AUSTIN, TEXAS, US, January 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Iasa Global, the world’s leading professional association for business technology architects, announced today the availability of its online Foundation Course for BT Architects, an online program designed to provide participants with a solid understanding of the foundational concepts of architecture.
The course, which provides a clear pathway and defined baseline for successful BT architects, will be streamed live February 21-24 from Amsterdam. The course will be taught by an instructor in English, using Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
Participants can register for the course here.
“We created this course because the flexibility, quality, changeability, scalability and durability of a system depends on the underlying architecture,” said Paul Preiss, the CEO and founder of Iasa Global. “And a good architecture is based on the correct foundation work, something we strongly believe in and the reason we created this course.”
Preiss went on to provide additional details:
What you’ll learn
The Iasa Core Course for BT Architects gives you as an architect knowledge of models and tools for developing BT architectures that meet the demands of modern business. The curriculum is developed by BT architects for BT architects, which is one of the basic ideas behind Iasa. The course focuses on:
1. Dealing with Business Concepts – the complex business skills that are reserved only for the highest level architects. These concepts include Business Models, Customer Journeys with Personas, Capabilities with Objectives, Value Methods, Investment Planning with some Roadmapping.
2. Technology Design and Delivery – there is a deep and interesting dialog in the industry, how much business AND how much technology? If a product owner wants to become an architect, what technology should they learn? How deep do they go? At a minimum, Design, including Patterns, the primary Requirements/Decisions/Quality Attributes relationships, Architecture Analysis, Deliverables, Products/Projects, Services, and Quality Assurance. Again, the assumption is working knowledge including having written and supported some aspects of each in a production like environment.
3. Dealing with Stakeholders – often overlooked, always under-trained, and never enough time or techniques, dealing with stakeholders is the hardest part of the job. Humans are mercurial, the lines of decision traceability and influence are blurred, it is effectively chaos in the lifecycle management of companies with lots of power plays and even more in terms of financing and final outcomes. But at a minimum, Stakeholder, Employee Culture and Mindset, Engagement Models with Deliverables and Engagement Touchpoints and then a number of competencies tied to those.
Iasa Global’s foundation course is aimed at anyone who wants to become involved in architectural work. You should have working knowledge and experience of system development. You work as a developer, project manager, information model or process developer.

• Pre-Study material
