To ensure customer success with digital transformation strategies, Dell Technologies Education Services (DTES) is enhancing the Dell Technologies Proven Professional Certification Program to establish leadership in transformational certification offerings, beyond product certifications. The Dell Technologies Certified Enterprise Architect (DCEA) validates the skills, knowledge and experience of IT/Solution, Business, and Enterprise Architects.

The certification validates a candidate's ability to gather and interpret requirements, plan, create, and document an enterprise architecture or design for a client that meets the customers’ strategic business goals.

There are 3 levels of certification in the DCEA Certification: 

  • Level 1: able to perform with assistance/supervision, with a wide range of appropriate skills, as a contributing architect
  • Level 2: able to perform independently and take responsibility for delivery of systems and solutions as lead architect
  • Level 3: has significant breadth and depth of impact on the business through the application of IT architecture

The DCEA program:

  • Allows DCEA certified individuals to differentiate themselves in the marketplace as having demonstrable mastery of enterprise architecture 
  • Allows client organizations to verify that practitioners have the necessary knowledge and skills to successfully design enterprise architectures 
  • Enables organizations (clients and partners) that require this level and breath of design benefit from a body of practitioners that have validated their knowledge and skills relevant to performing the task

Benefits of becoming a DCEA:

  • Industry recognized certification that represents an ideal mechanism for demonstrating knowledge, success, and overall business capabilities
  • Validation of advanced level understanding of enterprise architecture skills
  • Member of an elite community with unique, transformative skills
  • Dell Technologies employees can become dual certified with The Open Group Certified Architect

There are two steps that must be completed to obtain the DCEA certification: an approved application submission and a successful board review. This form is for the first step: Application Submission.  

Requirements to submit:

  • Background should reflect 8 years experience as an Enterprise Architect (recommended)
  • A project reference name and contact information
  • Confirmation of payment of initial submission fee (if applicable)
  • Completed Project Submission Document
     

 As there is no way to know if all of the required supporting documentation has been included to allow for a thorough and clear analysis of the submitted design, it will be assumed that whatever supporting documents have been included in the project submission document constitutes a complete set of supporting documents. If the application packet is found to be missing a component, other than supporting documentation addressed above, the candidate will be notified and have two full business days to submit the file(s). If the application remains incomplete, the application will be rejected and no refund of the application fee will be given. No review will begin until the fee is paid and the application is considered complete.
 

All of the Initial Application and Board Review details can be found on our webpage.
