DMN Modelling with Sparx Enterprise Architect

Introduction

The Object Management Group's (OMG's) Decision Model and Notation (DMN) is a modeling language for capturing the design of decision processes. It provides an industry standard way to model decisions using proven techniques and approaches.

Operational decisions can always be defined in terms of inputs (the current operational situation) and outputs (the wished-for outcome), and the DMN language allows non-programmers to capture that model in a well-defined (and automatable) notation.

Decision modeling captures the questions these decisions pose and the answers that are possible. It documents the information they rely on and how they are influenced by company policies, external regulations and local expertise.

This results in a thorough and precise definition of decision-making that allows the impact of any proposed change to be quickly assessed. In addition, the requirements for a decision and any gaps or flaws in an organisation’s approach are swiftly revealed.

Course Description

This two-day course focuses on the practical application of decision modeling with DMN in the Sparx Enterprise Architect tool. It teaches delegates how to unambiguously describe decision-making, specify analytic requirements and develop decision logic (business rules).

The course takes a workshop format which includes the completion of exercises with the assistance and guidance of the course instructor.

Training News

2019 has seen the launch of The Open Group’s TOGAF Business Architecture Level 1 qualification. Real IRM prides itself as being the only service provider to offer this accredited course and credential in South Africa.

The credential is aimed at individuals who want to validate their knowledge and understanding of Business Modelling, Business Capabilities, TOGAF Business Scenarios, Information Mapping, and Value Streams by applying them in the development of a Business Architecture based on the TOGAF ® Standard Version, 9.2.

The Open Group ArchiMate® Forum will make available the latest version of the ArchiMate Specification®, version 3.0, with a series of announcements and events to take place throughout the months of June and July.

The latest evolution has the following new features:

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 Open Group has launched a Risk and Security standard and Credential for Security Architects, and Real IRM is offering this accredited course as part of its course portfolio.

The credential is aimed at individuals who work in roles related to Enterprise Security Architecture, Enterprise Risk Management, or Information Security Management and require an understanding of security and risk concepts in relation to the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM).

The course, which focuses on knowledge and comprehension, helps individuals better understand:

As organisations embrace rapid and radical digitisation, new demands are placed on individuals, and new skill-sets rise into popularity.

For those in traditional Business Analyst and Project Management roles, one of the most opportunity-laden directions to evolve into is Business Architecture.

Business Architecture, as one of the Enterprise Architecture domains, regularly features on lists of hottest, most in-demand IT skills. It’s a natural extension of Business Analysis, for those looking to elevate their career to a more strategic level.

Enterprise Architecture specialist Real IRM has launched a two-day training programme – aimed at certifying individuals in The Open Group IT4IT™ Reference Architecture standard.
 
This coincides with The Open Group conference in London this week which saw the official launch of the IT4IT™ certification. Real IRM is immediately bringing the certification to South African shores to add to their existing portfolio of international certification programmes from The Open Group – which includes TOGAF® and ArchiMate®.
 

IT specialists interested in developing their expertise in the rapidly-growing field of Enterprise Architecture (EA) can now benefit from the Zachman Framework course, from leading EA training provider Real IRM.
 
This newly-designed course is ideal for those looking to get to grips with one of the most fundamental frameworks in the field. It is perfect for individuals who aspire to become architects, since it deals with some of the fundamental building blocks of EA.

Enterprise Architecture specialists Real IRM has launched a new training course designed for business analysts who are required to use Unified Modelling Language (UML).

The course helps to more closely link the disciplines of business analysis and technical implementation. It empowers analysts with a solid foundation in UML, and allows them to write UML specifications, without being drowned in technical detail.

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.
