- Boost your earning potential by up to 25%
- One of the world’s leading enterprise architecture frameworks
- Recently updated with TOGAF 9.2
Enterprise architecture (EA) has become a vital skill for modern businesses. To put it simply, EA involves the creation of blueprints (or ‘architectures’) for organizations, outlining their structure, interconnected departments and key processes. Such a holistic representation can offer a number of advantages, the most important of which is helping managers and decision makers to identify any areas which need to be altered in order to achieve key objectives.
In other words, EA can show you what you have, what you want and what you need to change in order to get from A to B. Pursuing development in this way can make the process cheaper, easier and more efficient, allowing businesses to fluidly adapt whenever necessary in order to stay competitive.
The Open Group Architecture Framework, more commonly known as ‘TOGAF’, is an excellent framework and methodology for the development of enterprise architectures. Developed and updated over the course of nearly 25 years, TOGAF has remained relevant even in the ever-changing worlds of business and technology.
TOGAF’s Architecture Development Method (ADM) offers a step-by-step process for planning, developing, changing and implementing enterprise architectures. While it sets a high standard for EA, the ADM still remains generic enough that it can be customized to suit any business, which has led to TOGAF being used across virtually every industry.
Good e-Learning is an award-winning provider for TOGAF courses. In 2018, we won the ‘Outstanding Certification Product’ prize at The Open Group Awards, hosted by the organization behind TOGAF.
If you are after a simple introduction to TOGAF and enterprise architecture, our TOGAF Awareness course can show you the potential benefits for your organization. The TOGAF Foundation and TOGAF Certification courses are excellent avenues to becoming TOGAF-certified, complete with FREE exam vouchers and practice tests. Even existing TOGAF practitioners can take advantage of our Winter Sale, with our TOGAF Essentials course offering an easy way to update TOGAF 9.1 certifications in line with the recently-released TOGAF 9.2.
- Boost your earning potential by up to 20%
- One of the world’s most popular IT service management practices
- Register your interest in ITIL 4
IT has become far more than just another tool. Modern enterprise is permeated by IT, with most if not all departments and industries relying on it some form or another. This has led to the growth of IT service management (ITSM) as a discipline, helping managers to plan, develop and improve IT services in a way that ensures they can satisfy end users.
ITIL is one of the world’s most popular ITSM frameworks, if not the most popular. It utilizes a 5-stage process known as the ‘ITIL Service Lifecycle’ to develop essential services, beginning with strategy and progressing through service design, transition and operation. The final stage, ‘continual service improvement’, then ensures that processes can be continually reassessed and improved upon in the future (and given how frequently technology is changing nowadays, there will never be any shortage of opportunities to do so!)
Following the ITIL process allows users to create services which are far more satisfactory for customers and business end users. The process is also transparent, helping managers to check the progress made towards ROIs along with the contributions made by key actors and decision makers.
Good e-Learning’s IT service management portfolio covers the entire certification path for ITIL V3. Students can begin with ITIL Foundation, before moving on to their chosen ITIL intermediate modules and, finally, Managing Across the Lifecycle (MALC). If new students want to qualify as ITIL Experts as quickly as possible, our ITIL Expert Certification Suite offers everything they need starting from Foundation level.
You can also register your interest now in order to take our courses for ITIL 4 as soon as they are released next year.
- Boost your earning potential by up to 21%
- Expertly align your IT capabilities and business goals
- Increase collaboration, accountability and morale between departments
In larger businesses, it can be easy for key actors to lose perspective. Departments can become siloed, reducing collaboration and awareness as everyone focuses solely on their own objectives. This can lead to skewed opinions and priorities among managers, particularly those who lack technological backgrounds.
‘Business process modeling’ is a discipline for mapping out internal business procedures and processes. Using graphical representations similar to flowcharts, practitioners can display departments, processes and connections in a simple and easy-to-understand manner. This can boost collaboration and awareness within a business, as well as between partners. More importantly, it enables managers to see where processes can be improved, as well as predict the impact of any proposed changes.
Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) is a leading tool for business analysts. It provides a clear methodology for defining, displaying and analyzing business and IT processes in a way that can be easily understood by analysts, developers and even managers.
Good e-Learning’s BPMN 2.0 course offers an excellent introduction to the standard. After covering the BPMN notation itself, the course moves on to how it can be applied to real-world organizations, as well as the advantages of doing so. Feedback is delivered by tutors throughout the course, and successful students will finish with a recognized and highly-regarded certificate of completion.
- Boost your earning potential by up to 26%
- Ensure consistency across all enterprise architecture models
- Provide clear guidance for managers and stakeholders
As essential a subject enterprise architecture is, it can also be incredibly complex. An enterprise architect can create a comprehensive and completely accurate blueprint for a business, but if key decision makers cannot understand it, mistakes in management can still occur.
To solve this problem, many architects will use an enterprise architecture ‘modeling language’. In essence, this allows them to display architectures in a clear and accessible format, making them easier for others to understand. This is the purpose of ArchiMate, a modeling language developed by the organization behind TOGAF, The Open Group.
ArchiMate is an open and independent enterprise architecture standard developed for the description, analysis and visualization of architectures and data flow diagrams. The clarity that it provides can be highly advantageous for managers, as it will make it far easier for them to assess the potential impacts and benefits of proposed architectural changes. It is also fully aligned with the TOGAF enterprise architecture framework, with many students pursuing ArchiMate and TOGAF certifications side by side.
The Good e-Learning ArchiMate Foundation course provides a clear and well-structured introduction to the modeling language. Certified ArchiMate users who wish to update their qualifications in line with the newest version, ArchiMate 3, can also opt for the ArchiMate bridging course. Are you interested in both TOGAF and ArchiMate? With the Winter Sale, you can take our TOGAF 9.2 Certification & ArchiMate 3 Practitioner Suite for just £959.20.
- Boost your earning potential by up to 25%
- Understand and optimize your essential IT processes
- Enable effective IT regulation and avoid serious fines
As widely used as IT is, it is not an end in itself. Rather, effective IT management should revolve around ensuring that IT can support essential business objectives. The ways in which IT is monitored, implemented and managed should also be improved whenever possible, maximizing its value in terms of efficiency, reliability and cost.
COBIT 5 is a renowned IT governance framework, designed to meet the needs of both business and IT professionals. While the tool is comprehensive, it is also generic and flexible enough to be applied to virtually any IT-driven organization, regardless of its industry, size, employee structure or anything else.
The COBIT 5 framework contains a process model, a set of best practices and several tools for building holistic IT frameworks which can fully support business goals. However, the perspective and control that COBIT 5 provides can also make it easier to pursue IT compliance. This has become far more important in recent years, particularly with developments like GDPR forcing companies to keep a closer eye on their use of technology and data.
Good e-Learning offers a number of IT governance and compliance courses. Our COBIT 5 Foundation course provides a great introduction to the tools and methodology behind COBIT and how they can be applied in practice. We also combine COBIT 5 and GDPR in a single online training package, allowing students to quickly begin implementing COBIT 5 in order to enable GDPR compliance within their organizations.
