This course eases the learning curve of adopting the framework for any contributor to the enterprise’s repository of business and technical knowledge. The comprehensive nature of the ZF makes it a challenge to maintain a global picture of all the links and inter-dependencies between Cells. This is addressed by providing a complete end-to-end example throughout the training. Getting the entire team ‘on the same page’ in terms of both the precise modeling semantics of each Cell as well as the responsibilities of each member for providing its proper content is indispensable for a successful adoption of the framework.
In addition, since the framework itself does not define a meta-model, the training class will suggest alternative notations for populating the Cells from the defaults proposed by Enterprise Architect.
