TOGAF in its Enterprise Edition remains what it has always been, namely an architecture framework – a set of methods and tools for developing a broad range of different IT architectures. It enables IT users to design, evaluate, and build the right architecture for their organization, and reduces the costs of planning, designing, and implementing architectures based on open systems solutions.
The key to TOGAF® remains a reliable, practical method – the TOGAF® Architecture Development Method (ADM) – for defining business needs and developing an architecture that meets those needs, utilizing the elements of TOGAF® and other architectural assets available to the organization.
As governance has become an increasingly visible requirement for organisational management, the adoption of governance into TOGAF®, aligns the framework with current business best practice and also ensures a level of visibility, guidance, and control that will support all architecture stakeholder requirements and obligations.
Who would benefit from using TOGAF®?
Any organization undertaking, or planning to undertake, the design and implementation of Enterprise Architecture for the support of mission-critical business applications, using open systems building blocks.
Customers who design and implement Enterprise Architectures using TOGAF®, are ensured of a design and a procurement specification that will greatly facilitate open systems implementation, and will enable the benefits of open systems to accrue to their organisations with reduced risk.
About Enterprise Architecture
Enterprise Architecture (EA) is a well-defined practice as well as theoretical blueprint for conducting business analysis, design, planning, implementation and execution of successful business strategy. EA allows Enterprises to achieve the harmony between IT efficiency and business innovation. The technical advantages that result from a good Enterprise Architecture, bring important business benefits.
When done properly, Enterprise Architecture (EA) is the critical mechanism for Enterprise efficiency in short, mid and long terms. EA impacts the effect of the business operational processes, their cost and associated risks which are the key factors for company efficiency even at trough times. TOGAF supports the journey with Enterprise Architecture and helps Organisations fulfil business strategy.
