What is TOGAF?

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), is used by organizations to design an IT infrastructure that is adapted to meet their requirements. TOGAF ensures that their systems can stand the test of time and evolve with the organization’s complexity by implementing consistency across the technology landscape and providing alignment between different teams.
TOGAF was created in 1995 and is currently maintained by The Open Group, an independent industry association. It was build on an earlier framework known as Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management (TAFIM), originally devised by the U.S. Defence Dept.

Is the TOGAF certification worth it?

TOGAF is of particular interest to enterprise architects, solution architects, IT architects and software architects. The job of an architect is to ensure that the different technology teams across the organization don’t hinder each other, but instead work seamlessly.
Having a TOGAF Certification can get you ahead in your career. Being a globally recognized credential, it is used by the top leading enterprises of the world. It shows your commitment as an enterprise architect, certified by a neutral vendor that have the core knowledge about the methodology and framework.
The Open Group TOGAF Certification Program has allowed more than 87,000 Enterprises architects and trainers around the world to demonstrate their proven knowledge of the framework.

Who is the TOGAF certification for?

The TOGAF certification is for anyone who is responsible for the architecture function within your organization, including respective Business and subject matter expert stakeholders and peers.
According to The Open Group, TOGAF certification is:
• Used by the world’s leading enterprises to certify a common body of core knowledge about the methodology and framework
• A trusted, vendor-neutral, globally recognized and portable credential
• Valuable in demonstrating to employers and peers your commitment to enterprise architecture as a discipline
• An outstanding career move and a foundational certification in the career of any Enterprise Architect.

What is new in TOGAF 9.2?

Launched in 2018, TOGAF 9.2 is an update designed to provide better organization of documents that define the framework in the form of a TOGAF library. This version corrects errors, removes obsolete content and improves guidance and document structures. Key enhancements made in this version include updates to the Business Architecture and the Content Metamodel. All of these changes make the TOGAF 9.2 framework easier to maintain and use.

How Does Vocabulary Test Help with Spelling Words?

 

Haven’t we all made silly spelling mistakes while writing? Like, writing “beleive” instead of “believe.” Don’t worry, it’s quite common. However, when it comes to misspelling unknown words, things are a bit different. In these cases, you are basically guessing the probable spelling.

This issue is very common among young students as they tend to have a smaller vocabulary. A lot of students struggle to amass an above-average vocabulary.

So, if a school-going student wants to have fewer spelling mistakes while writing, building up a substantial vocabulary collection will help a lot.

As you can see, spelling skills and vocabulary are closely connected. Well, you probably knew that from all along. But, did you know a linear learning model to have a compelling spelling skill starts with a vocabulary test?

Yes!

That’s what we would focus on today – the correlation between a vocabulary test and spelling words and that linear learning model.

 

Test Your Current Vocabulary Level First

Let’s say you want to have excellent spelling skill with a minimum number of spelling mistakes. A full-proof strategy would be knowing all the everyday words so that you don’t come across too many unknown words.

Although there’s been a lot of debate on the exact number of words an average native speaker knows, we can assume the 20,000 words to be a sweet spot.

Now that you know your target number, you need to know your current conditions too.

That’s where the importance of vocabulary comes to play!

A decent vocabulary tester will help you figure out the estimated number. Of course, no vocabulary tester can go word-by-word to give you the exact number.

So, what can be your solution here?

There are a few good sources, but I prefer using the SpellQuiz vocabulary tester. They offer tons of premium spelling sessions and useful tools for enhancing spelling, listening, and vocabulary skills.

 

Create a Plan to Develop Vocabulary

We need to focus on two things at the same time here – vocabulary build-up and spelling. Rather than taking different approaches to work on these two aspects, you should combine them together.

How so?

Think of it like this – developing vocabulary simply means to have a complete grasp of the words. And, if you manage to memorize the spelling of those words, you’re good to go!

So, focus on increasing your vocabulary properly, and you’ll eventually master spelling words like Spelling Bees!

Now, let’s get on that planning part.

