Our mission is to recognize those extraordinary Enterprise Architecture practitioners who are able to make an almost immediate and positive impact on an architecture development team because of their ability to:

  • Roll up their sleeves and produce quality artifacts
  • Interact effectively with customers and subject matter experts
  • Outline an overall development process
  • Provide technical leadership
  • Coach and mentor less-experienced architects

Our Enterprise Architecture Certification is based on a candidate’s ability to create a business and technical architecture in a constrained time frame.

“I looked into other certification programs, but this one fit my schedule, was reasonably priced, and verified that I can actually produce a product.

I know too many people who got their certification simply because they sat through a class which did not give them experience to positively contribute to getting work done.

I’m glad that there is finally a certification to weed out those who can talk the talk, but can’t walk the walk!”
