No Magic Announces First Online UPDM Training Course

New Training Program Helps Enterprise Architects and System Engineers Plan and Implement Complex Systems Using UPDM Standards and the MagicDraw UPDM Plug-in

Plano, TX – May 26, 2010: No Magic, Inc., the leading global provider of integrated modeling software and services, today announced a new UPDM online training program (a first in the industry) designed to teach enterprise architects, system engineers, or anyone with enterprise- wide systems, everything they need to know about the Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM) using MagicDraw.

UPDM is a modeling standard developed by the OMG, that supports both the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) and the UK’s Ministry of Defense Architecture Framework (MODAF). No Magic’s online training program focuses on the planning, design and implementation of complex systems architecture using UPDM standards and the MagicDraw UPDM plug-in. It teaches students how to implement and customize the DoD Architecture Framework, and it addresses related standards such as UML 2, SoaML, and SysML, where they apply to UPDM.

No Magic’s UPDM online training program enables students to learn at their own pace, anywhere around the globe, at a time of their choosing. The estimated time to complete the class is 40 hours, yet participants will receive 90-day online access to complete the course, which includes 8 sections, 32 modules, 3 demos, 45 workshops, and a final exam.

“UPDM is gaining popularity amongst enterprise architects because of its powerful standards-based ability to deliver increasingly complex architectures. This course provides the most comprehensive and convenient forum to learn everything that’s required to plan and implement complex systems using M
agicDraw functionality and the MagicDraw UPDM plug-in,” said Jim Rice, No Magic’s Director of Professional Services.