You can use many use various strategies –

  • Flashcards
  • Use mobile or desktop apps
  • Read books (fictions for fun!)
  • Watch foreign language movies/TV shows with subtitles

You should use multiple variants of vocabulary increasing strategies at the same time.

However, the key to success is not tied to the choice of exercise method but the regularity of the practice. You need to take part in those regularly. You might not get enough time to practice every day, but you need to have several sessions in a week.

 

Use Pen and Paper for Better Spelling Skills

This is one of the common mistakes that we all are guilty of. We think verbal learning techniques are good enough to memorize anything, especially spelling.

It’s a dangerous path to choose!

While you are actively taking part in vocabulary enhancing practice or spelling practice, have a piece of paper and pen nearby. Our brains help us to retain any information better if we write it down. Sadly, typing words with your keyboard will not have the same results.

 

Take Help from Online

It’s the era of technology. We all have smartphones and personal computer. What do we do with them? Gaming, using social media platforms, watching movies or YouTube videos?

If you are struggling with spelling words, you can use all the “entertainment” devices for education and learning too.

As I said earlier, I prefer SpellQuiz when it comes to spelling and vocabulary practice. They have vocabulary tester and a plethora of spelling practice sessions.

That mean’s after having an estimation of your vocabulary collection, you can take part in the spelling practice sessions. They have categorized the spelling sessions grade-wise, from grade 1 to grade 12 and even adults.

In these spelling sessions, you’ll hear sentences and will be asked to type the sentence flawlessly. After you do that, their automated tool will show you the number of correct spellings and will also show you your mistakes.

The best part is that the dictations are done by human voice artists, not those weird bot voices!

If you enroll in their premium subscription, you can access your personalized dashboard. This dashboard gives you a detailed result of your entire practice sessions since day one.

 

Final Words

You can think of SpellQuiz as your practice partner who gives all the essential materials keeps track of your progress.

So, start with a vocabulary test to get better at spelling words and SpellQuiz will help you all along the way!

As participants in the IBM Digital Badge Program, we’re proud to offer the full range of over 400 different software, server, and digital skill badges to all of our clients as part of our roster of online, remote learning courses. IBM accreditation badges are a great personal marketing tool – ideal for your CV, websites, portfolio, interviews, and networking.


What Are IBM Badges And How Do They Work?

IBM Badges are online representations of your final achievement(s) while learning and training – and those of thousands of other IT professionals. A full IBM badge portfolio assures employees, employers, and clients that you’re trusted and verified as a trained developer or administrator for the area(s) of IT you’re looking to work in. As all awarded badges are stored in a name-linked, centralised database, you can back up your claims with solid proof of your talents – underwritten by IBM itself. The IBM Skills Registry tracks course completion, attainment, and skillsets for all IT trainees signed up to their scheme. When you meet a course’s requirements to a good enough IBM-set standard, and your course provider verifies that you have, you earn another new badge.

How Do I Earn IBM Badges With CourseMonster?

CourseMonster is now officially authorised to issue badges on behalf of IBM. When we think you’ve met the requirements to earn an achievement, our badge officers can review your performance and add a badge to your online profile via IBM’s dedicated online, global badge dashboard, Acclaim. This easy process is repeatable for every online course you take with us.

Starting this summer, IBM awards will be made available for all Acclaim-linked, taught IT courses from CourseMonster. Send us an email or form request with your name, course, and reference number, and we’ll cross-check if you’re eligible for an award. You’ll also need to opt-in to our data privacy agreement for us to register you with Acclaim. Expect to wait for up to four weeks from the date of your request before CourseMonster can confirm your award via email. To ask for badge verification, get in touch via phone or email today.

Further Information

IBM is always updating its catalogue of badge-eligible courses. You can check what’s new and relevant to you on IBM’s list of earnable awards. With thousands of options available from CourseMonster, we guarantee you’ll find the IBM IT training schemes you need to thrive.

Whether you’re an established IT specialist or are planning to forge a successful career in the industry, staying ahead of the game with up to date training is vital to your success. With nearly 70% of businesses migrating their core applications to the Cloud, Cloud computing is the fastest-growing market segment in the IT industry, with increasing numbers of roles requiring in-depth knowledge and understanding of Cloud platforms.

