Proven Professional is launching the Enterprise Architect Certification Program in the beginning of 2021. Formal dates are to be announced.

An enterprise architect (EA) is a specialist that works closely with stakeholders, including management and subject matter experts (SME), to develop a view of an organization's strategy, information, processes and IT assets. An EA is the technology strategist for the business and customer first advocate and is responsible for using this knowledge to ensure IT and business alignment.

An EA connects an organization’s business mission, methodology and processes to its IT strategy. They establish an in-depth understanding of current and future state capabilities with the help of an array of architectural models. These models provide a picture of how an organization's existing and future requirements may be accomplished in an effective, agile, sustainable and flexible manner.

The Enterprise Architect program consists of an initial application and a board review by our accredited Board Member team. Candidates can be certified at one of 3 levels, determined by your experience and skill set:

  • Level 1: able to perform with assistance/supervision, with a wide range of appropriate skills, as a contributing architect
