Work with the Experts

 

Our team has an extensive history in helping others successfully deliver software. Our books and articles provide insight into our approach.

 

Training and Workshops

The training and workshop portfolio of The Emphasys Group excels through practical relevance. We attach great importance in practical exercises to convey the proper handling of methods and tools - and thus to ensure learning success. The Emphasys Group provides both onsite and remote training options. We have a selection of existing courses that we offer and can customize or develop a course to meet your specific needs.

Course Catalog

Service-Oriented Analysis and Design Workshop (Brochure)

In this workshop we start by building a foundation of working with Rational Software Architect for WebSphere Software and UML2. Building on this foundation we explore Rational SOMA and SoaML to further our understanding of a best-practice, team-based approach to performing service-oriented analysis and design. The third component to the workshop includes guidance and hands-on experience with the Service-Oriented Analysis and Design Model Accelerator.

Essentials of Agile Modeling (Brochure)

Models help us to simplify problems, gain a shared understanding of solutions and abstract away unnecessary details. Details that could slow us down and lead to non-optimal solutions. In this workshop, we provide you with the essential knowledge needed to enhance the agility of your modeling efforts.

Introduction to Patterns-Based Engineering (Brochure)

In this course we introduce you to Patterns-Based Engineering - supporting you in identifying, creating, managing and using patterns in your software delivery efforts. The goal of this course is to assist a team in understanding the scope of PBE, how it can be customized and successfully adopted.

This workshop was designed and can be delivered by Lee Ackerman, the author of “Patterns-Based Engineering: Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns” (Ackerman/Gonzalez, Addison-Wesley 2010)

Pattern Implementation Workshop (Brochure)

A key idea of Patterns-Based Engineering is to use Pattern Implementations - that is automated versions of patterns. In this course we give you the guidance and skills needed to create and use your own Pattern Implementations.

This workshop was designed and can be delivered by Lee Ackerman, the author of “Patterns-Based Engineering: Successfully Delivering Solutions via Patterns” (Ackerman/Gonzalez, Addison-Wesley 2010)

Introduction to Domain Specific Languages (Brochure)

Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) provide us with another important tool as we look to build Velocity. With a DSL we can raise the level of abstraction when defining a solution - simplifying communications and the overall effort. In this course we introduce you to DSLs, how they are used, tools available for creating and working with DSLs and considerations to keep in mind as you look to adopt the use of DSLs within your organization.

Creating Domain Specific Languages (Brochure)

Building on the foundation from the Introduction to Domain Specific Languages, in this course we look to understand the best practices associated with designing and implementing a DSL. This is an in-depth, hands-on course where we look at creating DSLs using Eclipse as well as the Rational Modelling platform.

Rational Team Concert Customization Workshop (Brochure)

Interested in going beyond the out-of-the-box Rational Team Concert experience? We can help you to understand how to customize, extend and integrate Rational Team Concert.

Rational Asset Manager Customization Workshop (Brochure)

A successful reuse program ensure that assets are easily found, are kept up to date and that assets meet quality expectations. Interested in going beyond the out-of-the-box Rational Asset Manager experience? We can help you to understand how to customize, extend and integrate Rational Asset Manager.
