My passion is technology and living with it, and my ultimate goal is to become an Enterprise Architect, as a major step to continue with the path I should be following, I am TOGAF 9.2 certified as on today.
It was a long due one, finally I am able to accomplish it. Great experience preparing for this certification examination.
Little summary, for those who haven’t heard about TOGAF:
The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is a framework for enterprise architecture which provides an approach for designing, planning, implementing, and governing an enterprise information technology architecture.
To make it simple: The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is a framework – a detailed method and a set of supporting tools – for developing an enterprise architecture.
TOGAF® is the de facto global standard for Enterprise Architecture. The Open Group Architecture Forum, comprised of more than 200 enterprises, develops and maintains the TOGAF standard and publishes successive versions at regular intervals.
TOGAF is a high level approach to design. It is typically modeled at four levels: Business, Application, Data, and Technology. It relies heavily on modularization, standardization, and already existing, proven technologies and products.
The TOGAF framework enables organizations to effectively address critical business needs by:
- Ensuring that everyone speaks the same language.
- Avoiding lock-in to proprietary solutions by standardizing on open methods for Enterprise Architecture.
- Saving time and money, and utilize resources more effectively.
- Achieving demonstrable ROI.
