Infrastructure Architect Program

Why the certification is relevant

As the complexity of IT grows, more and more organisations are realizing the need for cross-disciplinary architectural capabilities in the fields of infrastructure technology. Gartner once identified the Infrastructure Architect as one of the key roles to adopt cross-disciplinary capabilities to create more value than previously anticipated.

The Infrastructure Architect Program has been structured to build on the existing capabilities of the practitioner, and to infuse a new way of thinking, working and modelling. It combines a mix of infrastructure architecture skills with enterprise architecture to enable technology architecture and modelling disciplines to be managed effectively by the practitioner.

The Infrastructure Architect Program including Individual Performance Coaching is offered as a 5 days training program and is designed and certified by the Global University Alliance.

Focus of the Infrastructure Architect

The Infrastructure Architect Program is based on an intensive 5-day classroom training module and is supported by Individual Performance Coaching on a project selected by the partitioner.

The hands-on experience ensures that the infrastructure and enterprise architecture management and modelling skills are applied within the following disciplines:

  • Business Layer Modelling
  • Information Layer Modelling
  • Technology Layer Modelling

The Infrastructure Architect Program can be integrated into any relevant organisation. It does so by adding theory, practice and modelling capabilities to the practitioner’s skill set.

Individual Performance Coaching

It is only through coaching and building on the participant’s existing knowledge that capabilities are gained and applied.

Individual Performance Coaching is an integrated element of the Infrastructure Architect education and training program to ensure that the frameworks, methods, approaches, and modelling principles are customized, adopted and applied in a real-world project setting with a personalized action plan.

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Infrastructure Architect.

The individual registration fee of €9,800 Euro (excl. VAT) covers tuition, handouts, case materials and conference facilities. Travel and accommodations is not included.

Important to note is that the Infrastructure Architect Program requires input from interested parties as the program is tailored to each individual, team or organization and is customized with planned dates and location.

The program includes:

  • 5 days of classroom training
  • Individual Performance Coaching
  • 1 Infrastructure Architect Certificate
