WHY OUR PROGRAM IS UNIQUE

Our IT Business Analyst Bootcamp is custom designed and during the 9-week program, you will receive training from a range of subject matter experts. 

Excel Level 1 Foundations – In this course, you will learn how to create spreadsheets and workbooks that you can use to store, manipulate, and share your data.

Excel Level 2 Analyzing Presenting Data – In this course you will get hands-on experience with guided labs on how to organize table data, present data as charts, and enhance the look and appeal of workbooks by adding graphical objects.

Analyzing Data with Power BIThe creation of data-backed visualizations is a key way data scientists or any professional, can explore, analyze, and report insights and trends from data. Microsoft® Power BI® software is designed for this purpose. Power BI was built to connect to a wide range of data sources and allows users to quickly create visualizations of connected data to gain insights, show trends, and create reports. Power BI’s data connection capabilities and visualization features go far beyond those that can be found in spreadsheets, allowing users to create compelling and interactive worksheets, dashboards, and stories that bring data to life and turn data into thoughtful action.

Business Process Modeling – A standard Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) will provide businesses with the capability of understanding their internal business procedures in a graphical notation and will give organizations the ability to communicate these procedures in a standard manner. Furthermore, the graphical notation will facilitate the understanding of the performance collaborations and business transactions between the organizations. This will ensure that businesses will understand themselves and participants in their business and will enable organizations to adjust to new internal and B2B business circumstances quickly.

Business Process Model and Notation has become the de-facto standard for business processes diagrams. It is intended to be used directly by the stakeholders who design, manage, and realize business processes, but at the same time be precise enough to allow BPMN diagrams to be translated into software process components. BPMN has an easy-to-use flowchart-like notation that is independent of any particular implementation environment.

Data Modeling Workshop – The methodologies discussed are applicable to any relational database environment, including IBM DB2, the Oracle database, Microsoft SQL Server, the open-source MySQL, and PostgreSQL databases as well as other RDBMS platforms. They are also applicable to other database technologies, such as object databases and legacy IMS and IDMS databases. Finally, while we use the free Oracle SQL Developer Data Modeler product as a demonstration modeling tool, one can complete the exercises of this course and apply the techniques learned using any other popular data model diagramming tools, such as IBM InfoSphere Data Architect, CA ErWin Data Modeler, Embarcadero ER/Studio and others.

Deploying Microsoft 365 Teamwork – Content is the most critical digital asset for every organization. In this course, you will learn how to plan, configure, and manage SharePoint Site Collection and OneDrive for Business to enable modern content services that transform the content lifecycle. Specifically, this course discusses the modern SharePoint site structure, such as SharePoint hub sites.  It provides best practices for the adoption and deployment of OneDrive for Business within your organization. It also covers sharing, security, and monitoring in SharePoint Online and OneDrive for business.

DevOps Foundation – DevOps Foundation is a course that provides an introduction to DevOps – the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration, and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals. With DevOps, your improved workflows will result in an improved ability to design, develop, deploy, and operate software and services.

Career services – Our MAX Career Manager works with the students on a group and individual basis to prepare them for their job search.  Activities include seminars on creating Linked In profiles, creating an attention-getting resume, interviewing skills plus an opportunity to hear from boot camp graduates about what the day-to-day world of a developer will be like.  Interactive sessions are held so the students can practice for interviews.  One-on-one meetings are held to fine-tune the student’s resume and job search strategy.

Fundamentals of SQL – This course, SQL Querying: Fundamentals, will teach you to use SQL as a tool to retrieve the information you need from databases.

BA Foundations – This course gives a clear understanding and total immersion into all the facets of the business analyst role, including a thorough walk-through of the various domain/knowledge areas that make up the business analysis profession. Beginner and intermediate business analysts will learn to improve elicitation, analysis, and documentation of requirements.

Effective Project Management – Effective Project Management workshop is designed to completely cover the fundamentals of managing projects. It introduces you to more complex topics in project management while it deepens your understanding of planning and controlling processes.

Introduction to Web Development – In this module, the student will be introduced to what a web designer does and how to get started in web development; how the web works; the anatomy of a web page; and some important concepts the student needs to understand.

ITIL Foundation – ITIL® Foundation Course will teach you the fundamentals of ITIL® and get you ready for the next steps.

Scrum Foundation – You will learn the mechanics of Scrum and how to overcome the complexity of dealing with team-based collaboration and self-organization. With other attendees, you work as a team in a series of Sprints to build a software application – and deal with real-life problems. The mechanics, roles, and principles of Scrum are made clear during the exercises. You will experience common missteps and misunderstandings allowing you to grow a higher awareness of the associated symptoms. In addition, you will return to work with tips to identify common pitfalls and team dysfunctions.

Scrum Simulation Workshop – This workshop utilizes an immersion learning approach, along with role-playing, that allows students to practice the techniques as they learn.

Students will learn how to connect to various data sources, build a variety of basic charts, and combine those insights into a usable dashboard. Students will also learn about sharing and publishing options.

Introduction to XML – With your HTML knowledge, you have a solid foundation for working with markup languages. However, unlike HTML, XML is more flexible, allowing you to create custom tags to store and share data across different systems. This course introduces the fundamentals of XML and its related technologies so that you can create your own markup documents.

Writing Use Cases – This Requirements Analysis and Use Cases course provides a strong foundation in the mechanics of use case diagramming and writing textual descriptions of use cases. In this highly interactive workshop, you will learn how to enhance and refine your use case skills, how to involve your stakeholders in the use case process, and how to develop use cases that provide valuable information to the designers and testers. Use cases that meet the needs of designers can be too technical and too detailed for other stakeholders. Use cases that satisfy business users are usually not very helpful to designers and testers. How do you satisfy these two disparate interests? And how do you handle the details like business rules, data validations, and user interface specifications?

Writing User Stories – Writing User Stories Workshop will demonstrate how to manage, write, and communicate requirements in an Agile Environment.  Participants learn to collaborate and identify business needs and communicate those needs through User Stories.
