The Open Group Business Architecture Qualification | Real IRM

Real IRM

Leading Enterprise Architecture Value™

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 Real IRM course, Business Architecture in Practice, is offered as 3-day classroom-based training with a key focus on making Business Architecture practical.

On completing the training, individuals will show an understanding of:

-The topic of Business Modeling and how it relates to Enterprise Architecture within a TOGAF context
-The concept of Business Capabilities and how they can be modeled
-Value Streams and value stream mapping
-Information Mapping
-How to apply the TOGAF Business Scenario method
-How a Business Architecture can be developed with the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM)

To achieve certification, individuals must attend training and then write an exam. Exams are in an online proctored format. This means that candidates can take their exams in the comfort of their home or office, whilst still having the same security features that the Pearson Vue Testing Centre is known to provide.

Upon successful completion of the certification credential, individuals are awarded with an Open Badge. Open Badges can be used in email signatures, social media sites, personal web sites and electronic copies of resumes.
