Module zero introduces you to the course main features, learning plan, aims and objectives, and structure.
It also offers a course guide, diagram packs, a further reading and links document and links to download essential copies of the framework publications.
Module one answers several fundamental questions, such as “What is an enterprise?”, “Why is an Enterprise Architecture needed?” and “Why use the TOGAF Standard as a framework for Enterprise Architecture?”
The module also introduces the core concepts of the TOGAF Standard, including an initial outline of the Architecture Development Method (ADM), the Enterprise Continuum, Architecture Repository, Content Framework, Enterprise Metamodel and Enterprise Capability.
Module two explains the basic structure of the ADM and explores the governance and scoping of Enterprise Architecture.
Module 3 outlines the purpose and objectives of each of the phases of the ADM: the Preliminary Phase and Phases A-H. It also explains Requirements Management and architecture in an Agile Enterprise.
Module 4 introduces the ADM supporting guidelines and techniques. It outlines the purpose of Architecture Principles and what makes a good Architecture Principle. It goes on to explain business scenarios, interoperability, the Business Transformation Readiness Assessment and risk management.
Module 5 explains where to find detailed guidance on applying the TOGAF Standard, how to apply iteration to the ADM, the Architecture Landscape, Architecture Partitioning and the purposes of EA Capability.
The module concludes with an explanation of how the TOGAF Standard supports the digital enterprise.
Module 6 explains the concept of Architecture Governance, focusing first on its nature and characteristics. It then describes the role and responsibilities of an Architecture Board along with the role of Architecture Contracts and Architecture Compliance.
Module 7 focuses on Architecture content — the outputs produced while executing the ADM. It begins by defining key concepts of Architectural Artifacts, what building blocks are and their use in the ADM. It then describes the TOGAF Standard deliverables created and consumed in different ADM phases.
There are two practice exams. One has been provided by The Open Group. The other has been created by Good e-Learning.

‘Enterprise architecture’ describes the role of creating ‘architectures’ of IT infrastructures. This includes how the architectures are put together and how different elements interact, providing a clearer perspective. Organisations often employ TOGAF certified architects to help them align architectures with business goals.
This can be vital when supporting large-scale enterprise transformation, IT growth, and organisational change.
TOGAF is an acronym for The Open Group Architecture Framework.
The Open Group works with customers, suppliers, and standards organisations such as Consortia. They collaborate to capture and clarify technology requirements, establish standards and policies, and share best practices.
The TOGAF standard is used by organizations of almost every size, sector, and industry. Enterprise Architecture is becoming a common practice for maximizing efficiency and managing complex business strategies. This has led to an increase in demand for TOGAF certified architects.
While any organization can use the TOGAF Standard, only a certified architect has been trained how to utilise it properly.
Students begin with TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Foundation (Part 1). Passing this allows them to proceed to the TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Practitioner (Part 2) exam. There are no prerequisites for taking the TOGAF Business Architecture (BA) exam. The credential courses can be taken without passing an exam.
According to Payscale, TOGAF-certified professionals can earn between $85,000 and $202,000 (or £39,000 and £202,000).
TOGAF-certified architects find work in various industries all over the world. This is increasingly so due to collaboration between business and IT infrastructures becoming ever more essential for remaining competitive.
The TOGAF framework is used worldwide, with certified professionals in over 130 countries. Exams are commonly taken in the UK, USA, India, the Netherlands, and Australia, though architects can find work almost anywhere.
TOGAF is a beneficial tool for businesses to effectively pursue enterprise transformation and IT growth, while also ensuring their IT infrastructure is in line with business goals.
It provides examples and tutorials to help simplify EA programs and can help reduce the amount of time needed to be spent preparing for future programs.
