4141633 Object Oriented Design using Design Patterns 14 hours Objective: Helping Technical Analysts and Designers to understand how to go through software implementation of the requirements, ensuring traceability between business specifications and the software code. This 2 day training course aims at assisting technical analysts and designers in designing specifications described by the business analysts. After transformation into software component representations, the resulting system components trace system requirements toward software component structures. Finally, these technical specifications are implemented in software code and tested upon component basis. The resulting software components provide good level of reactivity to changes as they allow to trace separately toward the implementation level the system behaviours layer by layer (from the user interfaces toward business objects layer through the application components where the usage choices of the actors are stored. Introduction What is the System Analysis and Design Process? Place of the Analysis and Design activities in the Unified Process (RUP) A panorama of UML 2 diagrams used in the system analysis and design Frameworks for tracing requirements toward software implementation and tests How to transform requirements into component based analysis specifications?

4141637 Efficient Requirement Management using Agile Methods and Agile UML Modeling 21 hours Objective: This training course aims at helping product managers, products owners, business analysts, system architects and developers understand how to efficiently Manage Requirements on the basis of the product vision till guiding developers accurately in implementing them. More in detail, this course aims at assisting product managers in better defining the value propositions of their products on the basis of strategies and stakeholder needs. Business Analysts and product owners understand how to describe requirements of the product backlog then discover appropriate epics and user stories of the system while contributing to the required value creation. Along interactive case study exercises, participants learn how to describe in detail such requirements in order to validate correct understanding of needs and prepare system acceptance tests. Thus, only using a very common and productive UML profile, they learn to structure requirements in order to communicate efficiently with architects and developers through an iterative requirement gathering process.

46 Design Patterns 14 hours There are plenty of tried and tested patterns widely available to everyone. Sometimes it is a matter of changing the names and implementing the pattern in a specific technology. It can saves hundreds of hours, which otherwise would be spent on design and testing. Training Goals This course has two goals: first, it allows you to reuse widely-known patterns, second, it allows you to create and reuse patterns specific to your organization. It helps you to estimate how patterns can reduce costs, systematize the design process and generate a code framework based on your patterns. Audience Software designers, business analysts, project managers, programmers and developers as well as operational managers and software division managers. Course Style The course focuses on use cases and their relationship with a specific pattern. Most of the examples are explained in UML and in simple Java examples (the language can change if the course is booked as a closed course). It guides you through the sources of the patterns as well as showing you how to catalogue and describe patterns which can be reused across your organization. Introductions Patterns and tiered architectures Pattern description Design patterns and design Finding and selecting design patterns Design pattern implementation Well-known patterns Object Creation Factory Builder Factory Method Prototype Singleton Structural Patterns Adapter Bridge Composite Decorator Facade Flyweight Proxy Behavioural Patterns Chain of Responsibility Command Interpreter Iterator Mediator Memento Observer State Strategy Template Method Visitor Observer Creating Patterns To pattern or not to pattern Formal pattern description Organizing the pattern catalogue Particular goal and abstracted goal Publishing your patterns to a pattern community
4079385 Business Modeling for an Agile Enterprise 14 hours Objective: Helping Business Analysts to understand how to efficiently model and validate their business processes and resources in order to increase business agility of their organization on the basis of their target architecture and changing market needs. This 2 day training course aims at helping delegates to learn how to model their business processes and resources in order to adapt them to changes of their goals, strategies and impacted capabilities as part of the target architecture. On the basis of the key elements of business performance (strategies, tactics, KPI, business capabilities, etc...), delegates learn there how to elaborate a vision centric business process and resource cartography. Then, only using the appropriate BPMN and UML notation adapted to their language, they understand how to adapt them to changing strategies, tactics and policies.
