TOGAF: A GLOBAL, CONSENSUS-BASED, NON- PROPRIETARY STANDARD FRAMEWORK

 

The aim of TOGAF certification course is to provide validation that in addition to the knowledge and comprehension of TOGAF Foundation, the candidate is able to analyze and apply this knowledge.

The learning objectives at this level therefore emphasize on application and analysis in addition to knowledge and comprehension.

TOGAF is a global, consensus-based, non- proprietary standard framework that helps organisations develop an EA. TOGAF consists of three main elements:
• Architecture Development Method (ADM)
• Enterprise Continuum
• Resource Base
The key component is the ADM. a methodology that provides a step-by-step process for developing an Enterprise Architecture.

 

 

TOGAF certification course helps attendees:

 

1. Reduce the time, cost, and risk in training, hiring, and managing IT Architecture professionals, both internal and external.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Simplifies communication between recruiting organizations, consultancies and employment organizations.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Avoids wasting time interviewing staff who may have applied in all good faith, but still lack the skills and/or experience required by the employer.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Avoids staff who are capable of filling IT architecture roles being unseen, or not identifying themselves with advertised positions and hence not even applying.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·<!--[endif]-->

2. Reduce the time and cost to set up an internal IT Architecture practice.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Many enterprises do not have an internal IT Architecture practice due to the complication involved in setting one up, preferring instead to simply interview and recruit architecture staff on an ad hoc basis.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->By providing definitions of the Architecting skills and proficiency levels required of personnel who are to perform a variety of architecting roles defined within TOGAF, the TOGAF Architecture Skills Framework greatly reduces the time, cost and risk of setting up a practice from scratch, and avoids "re-inventing wheels".

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·<!--[endif]-->

3. By reducing the time and cost to apply an IT Architect Practice, helps reduce the time, cost and risk of overall IT development.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Enterprises do not have an internal IT Architecture practice run the risk of inappropriate personnel being employed or engaged, through no-one's fault, and despite everyone involved acting in good faith. The resultant time and cost penalties far outweigh the time and cost of having an internal IT Architecture practice

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Personnel costs are increased, through the occasional need to rehire or reassign staff

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Even more important is the unpleasant impact on the time, cost and quality of operational IT systems, and the projects to deliver them, resulting from poor staff assignments.

 

 

 

A typical IT Architecture team undertaking the development of an Enterprise Architecture in TOGAF certification course would include the following roles:

Architecture Board Members

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Architecture Sponsor

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->IT Architecture Manager

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->IT Architects for:

° Enterprise Architecture

° Business Architecture

° Data Architecture

° Applications Architecture

° Technology Architecture

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Programme and/or Project Managers

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->IT Designer and many others
