Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is a framework for enterprise architecture that provides an approach for designing, planning, implementing, and governing an enterprise information technology architecture.TOGAF is a high level approach to design. It is typically modeled at four levels: Business, Application, Data, and Technology. It relies heavily on modularisation, standardisation, and already existing, proven technologies and products.
In 2016, 80% of Global 50 companies and 60% of Fortune 500 companies used the framework. TOGAF is free for organisations to use internally, but not for commercial purposes. However, businesses can have tools, software or training programs certified by The Open Group. There are currently eight certified TOGAF tools and 71 accredited courses offered from 70 organisations.
Formal qualifications in TOGAF are at two levels, both available through CM Training:
Ensures that an individual understands Enterprise Architecture along with core concepts and terminology of TOGAF.
Further to the Foundation qualification, this establishes that the candidate is able to analyse and apply their knowledge to business problems.
Gaining TOGAF Certified status automatically confers free membership of the Association of Enterprise Architects.
The Open Group states that TOGAF is intended to:
Ensure everyone speaks the same language
Avoid lock-in to proprietary solutions by standardizing on open methods for enterprise architecture
Save time and money, and utilize resources more effectively
Achieve demonstrable ROI
TOGAF’s business benefits
TOGAF helps organisations implement software technology in a structured and organized way, with a focus on governance and meeting business objectives. Software development relies on collaboration between multiple departments and business units both inside and outside of IT, and TOGAF helps address any issues around getting key stakeholders on the same page.
The TOGAF certification is especially useful for enterprise architects, since it’s a common methodology and framework used in the field. It’s also a vendor-neutral certification that has global recognition. Earning your TOGAF certification will demonstrate your ability to use the TOGAF framework to implement technology and manage enterprise architecture. It will validate your abilities to work with TOGAF as it applies to data, technology, enterprise applications and business goals.
