In modern organizations, there are many interconnected elements to consider, but having a clear idea of how everything works can seem impossible. This is where ‘enterprise architecture’ comes in.
Enterprise architects can create ‘architectures’ that show the inner workings and structure of an enterprise. This can provide managers and stakeholders with a greater sense of clarity and perspective, allowing them to make more informed decisions regarding organizational change and take calculated steps towards maximizing the efficiency of different processes and departments.
The most popular best-practice framework used by enterprise architects is TOGAF, ‘The Open Group Architecture Framework’. The methodology is flexible enough to be utilized by any organization, regardless of location, size, industry, and so on. It is also precise enough for practitioners to use it to take architectural development projects from conception through to completion. It has proven to be demonstrably effective, and it is also regularly updated to keep it fresh and relevant in the Digital Age.
This guide is designed to give you a complete insight into everything you need to know about TOGAF, including how it works, how to become certified, and what kind of benefits it can offer both companies and individuals.
