In this course you will discover basic Enterprise Architecture (EA) concepts and how to use HOPEX DoDAF to create architectural viewpoints and models which conform to the DoDAF meta-model (DM2). HOPEX DoDAF brings more than 20 years of enterprise architecture modeling and process optimization expertise to serve the needs of large system architecture descriptions.
Who should attend?
- DoD Managers
- Enterprise Architects
- Enterprise Project Managers
- DoDAF Project Stakeholders and Subject Matter Experts
- Apply MEGA’s methodology for managing DoDAF architecture projects.
- Use All Viewpoint (AV) to define the scope and purpose of an architecture.
- Use Capability Viewpoint (CV) to understand motivations for change and build capabilities in alignment with strategy.
- Use Operational Viewpoint (OV) to describe organizations, operational activities, information models and information exchanges required to accomplish missions.
- Use Standards Viewpoint (StdV) to use and define standards of the organization.
- Use Project Viewpoint (PV) to plan projects and to realize the systems expected by the architecture.
- Use Data & Information Viewpoint (DIV) to build a glossary for sharing and understanding the architecture.
- Use the Service Viewpoint (SvcV) to establish a service oriented style for system design.
- Use the System Viewpoint (SV) to describe the systems and interconnects between systems which support DoDAF activities.
- Produce Reports and Documentation based on the information described in the Architecture.

How is the seminar organized?
Over 3 days, this training course alternates theoretical presentations on Enterprise Architecture for DoDAF with the production of a real case scenario to enable a better understanding of the method and tool. This course is delivered by an experienced MEGA Consultant, who is knowledgeable in proper modelling techniques and in the use of HOPEX DoDAF.
