Agilest® Certified Agile Enterprise Architect (CAEA)
The Agilest® CAEA (Certified Agile Enterprise Architect) certification training from Agilest® is designed to give aspiring enterprise architects, system engineers, and managers responsible for the infrastructure decisions the skills and knowledge that they need to lead successfully in their role responsibilities within the Agile organization.
About Agilest® CAEA
The CAEA (Certified Agile Enterprise Architect) training is designed to get the participants thinking about Modular Agile Service Oriented Architecture as the basis of the infrastructure that will be used to underlie all development. The purpose of going this route is to create systems that are loosely interconnected via a service bus so that any of the system components can be adapted as needed without disrupting the entire organization. The goal is to develop organizational systems that can be modified and adapted quickly to new or changing system needs.
Agilest® CAEA (Certified Agile Enterprise Architect) certification training. The Agilest® CAEA (Certified Agile Enterprise Architect) training from Agilest® is a comprehensive Agile overview of the agile techniques for developing a modular service-oriented architecture that is critical to be adaptable in an agile development environment. This training is intended for aspiring enterprise architects, and managers who will be chiefly responsible for driving the infrastructure design decisions at organizations that are engaged in Agile practices. The core focus is on enabling those who are leading Agile infrastructure development with the core understandings they will need for driving their design.
The focuses of the CAEA certification training are the fundamental principles required for operating Modular Service Oriented Architecture the Agile way. An overview of the Agile frameworks that are central to the Agilest® development philosophy including Kanban, Scrum, and Scrumban are all addressed in a way that drives the understanding why it is critical to building an adaptable infrastructure that is responsive to Agile development. The presentations are simple enough for management to understand, but deep enough to give the participant the confidence to make design decisions that are informed after they have completed the sessions.
The main differentiator between Agilest® and other training providers is that we strive for complete solutions. Most companies have enough on their hands focusing on getting their development work done, what they do not need is the added complexity of determining what the best infrastructure and methodology solutions they need to be using. That is where we come into the picture. We develop software solutions both in-house and at client sites. A big part of how we create and confirm our solutions is by way of the fact that we have so many projects going on, and because we have developed a culture of cooperation among our entire staff. We encourage (rigorously) that all of our team members involved with development take part in a bi-weekly retrospective where we can get a significant amount of input about what is working and what is not. Through our retrospective process, we can compress what would otherwise take decades if our input was linear from every year that we are involved in development. To reinforce the learnings that the participants will receive, a significant portion of the classroom time will be focused on workshop activities to develop critical Agile Modular Architecture understandings for leading the design of Service Oriented Architecture with an Enterprise Service Bus.
The final key component includes the online tools and training provided as an additional resource to the participants of this training. Given to all alumni is private access to an online repository of resources relevant to their particular practice area. The private entrance area has tools to aid practitioners in the execution of their duties at their workplace.
The online private access resources include:
- Additional training
- Reinforcing workshop exercises
- Planning tools
- Documentation templates
- Private expert forum
Our goal is the success of our students, and we have made an effort to include everything that will help them in their particular role. We are continuously updating and adding to the content that we make available. Of important note, we are a company that does what it teaches, and we provide our students what we use when delivering at clients. We make everything that we have empirically proven to be useful available to our certification training participants.
The training and exercises in the certification program include:
- Modular Architecture
- Service Oriented Architecture
- Enterprise Service Bus
- Agile Architecture
- Leading the sprint planning meetings
- Driving continuous improvement
The entire training program is designed to address the realities of the organization and what is needed to be successful in real world development.
