Training News

The ArchiMate 2.1 Specification and supporting materials were released today. ArchiMate 2.1 is a maintenance update to ArchiMate 2.0, addressing comments raised since the introduction of ArchiMate 2.0 in 2012.

The Open Group has announced their new Open FAIR Certification Program aimed at Risk Analysts. The certification program focuses on The Open Group Risk Taxonomy and Risk Analysis standards which have advanced the risk analysis profession by defining a standard taxonomy for risk, and by describing the process aspects of a rigorous risk analysis. 

In order to become certified, Risk Analysts must pass an Open FAIR certification exam which is currently available at Prometric Centres. Training courses will be delivered through an Open Group accredited channel. 

The Open Group announced that a new ArchiMate 2.0 Foundation certification exam is available through accredited training organizations and also at Prometric test centres around the world.

ArchiMate® certification is for architects who want an internationally recognised qualification to demonstrate their detailed knowledge and ability to apply ArchiMate 2.0. It is targeted at those individuals who require a deep understanding of ArchiMate® and/or are responsible for developing architecture artifacts using the language. The certification is also intended for architects wanting to introduce ArchiMate® into their architecture practices.

The Open Group has released ArchiMate® 2.0, the latest version of the open and independent modeling language for Enterprise Architecture. ArchiMate® 2.0 is now more closely aligned with TOGAF® and enables the creation of fully integrated models of an organization's Enterprise Architecture, the motivation behind it, and the programs, projects and migration paths to implement it.

The TOGAF® 9 People Certification program has been designed to accommodate maintenance updates (such as TOGAF® 9.1) to the TOGAF® 9 specification. Thus, the certification remains as “TOGAF® 9 Foundation” and “TOGAF 9 Certified”, and individuals who are currently certified in the TOGAF® 9 People Certification program remain certified.

TOGAF® 9.1 was released on 1 December 2011. It contains a set of corrections to address the feedback submitted since the introduction of TOGAF® 9 in 2009. This new version has addressed over 400 of the comments received, resulting in over 450 changes to the standard.
The changes are upwards compatible adding clarification, consistency and additional detail where needed. Some of the most significant updates include:

Real IRM has launched a first-of-its-kind course for Enterprise Architects – dealing specifically with the change management, change leadership and communication skills required to produce effective business transformation.

Enterprise Architecture (EA) programmes are vulnerable to failing unless they are supported by a powerful change management strategy and effective stakeholder engagement.

This course breaks away from the technical aspects of EA. It draws on the psychological aspects that need to be considered when an organisation redefines its architectural vision.

Real IRM’s ArchiMate® 2.0 Certification Training is one of only six Accredited ArchiMate® Training Courses in the world, and the only one in South Africa.

The Open Group provides an authoritative and independent assurance of the quality and relevance of its Accredited Training Courses.
Accreditation means that…

Enterprise Architecture specialist Real IRM has wasted no time in scheduling its first ArchiMate 2.0 certification training courses following its recent achievement of becoming Africa’s first accredited training centre on the international modelling standard.

Enterprise architects in South Africa seeking to take their craft to the next level with the ArchiMate modeling language can do so for the first time in Africa. That’s the word from Real IRM which has become one of only eight organisations worldwide accredited  to provide an ArchiMate 2.0 certification training course.

Real IRM, a leading enterprise architecture specialist, is launching the first ArchiMate 1.0 training course in South Africa in July.

Real IRM will offer ArchiMate training locally and internationally alongside its TOGAFTM (The Open Group Architecture Framework) training and certification. The training will be presented in the form of instructor-led, public and client-specific courses.

The key to a career as an enterprise architect is TOGAF®

Choosing a career as an enterprise architect can be the most important decision in a young person's life. It opens many doors, locally and internationally, and ensures that they are well rounded in their general approach to a wide range of business and IT issues. It challenges them to take the step up in terms of strategic thinking.

The growing demand for TOGAF® version 9 and its certification program is indicative of the accelerating global adoption of the standard.
