‘Enterprise architecture’ involves creating ‘architectures’ of IT infrastructures, including how they are put together and how different elements interact. This provides a clearer sense of perspective which organizations can use to align architectures with business goals.
This can be essential for supporting large-scale enterprise transformation, IT growth, and organization-wide change.
‘The Open Group Architecture Framework’ is a leading enterprise architecture framework. It provides a systematic approach for designing, building, and adapting enterprise architectures – one that has been successfully applied across countless organizations and industries around the world.
The Open Group works with customers and suppliers of technology products and services, and with consortia and other standards organizations to capture, clarify, and integrate current and emerging requirements, establish standards and policies, and share best practices.
The TOGAF standard is used by organizations of virtually every size, sector and industry. Enterprise architecture is becoming a much more common practice for maximizing efficiency and managing complex business strategies, and this has only led to an increase in demand for TOGAF certified architects.
However, while any organization can use the TOGAF standard, it takes a certified architect to use it properly.
Students begin with TOGAF Foundation (Level 1). Passing this allows them to proceed to the TOGAF Certified (Level 2) exam. There are no prerequisites for taking the TOGAF Business Architecture (BA) exam. The Essentials and Implementation courses can also be taken without passing an exam.
According to Payscale, TOGAF-certified professionals such as enterprise, solutions, and technical architects can earn between $85,000 and $202,000 (or £39,000 and £202,000). TOGAF-certified architects can also find work in various industries all over the world.
The TOGAF framework is popular all over the world. You can find certified professionals in over 130 countries, and TOGAF architects can find work almost anywhere.
That being said, there are certainly several regions where the TOGAF standard has more of a presence. The majority of TOGAF certifications are earned in the UK, USA, India, the Netherlands and Australia.
The clarity offered by TOGAF helps businesses to pursue enterprise transformation, IT growth, and organization-wide change with optimized efficiency and focus.
