Pragmatic Approach on IT Architect Certification Development the journey


1. Create a Profession (umm, look around you, since 2002) 2. All works must be based on IT Architect practitioners (no vendor companies influenced, since 2002) 3. Develop a baseline on IT Architect skill set (2004-2005) 4. Construct ITABOK-IT Architecture Body of Knowledge (2005-2007) 5. Convert ITABOK to a curriculum for training and teaching IT Architect i.e. ATP-Architect Training Program (2008) 6. Introduce IASA Certification and Board CITA Certification to certify IT Architects (end 2009) 7. Market, prove and deliver IT Architecture business values (2010+) Note: All established professions work this way
