EA MDG Technology Workshop

Course Description:

This workshop teaches delegates how to customise Enterprise Architect using profiles. Delegates learn how to build an MDG technology containing profiles for custom diagram types, toolbox pages, elements and relationships. Element profiles can define colours, fonts, shapes and tagged value custom properties.

Enterprise Architect


Delegates should have a good working knowledge of Enterprise Architect.


Enterprise Architect

For webinar delivery delegates require a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect with an Internet connection (a headset can be helpful). If you wish to test your environment join a test WebEx meeting:

A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: It is also helpful to have a mouse as this makes creating diagrams much easier.

Course Style:

40% theory, 60% practical
This workshop comprises a set of targeted hands-on exercises to build an MDG technology containing profiles that customise Enterprise Architect.

Delegate Handouts:

Each delegate receives a booklet containing all the workshop slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Booklets also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the workshop each delegate receives a certificate.
