With many TOGAF Wiki articles being published on a regular basis, you may be overwhelmed with the variety of TOGAF introductions and interpretations that are available. To save you from going through the wide range of TOGAF wiki articles, we have provided a simple TOGAF Introduction below.
A TOGAF introduction: TOGAF is a framework for Enterprise Architecture which provides a comprehensive approach to the design, planning, implementation and governance of enterprise architecture. An expansion of this TOGAF introduction is that TOGAF helps explains how to derive an organisation specific enterprise architecture that successfully addresses business requirements.
While this TOGAF Introduction is just a brief summary of the many TOGAF Wiki articles that are around, our accredited TOGAF certification course covers the full details of the TOGAF framework. During your research around TOGAF you may also come across some TOGAF Certification Wiki articles outlining the requirements to become TOGAF certified. To summarise the findings of the many TOGAF Certification Wiki articles, below is a summary of the requirements to obtain certification.
To become TOGAF certified you will be required to pass the TOGAF exam. The exam consists of two sections, TOGAF 9 Foundation and TOGAF 9 Certified and each section must be passed in order to obtain an overall pass mark. If you fail a section then no certification is awarded.
In order to pass the TOGAF exams and obtain certification, it is highly recommended that you attend our Open Group accredited training course. As our TOGAF training course is accredited by The Open Group, it provides a complete overview of the TOGAF 9.2 framework. Our TOGAF certified instructor has extensive experience as a practicing architect so you will receive insights and real-world scenarios that help cement learning.

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.
