Duration: 3 days
Course code: SS-ARC-002


The Software Architecture training course is built for IT Architects and other software professionals aspiring to become IT architects

  • Developers
  • Designers
  • Architects
  • Consultants

The Software Architecture course requires fundamental understanding of software development.


The Software Architecture 2 training course teaches IT architects the mindset required to build robust, scalable and maintainable architectures. The course teaches a methodology and a set of techniques that show how to ensure that all aspects of a technical architecture are covered and documented.
The Software Architecture training course also teaches a set of architectural structures and patterns essential in building enterprise architectures. This course covers advanced aspects of object technology. The course teaches a variety of approaches to advanced issues important in real world applications. Particular attention is given to topics that improve the precision and quality of developed systems.


Upon completion, students will be able to:

  • Recognize and understand the various aspects of IT architectures
  • Be able to recognize, understand and use the most common architectural patterns
  • Effectively document IT architectures
  • Be able to identify the various customers of IT architecture
  • Understand how to analyze architectural assets
  • Apply an effective methodology for evolving architectures