Investing in high-quality training is, therefore, central to building a successful IT career. With Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS both jostling for prime position in the Cloud computing market, which platform is best to choose when designing your training programme?

Azure vs AWS: The Key Differences

Both Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS are popular Cloud platforms throughout the IT industry, with Azure occupying approximately 30% of application workloads, compared to AWS’s 42%. But what are the key differences?

Features And Integration

Organisations that are heavily reliant on Microsoft applications may opt for Azure to gain significant discounts on their investment, while AWS integrates seamlessly with other Amazon platforms and products.

AWS offers a greater range of features and configurations, with considerable flexibility and customisation to integrate with many third-party tools and applications. For professionals familiar with Windows, Azure is simple to use as it is built on the same platform, while integration with on-site Windows servers with Cloud is possible to make a hybrid environment. AWS, by comparison, is less open to third-party or private Cloud providers.

Certifications

Certifications are central to developing your lifelong career prospects, so it’s essential to understand the difference between the two platforms.

Azure certifications are laid out in a progressive manner from fundamental to expert, so are ideal for professionals who wish to gain expertise through their daily work. You can commence at a level appropriate to your experience and existing skills, and the certifications are valid for life.

AWS offers certifications at four levels, from foundation to speciality, in five different areas: architecting, developing, operations, Cloud, and specialties. Unlike Azure, AWS certifications are valid only for two years. A discounted examination must then be taken to retain the standard.

Azure vs AWS: Future-Proof Your Career With CourseMonster

At CourseMonster, we provide in-depth expert training in Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS, giving you the essential knowledge and skills to work with either Cloud computing platform. Courses include core competencies in terminology, concepts, benefits, and deployment options, developing the knowledge and skills to work confidently with Cloud computing platforms – and giving your career prospects an indispensable boost.

Investing in a global software developer such as Oracle is a strategic decision that can help shape your business operations. However, ongoing staff training is vital to enable employees to develop the knowledge and skills to achieve higher levels of productivity – the key to the overall success of any business. Different training formats customized to the modern learner’s experience, enable the rapid absorption of critical information, while structured training matched to the different job roles in your business helps achieve consistency of approach between departments.

In-Depth Knowledge Generates Greater Efficiency

The effectiveness of a company’s IT platforms can dictate who wins and who loses in the global economy. With a considerable number of software platforms available, identifying which tools will most effectively support your business can be challenging. Business leaders sometimes focus only on the most apparent benefits without considering the deeper implications that a platform like Oracle can offer.

Efficiency is a matter of maximising outputs, and reducing costs. By implementing bespoke staff training in Oracle, employees become more knowledgeable about the platform and its capabilities, establishing more effective policies and practices to boost productivity throughout your organisation.

Training in Oracle is more effective and beneficial when the programme combines your business’s objectives with the employees’ skillset, so that weakness can be addressed, and greater knowledge of the platform can develop efficient working practices. Oracle Certifications are a sign of experience and proficiency that can support colleagues as they work towards achieving their individual objectives within your business while increasing their lifetime value to your company.

Meeting The Needs Of End-Users

Employees often have multiple roles and responsibilities, so staying abreast of product development is a challenge. With a variety of software solutions across the Oracle platform, including Customer Relationship Management, Supply Chain Management, Human Capital Management, and Enterprise Resource Planning, a modular approach to staff training enables colleagues to stay at the forefront of their industry.

CourseMonster: For Your Oracle Training Needs

Oracle Certifications and training courses for administrators, developers, and end-users can ensure your team receives the targeted support they need while achieving business objectives.

Effective project management procedures and technologies have transformed global business. However, in a world of rapidly shifting trends and economic instability, yesterday’s qualification is not always completely future-proof. That’s why PRINCE2®, the world’s most recognised project management certification, has released its updated PRINCE2® 6th edition.

Reflecting the latest developments in theory, as well as the pressing need to adapt to an unprecedented climate of uncertainty, PRINCE2® 6th edition offers proactive upskilling that brings project management capabilities in line with current demands.

