Learning paths

3 hr 57 min
A Solution Architect is responsible for the successful design, implementation, deployment, and adoption of an overall solution. A Solution Architect ensures that the solution meets the customer’s needs now and in the future. While the Solution Architect may not “click the buttons” during a deployment, they are ultimately responsible for the solution and work closely with the deployment team. This learning path covers the pre-sales and analysis phases of a project to include: What it takes to become a Solution Architect. Discovering customer needs. Proposing a solution. Working with requirements. Performing fit-gap analysis. Instructor-led training (ILT) is scheduled for March 2020 that provides more hands-on activities and both this path and ILT are needed for the exam.
