Benefit for Individuals

A dedicated and passionate enterprise architect understands the importance of keeping their knowledge fresh. They need to be able to present a deep knowledge of the relevant standards to other professionals – both in current and future roles.

Building a full and varied career in enterprise architecture means realizing the potential of both the individual architect and the organizations they support. Having the right qualifications is the backbone of being a successful member of the Enterprise Architecture community. Formal certification in the most recent version of the TOGAF standard is something no professional can afford to be without.

Benefit for Organizations

The TOGAF standard was updated for an important reason: the old framework wasn’t future-proof. That’s because no standard can ever anticipate the changing nature of the enterprise architecture field.

Regular training in the latest standards is essential for keeping your organizational architectures current and reliable. Training your staff in the latest version of the TOGAF standard will simplify and speed up the architecture development process in your organization, reducing costs in planning, designing and implementation.
