About the journey

The demand for solution architects has been steadily on the rise in the last few years.

Learning resources are abundantly available for solution architects, but it's hard to see the forest through the trees and to build and maintain their knowledge. They may be the only architect within the IT department or are part of a very small expert group.

As a result knowledge sharing is difficult, they don’t feel challenged in their day-to-day work and they are not exposed to new insights in their domain. 

AE’s Boost your architecture skills aims support those who are or those who strive to become solution architects through a combination of Training, Workshops, Hybrid Learning, Community and Coaching, divided into 9 learning modules.
