What actually characterises a good software architecture? What challenges does the software architect have to face today? Is he more of a technician, organizer or mediator? These questions and more are covered in this training. Furthermore, you will learn the basic tools of the software architect. Using a case study, you will analyze and evaluate the requirements of stakeholders and learn methods and techniques to design high-quality software. We also teach you how to qualitatively assess IT systems and document them efficiently.

  • Duration

    4  days
  • Goal

    On the basis of concrete practical examples and use cases, the tools of a software architect are taught. This includes methodical, technical and communication skills. After the course, you will be able to describe your stakeholders’ requirements in a comprehensible way in an implementable software architecture and to communicate convincingly and clearly.

    On the last day you can take the “CPSA-F” exam according to iSAQB®.
