Details

The TOGAF® Standard, a standard of The Open Group, is a proven Enterprise Architecture methodology and framework used by the world's leading organizations to improve business efficiency. It is the most prominent and reliable Enterprise Architecture standard, ensuring consistent standards, methods, and communication among Enterprise Architecture professionals. Those fluent in the TOGAF approach enjoy greater industry credibility, job effectiveness, and career opportunities.

The TOGAF approach helps practitioners avoid being locked into proprietary methods, utilize resources more efficiently and effectively, and realize a greater return on investment.

The TOGAF standard is developed and maintained by members of The Open Group Architecture Forum. The original development of TOGAF Version 1 in 1995 was based on the US Department of Defense Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management (TAFIM). Starting from this sound foundation, The Open Group Architecture Forum has developed successive versions of the standard and published each one on The Open Group website.

The TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2 is an update providing additional guidance, correcting errors, introducing structural changes to support the TOGAF Library (an extensive collection of reference material), and removing obsolete content.

The standard is divided into six parts:

  • Part I – Introduction: This part provides a high-level introduction to the key concepts of Enterprise Architecture and in particular the TOGAF approach. It contains the definitions of terms used throughout the standard.
  • Part II – Architecture Development Method: This is the core of the TOGAF framework. It describes the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM) – a step-by-step approach to developing an Enterprise Architecture.
  • Part III – ADM Guidelines & Techniques: This part contains a collection of guidelines and techniques available for use in applying the TOGAF standard and the TOGAF ADM. Additional guidelines and techniques are also in the TOGAF Library (available online from The Open Group).
  • Part IV – Architecture Content Framework: This part describes the TOGAF content framework, including a structured metamodel for architectural artifacts, the use of re-usable architecture building blocks, and an overview of typical architecture deliverables.
  • Part V – Enterprise Continuum & Tools: This part discusses appropriate taxonomies and tools to categorize and store the outputs of architecture activity within an enterprise.
  • Part VI – Architecture Capability Framework: This part discusses the organization, processes, skills, roles, and responsibilities required to establish and operate an architecture practice within an enterprise.
