TOGAF, ‘The Open Group Architecture Framework’, is a world-class enterprise architecture framework used to create detailed high-level ‘architectures’. It utilizes the Architecture Development Method (ADM), which can be altered and even reordered to suit individual EA projects. At the same time, it also helps practitioners to create reusable enterprise architecture artifacts. This differentiates TOGAF from competitors such as the Zachman framework, which is more about awareness of how architecture domains fit together than the creation of new artifacts or architectures.
The recently released TOGAF 10 offers a range of benefits, including a more modular structure that is easier to study and adapt. It also goes into detail on individual areas of EA, such as Security, Agile, and Business Architecture. All this makes TOGAF 10 an excellent tool for driving business and digital transformation.
