NICF- Certified Enterprise Architecture Practitioner Course

Overview

“Enterprise Architecture is the organising logic for business processes and IT infrastructure, reflecting the integration and standardisation requirements of the company's operating model. The enterprise architecture provides a long-term view of a company's processes, systems and technologies so that individual projects can build capabilities - not just fulfill immediate needs.”

- Jeanne W. Ross, Peter Weill, David C. Robertson,
Enterprise Architecture As Strategy, Harvard Business School Press, 2006

The Institute of Systems Science of the National University of Singapore (ISS) conducts the Certified Enterprise Architecture Practitioner Course to provide participants with in-depth knowledge and best practices on Enterprise Architecture.

The course covers the four key architectures that impacts the enterprise. These are Business Architecture, Information Architecture, Application Architecture and Technology Architecture.
