Self-Study CBDM Certification Course


Introduction

June 22, 2007: This issue highlights newly released online webcast video courses covering the "Rapid Delivery of  Enterprise Architecture". It also discusses the self-study course: Certified Business Data Modeler (CBDM).

Information Engineering Services Pty Ltd (IES) presents both online video course segments and certification courses based on its public and inhouse courses presented  throughout the world. These provide training in rapid delivery methods and certified data modeling self-study training for Enterprise Architecture (EA) and Enterprise Integration.

The EA courses apply to the Zachman Framework for Enterprise Architecture, the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework (FEAF),  the Department of Defense (DoD) Architecture Frameworks (C4ISR and DoDAF) and many other frameworks. These courses result in rapid delivery into production of priority business activities and processes.

The CBDM self-study course has been used throughout the world to train and certify both business experts and IT staff in Business Data Modeling concepts. It covers Business Data Mapping Concepts and Business Normalization Concepts, with a real-life Data Modeling Case Study Workshop that tests the student's understanding of the principles that they have learned. Their solution to this case study becomes their Exam Solution for CBDM Assessment.

RAPID DELIVERY OF ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE
  • Click on the Registration Link below each Section table of Course Segments that follow. More webcast videos will be progressively added for online registration from September 2007.

Section 1: Enterprise Architecture for Managers and IT

This section covers what is commonly referred to as Business Architecture. One of the biggest problems in achieving success in Enterprise Architecture is in getting active participation from business managers and business experts.  The segments in this section demonstrate that business knowledge is vital for success with EA. This knowledge is not an IT responsibility, but is the responsibility of business managers and their expert staff. IT staff also need to take a different approach in systems development, to build support systems that can be easily changed to support rapid business change.

This course section shows how business managers and their staff become actively involved, to drive the EA activity to success. Two White Papers can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.

The Video column in the following table provides the duration of each video segment, with the total duration of all segments for this section also listed. The PDF column refers to the Handouts (as Two per Page visuals in PDF) that can be downloaded to refer to, while you are doing each video segment. All segments below are of interest to both managers and IT staff.

Section 2: Using Strategy Analysis to Define the Future

A key requirement for success with Business Architecture is a focus on the future based on Strategic Business Plans. Strategy Analysis is a rapid delivery method for Strategic Planning. The course segments in this section show how to use Strategy Analysis to develop business plans from scratch if they do not yet exist, or how to refine existing business plans. Strategy Analysis can also be used by IT staff to gain a detailed understanding of the future business needs for inclusion in Project Requirements Specifications. A Business Planning Questionnaire is provided as a catalyst to develop new Business Plans from scratch or to refine existing plans.

This course section shows how business managers and their staff can become actively involved in identifying future business needs, to drive Enterprise Architecture to success. A White Paper and a Business Planning Questionnaire can be downloaded for detailed reference after viewing the course segments in this section.
