Architect Core - Online April 2020

Architect Core - Online April 2020
Registration for the IASA Online Core course starting Monday April 27, 2020.




Our online, instructor-led courses have the same information as our onsite class, but are hosted live via Zoom or Microsoft Teams (both currently available for free).  The Iasa Architect Core Training Program develops a clear pathway and establishes a defined baseline for successful IT Architects.  The flexibility, quality, changeability, scalability and durability of a system depends on the underlying architecture. And a good architecture is based on the correct foundation work.  Lack of architecture work not only results in higher technical debt along with costly as well as ineffective solutions, but also in long-term issues embedded in the business activities that the solutions will support.

The course prepares you for the CITA-Foundation certification which demonstrates that you are on this path and that you are taking the necessary steps to become a fully qualified architect. CITA-F is a certification relevant for an international labor market. So far, more than 3,600 professionals around the world have been certified.

The Iasa Core Course for IT Architects cover the knowledge of models and tools for developing IT architectures that meet the demands of modern business. The curriculum has been developed by IT architects for IT architects, and is one of the basic ideas behind Iasa.  The course focuses on: 

  • Architecture Thinking: building a solid foundation and ensuring architects think like architects
  • Architecture Engagement: understanding the role and how architects engage
  • Architecture Demand: discovering ways to understand the demands of the business
  • Architecture Supply: fulfilling that demand and delivering the architecture
  • Architecture Practice: how best to build the practice of architecture within your organization
