For organizations seeking to model their service offerings using the Service-Oriented Modeling Framework™ (SOMF™) as provided by Enterprise Architect.
The course caters to organizations looking for a framework in which to discover and define new services, refine/reuse existing ones, and in general manage a service portfolio.
Modeling a Service Architecture Using SOMF™ covers the notation proposed by Michael Bell in his seminal books Service-Oriented Modeling - Service Analysis, Design and Architecture and Modeling Patterns for Service-Oriented Discovery and Analysis.
The technology neutral representation of services specified by SOMF™, which does not assume a Web Service (SOA) based implementation, provides a formal method of defining services through may different viewpoints (conceptual, analysis, design and architecture), along with a set of disciplines to guide the modeler in his/her practice. The resulting set of models offers an inclusive view of the service offerings to each of the constituencies involved in their definition and realization.
Please note that this training does NOT cover the process related aspects of the book, for example the extensive guidelines for service discovery, but instead focuses on the modeling facets, including meta-model concepts, notation, guidelines and tool usage. Reading the books is not a prerequisite for the course, but is nonetheless highly recommended!
Business/system analysts, architects and designers seeking to exploit a comprehensive notation for modeling a service portfolio, regardless of the implementation technology used to realize the services.

Managing Baselines and Comparing Models
This course helps students document their service portfolio through a set of related models that are of value to a wide range of audiences: business stakeholders, analysts, architects and developers. These models can then be mapped downstream to lower level analysis and design artifacts, as well as upward into the business architecture, opening the way for complete end-to-end traceability between the service requirements as expressed by the business, and the service implementations provided by IT.
