Business Architects, moving up step by step.

Over the years we have been training technical profiles and over time we focused more on more on architects.
In the BeNeLux the Are You the Smartest program grew from a contest for technical consultants to an EMEA wide program for architects and technical certification.

Until last year the background of our offerings was technical.

Of course we continue this program, but it's also time for a next step: the business architects.

Session for business architects come from a business case and move from there to a architectural solution.
Session for business architects are not only about listening to an Oracle message but also about networking, as in business architecture, there are more solutions and it's the business knowledge before the technical knowledge that drives the process.

Hot offering at this moment:
