Course Outline


Introduction to Business Architecture for the Public Sector (EBA210) Aligning Public Sector Business and IT Strategies (EBA240)


Through lecture and case study-driven workshops, you will learn how to bridge the gap between planning and implementation. You will relate the impact of different solution strategies on the Enterprise Business Architecture (EBA) and be able to use EBA designs in Requests for Proposals (RFPs). You will learn the relationship between EBA and functional, information, business rules, and security requirements. You will learn to map the relationship between business processes and software services in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA). You will also learn the nature and use of EA repositories to support architectural reuse.

Students pursuing a university-recognized and/or accredited certificate in Canada or continuing education units in the US must attend at least 90% of class time, participate in class exercises and section-knowledge checks, and score at least 70% on an end-of-class, multiple-choice assessment.

What You'll Learn

• Distinguish between strategically aligned solutions and traditional stovepipe solutions
• Use the target business and system models to ensure alignment of solution design
• Use enterprise integration strategies to align solutions with the target systems model
• Determine impact of the as-built/implemented solution on the target business and system model
• Validate business alignment through solution benefits realization and tracking

Wasn’t as advanced as I thought it would be. There was an issue when the day my course was the first time they used a new platform.. from adobe to something called zoom; I had to call support line cause it stated our instructor wasn’t present. Thankfully I called cause everyone online was in the adobe virtual classroom waiting for what looked like a teacher who didn’t show up for class (IT didn’t get anything resolved until 10mins after start time). I felt like he was really getting hung up on very basic knowledge for the first half of the course (talking about how to create tabs and drag formulas as an example). I completed files a few times before he was done explaining. There was a scheduled fire drill for them (roughly 30mins)that also cut into our time, which wasn’t deducted from the hour lunch break or the two, fifteen min breaks. I also really wish he touched base more on the automating workbook functions portion which we barely did. I'm happy there were/are those study guides (learning videos) and exams to take on my own time that I hope after I've had the class are still available for me to learn from.
