Course Description

In this course, you'll examine phase G, phase H, and architecture requirements management of the Architecture Development Method (ADM Cycle). You'll also learn about the TOGAF® framework and Enterprise Architecture with a focus on guidelines and techniques.

Learning Objectives

Architecture Development Method (ADM Cycle)

  • start the course
  • describe the inputs, processes, and outputs of the implementation governance phase of the ADM
  • describe the objectives and approach of the architecture change management phase of the ADM
  • describe the inputs, processes, and outputs of the architecture change management phase of the ADM
  • describe the objectives and approach of the architecture requirements management phase of the ADM
  • describe the inputs, processes, and outputs of the architecture requirements management phase of the ADM

ADM Guidelines and Techniques

  • introduce guidelines and techniques and how they can be applied to the ADM
  • describe how to apply iteration to the ADM
  • describe how to apply the architectural landscape to the ADM
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on architecture domains and business requirements
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on preliminary phase
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on the architecture vision phase
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on the business architecture phase
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on the information systems architecture phase
  • describe how to apply security architecture to the ADM focusing on the technology architecture phase
