The Zachman Certified - Enterprise Architect Program


After countless discoveries about the science of Enterprise Architecture from the Zachman Framework 3.0; and due to unprecedented demand, we are proud to offer the Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect program.

This hand's-on modeling workshop, we develop the science behind EA, as derived from the Zachman Framework Ontology. We'll be looking at real-life examples and case studies from real consulting projects and finally give you the ability to answer the question "how do I use The Zachman Framework?" We "workshop" how to build and implement PRIMITIVE models and then actually see how that once you get some primitives built, then creating and changing the composite models and implementations in order to get at General Management problems is quite simple. We explore this by using several methodologies and tools that will help you "implement" the Zachman concepts in your enterprise. Understanding this "science" offers great capability to EAs for analysis and simulation solutions in their enterprise. It is a different EA paradigm!

This Level 1 course not only prepares you to take the Level 1 Zachman® exam in order to obtain your Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Associate (Level 1) designation, but also prepares you to present your case study for designation as a Zachman Certified™ - Enterprise Architect Practitioner (Level 2).

"If any person or company claims to do something with, or know something about The Zachman Framework, or they claim to be Certified in The Zachman Framework and their name does not appear when searched on the Zachman International at Zachman.com, then I would have to question the veracity of their claim and whether or not they actually know anything about the fundamental concepts embodied in The Zachman Framework."
