Technology Architect Program

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

The 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 technology architecture skills (e.g. taxonomy, ontology, and artefacts such as infrastructure and platform maps, matrices and models) with enterprise architecture to enable technology architecture and modelling disciplines to be managed effectively by the practitioner.

This ensures the highest level of knowledge transfer and skills building to meet todays demands of cross-disciplinary capability requirements of technology and enterprise architecture expertise for professionals involved in such IT projects.

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

Technology Architect Disciplines

The Technology 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 technology (platform and infrastructure) and enterprise architecture management and modelling skills are applied within the following disciplines:

  • Business Layer Modelling: Business model, service model, process modelling, business workflow, business and system measurements, scorecards, dashboards and cockpits.
  • Information Layer Modelling: Application component (e.g. logical/physical), application feature, functionality, task and service and data component, entity and service and system flow.
  • Technology Layer Modelling: Platform component (e.g. logical/physical), devices and services as well as infrastructure component (e.g. logical/physical) and infrastructure service.

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 Technology 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.

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

Upon successful completion of this program, you will become a certified Technology 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 Technology 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 Technology Architect Certificate
