Sparx Enterprise Architect Business Architecture provides students with a hands-on opportunity for learning how to capture business architecture models using the Unified Modeling Language 2.0 (UML) with Enterprise Architect (EA) from Sparx Systems. Starting with an overview of EA, students will review various tool configuration options and model structuring and organization guidelines. 

Students will begin with creating a business analysis model that identifies key entities in the business domain. Then students model business actors and business services using use case notation. The course continues with describing how to represent business events and how they affect key business entities. Students learn how to model business workflow using activity diagrams. Then students capture the realization of business services using collaboration and sequence diagrams. The course concludes with how to model business components, their service contracts, and their internal design using a capability realization. Most class time is used for students to do hands-on lab exercises following a step-by-step workbook.
