SOA Architects

We developed the range of courses for people who have to capture the most fundamental of the Enterprise IT. By utilising Enterprise Architect, they can practice effective, agile modeling, while utilising the framework of choice.

Business Abstraction developed a range of courses that enable Platform-Independent Service-Oriented Architecture. Perhaps the most often quoted rule is “not to buy your SOA from your preferred supplier”. That is hard to avoid when SOA is equalled with a implementing a platform. Business Abstraction provides truly vendor-independent SOA definition path based on discovering Services through modelling with a platform-neutral modelling software.

Our BPMN2 training is very practical and focuses on achieving real results in large-scale Business Processes undertakings.

Detailed Enterprise Architecture with Sparx Enterprise Architect (4 days)

Some sites describe their Architecture in very general terms. Such Architecture, usually documented in PowerPoint presentations, can act as a high-level guide to IT. However the low level of details leaves Solution Architects and Business [Process] Analysts to reinvent the wheel, and makes maintaining compliance problematic. Business Abstraction offers an alternative - a detailed Enterprise Architecture approach employing Sparx Enterprise Architect. It enables re-use and traceability and produces artefacts sought by Analysis and Application experts, while retaining high level of abstraction and visual impact

Transition to Microservices with Sparx Enterprise Architect

Microservices is the new architectural paradigm promising to deliver truly Agile IT. However just as with Service-Oriented Architecture, and Component-Based and Object-Oriented Development before it, implementation of the underlying technology does not guarantee materialisation of promised business benefits. Our course was specifically designed for the teams attempting Microservices transformation. It ensures that the Business Motivation for the transformation is captured, and correctly converted into Microservices Contracts, while maintaining adequate presentation and traceability.
