General: General questions about Architecture Management Institute.
I see refrence to AMI but the url has IT-AMI?
Now a days it is almost impossible to find a 3 letter domain name such as (AMI), so we added the IT-AMI to get a unique name for our website. Also the Information Technology (IT) letters before AMI highlights that our focus is Information Technology Architecture and NOT building architecture.
Training: Questions related to the architecture training program.
Will the course be offered at different locations?
We are always looking for opportunities to offer the course at different locations depending on the demand from that location. Keep checking our training schedule and it is possible that we will offer the course in these cities in the future.
Do you provide training at client sites?
We can offer training at client sites if there is a large group and it is more cost effective to have the course delivered in-house. However, there is a minimum number of students required to run a program at a client site. Please contact us for more details for a customized course.
Are there any prerequisite for the training course?
There are no prerequisite material for the IT Architecture Foundation course, however the course is intended for individuals who have technical and management background in IT and are looking to explore the IT architect role from a management perspective.
The AMBOK® Guide: Questions related to the AMBOK® Guide.
Do I need to buy the AMBOK®
There is great value in having the book as a handy reference to help you explain, define, and relate IT architecture concepts to technical and non-technical audience.
Why the name AMBOK®
The AMBOK® Guide stands for Architecture Management Body Of Knowledge Guide. It is literally a set of guidelines, processes and frameworks that IT architects and managers can use to help them establish and manage IT architecture.
The establishment of such guides have been used in other disciplines such as the Project Management Institute use of the PMBOK® Guide (www.pmi.org) and the Knowledge Management Institute use of the KMBOK™ Guide (www.kminstitute.org).
This creates a central location where you start building on a knowledge base through research, training, education, and collaboration with others to help advance the topic area.
How can I purchase the AMBOK®
The AMBOK® Guide is available on our Website and www.amazon.com.
