Training News

November 2019 saw The Open Group release its latest version of the ArchiMate ® modeling language for Enterprise Architecture.

Version 3.1 is an update from Version 3.0 which was released in 2016. The update may be minor, but the new version holds a number of useful additions and improvements for Enterprise Architecture practitioners.

The three most notable improvements are:
- The addition of a value stream element
- The introduction of a directed notation for association
- Further formalization and refinement of the rules for deriving relationships

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.

In addition to its capabilities for modeling and designing software systems, Sparx Enterprise Architect is also a powerful tool for enterprise architecture. Enterprise architecture is the practice of designing and organizing a company's IT systems, processes, and data in a way that aligns with the overall goals and strategies of the organization.

We are pleased to announce that we now offer live, virtual training which delegates can attend from the comfort of their own homes or offices.

This is another way to ensure that all our delegates can access our training throughout South Africa and the world, whilst not having to worry about traveling. Delegates will have the same high quality content presented as if they were in a face-to-face class, and will still have the opportunity to interact with the trainer and fellow delegates during the course.

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:

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.
