Adopting the Cisco Business Architecture Approach-DTBAA

Categories: Cisco, Guaranteed To Run™

Duration: 1 day

As businesses undertake a digital transformation, working towards a journey to deliver on the promises of the digital business roadmap, it is incumbent upon the technology partners to suitably deliver value above and beyond the technology components. This journey from the Cisco side began in 2013 with the launch of the business outcomes sales approach, and is now evolving into a Business Architecture lead process, expanding the scope, and increasing the role of the Cisco Business Architect in the process.

The DTBAA - Adopting the Cisco Business Architecture Approach is a 1 day, instructor led training that is the beginning of the journey to become a Cisco Business Architect. Even if your intent is not to complete the journey, the DTBAA curricula and the corresponding exam will help you understand the role of the Cisco Business Architect, and the team responsibilities, the concepts of the four pillars of Business Architecture (Business Acumen, Enterprise Architecture, consultative skills, and entrepreneurship). Regardless of the end goal, the DTBAA program is an outstanding level setting in the age of Digital Transformation.
