Sparx Enterprise Architect BIZBOK provides students with a hands-on opportunity for learning how use Sparx Enterprise Architect (EA) to support the methods outlined in “A Guide to the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge®” (BIZBOK Guide) from the Business Architecture Guild®. Starting with an overview of the capabilities of EA, students will review various tool configuration options and model structuring and organization guidelines. Students will begin with creating a high-level context diagram describing the scope of the business architecture transformation. Then students will build value maps and value stream specifications based on key stakeholders. The course continues with building capability, organization, and information maps and then cross-mapping amongst them. Students learn how to model the five extension domains for stakeholder, strategy, initiative, product, and policy. The course covers additional features including relationship matrices, traceability, security, publishing content, and time-aware modeling. Most class time is used for students to do hands-on lab exercises.
