This Introduction to Solution and Software Architecture training course introduces the students to the fundamentals of Solution and Software Architecture. Within the broader strategic vision that Enterprise Architecture (EA) provides, there is a need to provide structure and guidance around the more tactical solution architecture capabilities that are developed to ensure they are consistent with the broader EA strategy. Within the context of each solution stack, there is additionally a need to properly craft software solutions so that they are in compliance with and help to enable the vision of the larger solution architecture. This course provides the critical linkage between Enterprise, Solution, and Software Architectures.

Throughout the three days, the course content is reinforced through hands-on exercises, group discussion, and case study examination. Students will leave with a balanced understanding of the leading Solution and Software Architecture approaches in the marketplace and a solid grasp regarding how to align those within the context of a broader Enterprise Architecture (EA) strategy.