What’s Different About The PRINCE2® 6th Edition?

In a significant – although not radical – overhaul, PRINCE2® 6th edition is about positive enhancement. The course introduces the topics in an accessible, easy-to-understand manner, even when the subjects themselves are advanced. Areas that set this 6th edition apart include adapting projects to external change, tailoring projects at any stage, and bringing together themes and principles. These are cemented in the fundamental PRINCE2 philosophy, which has an emphasis on ensuring agility, flexibility, and survivability.

This candidate-centric approach is combined with an exam that is orchestrated for the maximum potential for success. This means multiple responses, assertion reasoning, and no negative questions. At the same time, there are fewer questions, giving candidates more time to show what they’re capable of. It’s a strategy designed to bring out the best in people, so that skills are optimised.

Who’s PRINCE2® 6th Edition Aimed At?

PRINCE2® 6th edition is aimed at project managers from any industry, and this includes freelancers, contractors and consultants. Many candidates will be looking to up-skill from their existing PRINCE2® 5th edition certification. However, as the earlier version is gradually phased out, PRINCE2® 6th edition will become the gold standard.

What Are The Benefits?

Agility is crucial to success. During times of economic and socio-political change, companies in every sector need to be more flexible than ever before. This means being able to operate with confidence during uncertainty, being capable of an assured response to unpredictable external forces, and creating a leaner and more secure approach. With PRINCE2® 6th edition, everyone can meet challenges with the confidence of knowing that project managers are at the cutting edge of their game.

Take Part In Our Free PRINCE2 6th Edition Webinar

Recent years have witnessed the enormous growth of cloud computing – and there’s no sign that this exponential growth is slowing down. According to US communications giant CenturyLink, the global cloud computing market is likely to be worth an incredible $411bn by the end of 2020. Cloud computing is here to stay for service providers and end users alike, so there’s strong competition from certification providers to equip IT professionals with the skills to earn a profitable living as cloud administrators, developers or architects.

IT cloud certifications offer several benefits for anyone looking to carve a lucrative and successful career in cloud computing, including higher earning potential, increased job opportunities, and faster skills progression. Understanding which cloud computing certification is best for you is important, so consider the following cloud courses that we offer at CourseMonster.

1. Google Cloud Essentials

Suitable for people who are new to cloud computing, Google Cloud Essentials (GCE) provides invaluable hands-on practice of Google Cloud’s services and tools. Even if you have little prior cloud knowledge, GCE can provide you with useful, practical experience that you can transfer to your first basic projects.

Short videos provide users with a guide to essential concepts in a series of ‘labs,’ covering skills such as writing cloud shell commands, load balancing, and running applications on Kubernetes Engine. Previous experience with command-line interfaces or shell environments is recommended, in addition to system administration.

2. AWS Professional Systems Operations (Professional)

Amazon Web Services certification programme is offered at three levels – foundation, associate, and professional. AWS certifications prepare IT professionals for career progression to developer, operations, and architect roles.

AWS Professional Systems Operations (Professional) is for professionals who have at least two years’ experience designing and launching cloud environments on Amazon Web Services. Requisite knowledge for this certification includes costing, network design, data storage and security, cloud migration, hybrid architecture, and scalability.

3. Cisco CCNA Cloud

Cisco is renowned for its robust training and certification programme, which is targeted at several levels of expertise. CCNA Cloud is an entry-level credential for IT professionals working in cloud administration or engineering. It provides the training to progress to higher roles, supporting their company as it evolves with the changing face of business technology.

Applicants should have a sound understanding of cloud infrastructure, cloud networking, storage solutions, reporting, and monitoring. Assessment is by two examinations, leading to a three-year CCNA Cloud award.

4. IBM Cloud Training

At CourseMonster, we’re the only accredited delivery partner to provide IBM training in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Africa and the Middle East.

Cloud computing is great for sharing files, keeping programs and user profiles consistent between machines, and rapidly transferring metrics and data to a central server.

