Student Reviews - Architectural Thinking

"Great course. Totally according to the content, perhaps it would be good to specify that is an introduction to Architectural Thinking" - Mauricio Ruiz - 5 stars

"Good, high level introduction to Architectural Thinking across all aspects of the Enterprise Architecture discipline." - John Gardner - 5 stars

"Extremely good. Learned the very foundational aspects of the EA. Answered may queries that was carrying for a long time. Extremely good presentation. EA concepts are clearly explained." - Vijay Sounderadas - 5 stars

"Very nice overview of the Architecture Thinking.
I like it.
Architecture is an art of thinking, not a technical field by itself. Yet it is not detached from the solutions, coding, and actual operation of the ICT system, well said!
For me Architecture Thinking means; we do not Architect for the Architecture sake, but to address & fix real problems. So, it's not about TOGAF or any framework, it is about applying the appropriate approach in the situation where we happen to be, at the time we have to apply this "thinking" process. TOGAF and other frameworks are here to help, but not to constrain us." - Goran Stevanovic - 5 stars

"A excellent overview of a complex field. This course is an excellent overview and I have found it very useful. It is largely agnostic of architecture framework (although TOGAF is mentioned a few times) and doesn't get lost in the detail of a particular method, language or tool. Roger understands the field to the extent that he is able to explain the complex nature of architecture in simple terms. Whether you are new to the field, or a seasoned professional, I can highly recommend this course." - Nick Trosh - 5 stars

"Wholesome, Practical and Insightful. The delivery was clear and practical. The visuals and materials are apt. Excellent delivery." - Lukumon Balogun - 5 stars

Sanjay S Ray - 5 stars

"Very clear and thought provoking!" - Bogdan Gluszkowski - 5 stars

I may be considered as a very experienced IT security specialist, in years who naturally found herself in designing the corporate IT security infrastructure.
But as a strong believer of "each topic needs special, focused attention" approach, I'm trying to understand what it needs to be a real IT security architect in real, not accidentially.
So this course was my first step to understanding.
Thank you for this free opportunity of starting to learn." - Mehtap Koçak - 3 stars

"I really enjoyed the course. The introduction to Architectural Thinking was an eye opener. Thank you." - George Morton - 5 stars

"Excellent summary and insight About EA. Overview of it made simple and effective." - Eduardo Pulido - 5 stars

"From Architectural Thinking To Architectural Practice! Many thanks, Mr. Evernden, for such useful course! Any action should followed by a right thinking. Known, very difficult to change a thinking from an unstructural to a structural. I wish you many new courses and followers!" - Berik Orazov 5 stars
