The general learning objective of the course is that the student knows the purpose, principles and architectural types of the enterprise architectures as well as the most common implementation models. After completing the course the student will have knowledge of methods and knowledge of the most common enterprise architectures.
After completing the course the student can apply what he or she has learned in developing an enterprise architecture.
The teaching language is English, but the assignments can also be done in Finnish.
- An overview of enterprise architecture
- The most common enterprise architecture types and their requirements
- The consideration of information security within enterprise architecture
- Enterprise architecture as a tool for management
- What are business architectures and sub-architectures
- Data architecture
- Systems architecture
- Technological architecture
- The most common models of enterprise architecture:
- TOGAF architecture model, The Fnnish enterprise architecture model JHS-179 – built for public administration needs.
Depending on the implementation, earning takes place in contact lessons, independent studies, teamwork and online-studies, the course includes the assessment of one’s own learning.
Recognition of prior learning (RPL)
If students have acquired the required competence in previous work tasks, recreational activities or on another course, they can show their competence via a demonstration and thus progress faster through their studies. More information and instructions for recognising and validating prior learning (RPL) are available at MyNet.
Materials will be published in the learning platform.
Moodle is used as learning platform and Teams is used as collaboration tool.
Starting level and linkage with other courses
Assessment criteria - grade 1
The student is able to describe what enterprise architectures are and how they are built. The student understands their purpose and recognises the importance of enterprise architecture for organisations.
Assessment criteria - grade 3
In addition, the student has the vision and the ability to participate in the development of enterprise architectures; is able to work on the most common referenced architectures due to the methodological knowledge gained during the course; has the ability to take on roles in developing and maintaining an enterprise architecture.
Assessment criteria - grade 5
In addition to the above, the student has well-founded and multiple perspectives views on the development and maintenance of enterprise architectures, which enable the execution of demanding tasks when working with enterprise architecture.
Evaluation criteria, approved/failed
Passing the course is based on grading of the assignments. 40% of maximum points should be collected to pass the course.
