"Hour-for-hour, this is the best seminar I have attended. The instructors thoroughly covered concepts, demonstrated their application effectively and convincingly explained the consequences of poor architectural practice."
Daniel A. Joseph, Ph.D.
Associate Professor, MIS
Rochester Institute of Technology

"This has been an eye opening experience. Receiving this training from the masters will most certainly keep measurable benefits going forward. Stan provided additional concepts and practices around implementation strategies, a critical next step in exploiting the framework ontology - this was great!!! ."
Dennis Johnson

"Quite an enjoyable course.  Would take other courses from Intervista in future."
Jason D'Silva

"The greatest reward from this two-day course was the depth of John's knowledge on the industry in general with regards to the framework. This is the value added, separate from the content."
