TOGAF, an Open Group Standard, is a proven enterprise architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organizations to improve business efficiency.
It is the most prominent and reliable enterprise architecture standard, ensuring consistent standards, methods, and
communication among enterprise architecture professionals. Enterprise architecture professionals fluent in TOGAF standards enjoy greater industry credibility, job effectiveness, and career opportunities. TOGAF helps practitioners avoid being locked into proprietary methods, utilize resources more efficiently and effectively, and realize a greater return on investment.
This two-day course is intended as a foundational introduction to the TOGAF framework. TOGAF is the de-facto global standard for Enterprise Architecture.
The Open Group Architecture Forum, comprised of more than 200 enterprises, develops and maintains the TOGAF standard and publishes successive versions at regular intervals. It contains substantial guidance on what to do to establish an architecture practice and then how to use it in connection with planning the longer-term transformation
of the enterprise (strategic architecture), and designing capabilities to support it.
