The TOGAF Framework (The Open Group Architecture Framework) is a framework for enterprise architecture that provides an approach for designing, planning, implementing and governing an enterprise information technology architecture. The TOGAF architecture framework is a high level approach to design and is typically modelled at four levels: Business, Application, Data and Technology. The TOGAF enterprise architecture framework relies heavily on modularisation, standardisation and leveraging existing proven technologies and products.
The benefit of using the TOGAF Framework is that once implemented it will speed up and simplify architecture development, ensure more complete coverage of the designed solution, and make certain that the architecture selected allows for future growth in response to the needs of the business. The TOGAF architecture framework enables you to design, evaluate and build the right architecture for your organisation.
The framework TOGAF uses is highly complex but can be broken down into three main parts:
The TOGAF framework makes a distinction between the types of architectures that you can build. According to the TOGAF architecture framework there are four types of architectures that are commonly accepted as subsets of the overall enterprise architecture:
The TOGAF framework supports all of these architectures to enable you to create a successful enterprise architecture.
Our TOGAF 9.2 training course provides complete coverage of the TOGAF framework. The course is designed to make it easy to understand the modules that form the TOGAF 9.2 curriculum so that you can pass the TOGAF 9.2 (Foundation & Practitioner) certification exams. Our TOGAF course is delivered by a certified TOGAF instructor who has extensive experience as a practicing architect so they can provide insights and real-world scenarios that help cement learning.
"For passing the TOGAF exam this course is definitely a must do as the practical scenarios laid out in the class makes it easy to do the scenarios in the exam." - Enterprise Architect
"Attending this course saved me about six months of study. This course is a faster and more effective mechanism to absorb the material than self study alone." - Major Telco; Senior IT Business Analyst
"Fantastic experience from beginning to end. The instructor's knowledge and anecdotes helped take the course to another level. I now feel prepared to undertake the TOGAF exams." – Solution Architect

TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2 is a great improvement on Version 9.1. The materials and flow in the latest release now has a more understandable, direct bearing on architecture practice and architecture consulting in general. The latest release supports the primacy of business thinking in architecture rather than a focus on IT, which was often how enterprise architecture has been seen.
The major changes that have been released in TOGAF Standard Version 9.2 include;
TOGAF 9 certified practitioners do not have to sit a new exam (as was the case with the bridge from 8 to 9). The additional or changed material is extremely useful and valuable to learn. If you would like to show that you have “up-to-date knowledge”, then The Open Group has introduced the TOGAF Essentials 2018 credential that leads to an open badge.
