TOGAF® using Sparx Enterprise Architect

Course #: 21-0623
Duration: 2 Days


  • Enterprise architect
  • Business architect
  • Data architect
  • Application architect
  • Technology architect
  • System architect
  • Software architect
  • Solution architect


TOGAF® with Sparx Enterprise Architect provides students with a hands-on opportunity for learning how to capture enterprise architecture models and related content using the MDG Technology™ for TOGAF add-in 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 begin with capturing the request for architecture work, identifying architecture principles and reviewing a formal model of TOGAF®. Student then describe an architecture vision with high-level baseline and target architectures. Students continue following the Architecture Development Method (ADM) and build models for the business, data, application, and technology architecture domains. The course shows students how to capture a high-level migration plan and interoperability requirements. The course concludes with modeling the architecture review process and describing solution delivery recommendations. Most class time is used for students to do hands-on lab exercises following a step-by-step workbook.