If you need remote oversight of a sprawling database, a cloud structure is often the way to go. Online cloud services serve as a safe, simple way to access your important files and co-ordinate group projects across a global, scattered network of IT staff. Cloud computing can also help make your business greener by streamlining your resource and energy usage, cutting costs in the process.

However, finding the best cloud computing platforms for your business can be tricky. You need to know what the different cloud platforms can do, how they do it, and what additional service they offer your IT development and frontline employees.

Here’s a short but snappy guide to six of the most popular cloud software solutions out there at the moment.

1. Microsoft Azure

Microsoft Azure is Microsoft’s premier cloud data management suite. Azure has been available since March 2014. The program was released as a professional-quality software suite for managing the remote use of Microsoft data centres by third-party clients and accredited Microsoft partners. It’s fully compatible with all the latest releases of Windows 10.

Azure specialises in data integration over light standalone storage (for which Microsoft offers the free OneDrive service). Azure gives administrative users access to remote virtual machines, online app management, heavy-duty data storage and management, and web hosting, as well as a vast range of data analytic and aggregation tools aimed at market data analysts. Azure also offers an internal, secure messaging system and push notifications for closed, remote networks on mobile devices.

Azure is ideal for mid to large-scale businesses looking for an all-in-one remote data solution, primarily for Windows devices. Its sheer versatility makes it an attractive choice for clients in almost every sector.

2. Cloudera

Cloudera is a standalone cloud suite aimed more at specialised, dedicated systems that rely on machine learning and require a high level of security. It can be used to remotely store and manage data sets and key programs for intelligent machinery and smart megastructures, all overseen from a single dashboard.

While it requires a degree of specialisation, integration, and training to work well, Cloudera is the platform of choice for high-tech, high-end customers in manufacturing, healthcare, and logistics. Cloudera offers a secure, dedicated server guarantee for critical, sensitive data, such as that used to make life-or-death decisions, and can incorporate modular, algorithmic learning and processing add-ons.

3. Oracle

Oracle is one of the oldest cloud computing companies around. The software giant released their first remote-storage capable version of Oracle Database in 1979. Oracle Database is now fully cloud-capable and can upgrade older data sets to the cloud. They also offer cloud integration and remote access for the majority of their products, as well as traditional, dedicated remote storage for fixed, static file sets. While Oracle isn’t the first name in cloud computing, they’ve got a solid bedrock of remote expertise underpinning what they do.

4. IBM Cloud Services

IBM Cloud Services refers to the broad family of utilities that IBM offers to promote remote functionality and storage. They tend to market their cloud computing capabilities to big business and sales departments, more than individual IT admins and power users. IBM Cloud Services provide heavy-duty, secure storage for big business and personal clients. IBM offer bespoke, remote program access, delivering precise business analytics tailored to the needs of each client.

5. CloudLinux

CloudLinux OS is the oddball of popular cloud hosting and management platforms. Accessed via a standalone Linux operating system, CloudLinux is a fully-online service, giving administrators precise control over web hosting and shared network hosting environments. In this role, it allows personalisation of web profiles and dedicated data management. However, CloudLinux lacks many of the analytical and comms tools seen in other cloud packages. It’s also based on the Linux kernel, which few desktop computers and mobile devices worldwide use unaltered, limiting the capacity for alteration. While Linux provides many vital services to Windows and Android machines, direct program compatibility and transferability may also be an issue.

6. Google Cloud

Google Cloud is a paid cloud service tied to the sprawling Google empire of free utility programs and online tools. Its main strengths are its easy integration and extremely broad focus. Aimed at being a go-anywhere, do-anything tool, Google Cloud offers analytics, storage, and dynamic data display and management. It’s one of the few large-scale cloud platforms to focus directly on audio/video management, promoting rapid transmission and updates of video, audio, and visual content via centralised storage and curation.

For this reason and others, Google Cloud is popular with public-facing retail companies – particularly as Google offers its own, machine-learning capable retail analysis package remotely to corporate users. However, more specialised and private businesses may be better off using a bespoke solution to cloud storage.
