The course will explore the basics of EA, such as reference architectures, architecture patterns, and a comparison of EA and other architecture types. Students will also examine the opportunities and limitations of various EA frameworks and will apply the methods and tools of one of those frameworks, TOGAF, to design and document an EA initiative. Additionally, the EA implications of recent ICT trends such as cloud computing, global regulatory compliance, data protection, artificial intelligence, and ICT ecosystems will be explored.
