Technology, in terms of platform and infrastructure modelling, play a vital role in business and IT design and execution. Therefore the Technology eXpert certification program is uniquely designed with technology (platform and infrastructure) modelling techniques and project mentoring in the participant’s own existing company projects.

This ensures the highest level of knowledge transfer and skills building to meet today’s organizations’ cross-disciplinary competency requirements for professionals involved in IT projects.

The Technology eXpert certification program has been structured to build on the existing competencies of the practitioner and infuse a new way of thinking, working and modelling. This is done through intensive class-room training, in-depth tutoring and coaching throughout the modules, as well as with hands-on project experience where you apply the acquired platform and infrastructure modelling techniques and its related disciplines.

The certification program with Individual Performance Coaching is designed by the Global University Alliance.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the existing knowledge that competencies are gained and applied. The Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the certification program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, models and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

The participants will discover how to drive forth fundamental changes within their organization and to achieve the objectives set in transformation projects.

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Technology eXpert.

Career path

Our curriculum is a professional and globally recognized career path built on international standards that are in use today. Our career path is developed to meet professionals and organizations need for cross-disciplinary competency creation and development. Based on a combination of the eXpert core modules, participants are offered the opportunity to specialize even further and certify in other Architect disciplines, such as Technology Architect, Information Architect or Enterprise Architect.

Learning Model

LEAD Certification Schedule - Technology eXpert RoadmapThe Technology eXpert certification program is based on an intensive classroom training module supported with in-depth Individual performance mentoring on a selected project. The hands-on experience ensures that the platform and infrastructure management and modelling skills are applied within the following tracks:

  • Technology Layer Modelling: Platform component (e.g. logical/physical), devices and services as well as infrastructure component (e.g. logical/physical) and infrastructure service.



At the end of this program, you will be able to work effectively within our:

Way of Thinking

Focus Area Relation to Strategy
  • Identify platform and infrastructure requirements
  • Platform and infrastructure design strategy
  • Focus on platform and infrastructure development and configuration
  • Develop platform and infrastructure standards
  • Ensure platform and infrastructure integration, harmonization, consolidation and testing
  • Maintain and optimize platforms and infrastructures
  • Define platform and infrastructure services linked to business services
  • Develop platform and infrastructure solutions based on business and IT requirements
  • Develop platform and infrastructure solutions based on operational objectives and goals
  • Develop technology maturity through the enterprise

Way of Working

Tasks & Services The needed skill for abstraction level for a Technology eXpert
  • Define platform and infrastructure standardization and integration
  • Define platform and infrastructure components
  • Define platform and infrastructure devices
  • Define platform and infrastructure rules
  • Develop enterprise platform and infrastructure requirements
  • Develop platform and infrastructure services
  • Ensure platform and infrastructure compliance to business, process, service, application and data rules
  • Enable platform and infrastructure channels
  • Set up platform and infrastructure media
  • Enable devices to work with platform and infrastructure components and services
  • Benchmark platform and infrastructure maturity
  • Concrete (tangible, existing and actual)
  • Descriptive and Specification (explanation, depiction/sketch and portrayal often using a map, matrix and/or model)
  • Execution (completing, performing and realizing)

Way of Modelling

Define, develop and create the following maps, matrices and/or models: Decisions Scopes
  • Platform and Infrastructure Requirements
  • Platform and Infrastructure Rules
  • Platform and Infrastructure Compliance
  • Platform and Infrastructure Services
  • Platform and Infrastructure Operating
  • Platform and Infrastructure Maturity
  • Platform and Infrastructure Interfaces
  • Infrastructure Virtualization
  • Infrastructure High Availability
  • Distribution
  • Platform and Infrastructure Business Case
  • Platform and infrastructure options and decisions
  • Platform and infrastructure setup possibilities, options and decisions
  • Platform and infrastructure standardization and integration decisions
  • Enterprise-wide
  • Specific platform and infrastructure areas
  • Solutions
  • Projects

Infrastructure Lifecycle

The Infrastructure Lifecycle consists of a set of phases and steps in which each phase uses the results of the previous one. In the context of technology modelling principles, the course participant will learn to think and split their work into the relevant lifecycle phases (e.g. Platform Lifecycle and/or Infrastructure Lifecycle). The lifecycle thinking is vital as it represents the course of developmental changes through which the service objects and artifacts change in terms of innovation and/or transformation as it passes during its lifetime. From analysis, design, build, implementation and deployment, run and maintenance to continuous improvements.
