NICF- Architecting Software Solutions

Overview

In today’s fast-paced world, organisations are constantly developing and deploying applications to meet business objectives. However, despite efforts to improve engineering practices and technologies, software intensive systems continue to present formidable risks and difficulties in design, construction, deployment and evolution.

This course is the only one of its kind to focus on solution architecture with emphasis on software qualities such as security, availability, performance and maintainability. Participants will learn about architectural concepts through a combination of lectures and scenario-based workshops for enterprise applications. The course equips the participant with the necessary technical skills to design robust, secure and maintainable architectures.

Upon successful completion of this course, participants will earn 20 PDUs (PM: 16, Leadership: 3, Business: 1) that can be used to maintain your PMP® credential. Note that for the purpose of PDU reporting by those with PMP® credentials, the PMI REP Provider Number of ISS is “2339”.
