Concept Development Skills

Gartner and IBM tell us that 60% of Information Technology (IT) projects are still running over time, over budget, and/or under functionality. They recommend IT gets a better hold on clients’ functionality expectations earlier, though this is difficult when line-of-business clients do not get IT involved sufficiently early as they do not believe IT is interested in or equipped to perform real business problem-solving.

The Concept Development Skills program(s) provide corporate Analysts and Planners as well as IT BAs, Architects, CRMs, and Team Leads with techniques, credibility, and confidence for involvement as early as possible in ‘problem definition’ - Phase 1 of the Software/System Development Life Cycle.

Solution Architecture Security Practitioner (SASP)


It is rare for todays’ IT systems to have no security facilities within them. Many organisations, or projects, cannot afford to have an assigned security architect. Yet many solutions or technical architects do not have a good understanding of Information Assurance (IA). This means that many systems are being designed and built that do not mitigate many of the current and emerging threats from today’s interconnected IT world. The Solution Architecture Security Practitioner (SASP) course is targeted at Solution Architects wishing to know how to design secure systems and gain the knowledge of how to architect into a system a wide range of security controls.
