The TOGAF framework is a detailed method and a set of supporting tools for developing an Enterprise Architecture, developed by members of The Open Group Architecture Forum (www.opengroup.org/architecture).
This edition is based on TOGAF Version 8.1 with Technical Corrigendum U065 applied, also known as TOGAF Version 8.1.1.
It may be used freely by any organization wishing to develop an Enterprise Architecture for use within that organization (subject to the Conditions of Use).

- PART III (Enterprise Continuum) describes the TOGAF Enterprise Continuum, a virtual repository of architecture assets, which includes the TOGAF Foundation Architecture, and the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model (III-RM)
