Market Needs

Most large organizations have enterprise architects and use one or multiple EA frameworks. EA stems from the IT department and is used to keep an overview of the system landscape within an organization. It helps in giving an overview and finding synergies within the existing “tools” (e.g., infrastructure and systems) used in an organization. EA supports “business transformation” that takes the corporate strategy and vision as starting point.

TOGAF is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for EA. In fact, 80% of the fortune 500 organizations use the TOGAF framework. Because it is an open standard, based on 10+ years of cooperation between many organizations started by the US Ministry of Defense. TOGAF is a consensus framework, rather than a best practice framework, which is why organizations need to customize TOGAF to their organizational setting.

The pool of certified TOGAF professionals is growing rapidly too, with 8,000 in 2011, and an estimated 16,000 for 2012. The value of a course lies in peer experience; sharing/networking and practical insights in how to apply TOGAF.

 

We are using a different EA framework, why would our organization switch to TOGAF?

IT Architecture is gaining more recognition as a necessary discipline for ensuring that the design and implementation of enterprise- wide IT properly addresses and supports the needs of the business. TOGAF is an open, industrystandard framework and method for IT Architecture, developed and continuously evolved since the mid-90’s by representatives of some of the world’s leading IT customer and vendor organizations.

The introduction of a certification program for TOGAF enables large organizations (both private and public sector) to standardize this open method for IT Architecture, and so avoid being locked-in to the proprietary methods of major consultancies.

It is an important step in making IT Architecture a well-recognized discipline, and in introducing rigor into the procurement of tools and services for IT Architecture.

E-Learning Agenda

Course Material:

The e Learning consists of all below mentioned modules, as well as access to digital versions of the TOGAF reference book, glossary, syllabus, case study, and sample exams and quizzes. Access is strictly web-based and remains valid for 6 months after starting the course.

Part 1: Introduction

The TOGAF 9 Certification Program

  • The purpose of the first module is to introduce you to the TOGAF 9 Certification program and the benefits of becoming TOGAF certified.

The Basic Concepts of Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF

  • This module introduces the basic concepts of enterprise architecture, The Open Group and the TOGAF architecture framework.
  • What is an enterprise? What is enterprise architecture? What is a framework? These are some of the basic concepts that the module will cover as an introduction to the world of enterprise architecture.

The Core Concepts of TOGAF 9

  • The TOGAF 9 architecture framework is divided into 7 parts, each part addressing a different aspect of the architecture framework.
  • This module will introduce you to the different parts of the TOGAF 9 architecture framework and you will be able to distinguish between the Architecture Development Method, Architecture Content Framework and the Architecture Capability Framework.

Part 2: Architecture Development Method

Introduction to the Architecture Development Method (ADM)

  • The purpose of module 4 is to introduce you to the Architecture Development Method cycle by briefly explaining the objective of each phase in the cycle and how to adapt the method for use in an organization.
  • You should now understand the objectives of all the phases in the Architecture Development Method, including the Preliminary Phase and Requirements Management.

The ADM cycle and the Objectives of Each Phase

  • The focus on the Architecture Development Method continues in this module by looking at each of the method phases in more detail. The aim is to understand how each phase contributes to the success of enterprise architecture by focusing on the approach for each phase.

Part 3: ADM Guidelines and Techniques

The ADM Guidelines and Techniques

  • At this stage of the course you should have a good understanding of each phases of the architecture development method.
  • In module 6 we introduce the Architecture Development Method Guidelines and Techniques that are available to architects when they are executing the different phases of the method, including business scenarios, architecture principles and the gap analysis technique.
  • For the foundation level exam you must understand the objectives of the different guidelines and techniques but you are not required to understand how to implement a technique on a project.

Part 4: Architecture Content Framework

Views, Viewpoints and Stakeholder Communication

  • Good stakeholder communication is a key requirement to successfully create an architecture definition in TOGAF 9.
  • This module studies the concepts of views and viewpoints using the ISO 42010 standard, which is an international standard supported by TOGAF and used to define the viewpoints in the TOGAF Content Framework.

The Concept of Building Blocks

  • A key benefit of enterprise architecture is the ability to re-use architecture, business or technology components on different projects or in different parts of the organization.
  • The concept of architecture and solution building blocks is described in this module, including the use of building blocks as reusable components within TOGAF.

The Key Deliverables of the ADM Cycle

  • During each phase of the Architecture Development Method a set of key deliverables are generated. These deliverables are used as the input for other phases and as the outputs that are consumedby a wide range of stakeholders.
  • The purpose of module 9 is to highlight the key deliverables of each phase in the Architecture Development Method.

Part 5: Enterprise Continuum & Tools

The Concept of the Enterprise Continuum

  • The Enterprise Continuum is a classification schema that can be used to organize the content of your enterprise repositories.
  • In this module we will explain the concept of the Enterprise Continuum together with its purpose, and constituent parts. You should also understand that the architecture continuum and solutions continuum are both components of the enterprise continuum.

The Architecture Repository

  • In module 11 we will have a closer look at the architecture repository, which is used to store and manage architecture content produced and consumed by the Architecture Development Method.
  • You will be able to see that you need more from an architecture repository than just being able to store your architecture models!

Part 6: TOGAF Reference Models

The TOGAF Reference Models

In this module we will introduce the two core reference models for foundation and common systems architecture defined in TOGAF that you can be added to the Architecture Continuum: the Technical Reference Model (TRM) and the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference model (III-RM).

Part 7: Architecture Capability Framework

Architecture Governance and the ADM

  • The last module of this course focuses on the “people” side of architecture by introducing you to the architecture governance concepts available in TOGAF.
  • You will look at the Architecture Capability Framework, and specifically, how architecture governance contributes to the successful execution of the Architecture Development Cycle.
  • You should now realize how important it is to govern architecture within your organization.

Part 8: Learning Review

Revision Module – Key Learning Points

  • This module looks again at the key concepts and learning outcomes for TOGAF Foundation level certification and should be used an aid when preparing for your exam.
  • It is structured to reflect the key learning units required to pass the foundation level exam. Each learning unit is linked to the appropriate sections in the online TOGAF standard to enable you to quickly refer to the source information.

Practice Exam

  • See how much you have learnt so far by taking a mock up test modeled on the actual Foundation Level Exam.

Sitting the TOGAF Exam

The TOGAF Level 1/ Foundation exam is mostly concerned with assessing knowledge, whereas the TOGAF Level 2/ Certified exam is concerned with assessing your insight gained through experience in the application of that knowledge. If you already have the necessary experience of applying TOGAF principles, such that you could confidently sit the Level 2 exam and expect to pass, then sitting the Combined exam is more cost effective and will save you time.However, if you still need time to gain experience in the application of TOGAF principles you may choose to sit each exam separately.Bear in mind that if you only pass one section of the Combined exam, you will need to retake that section in order to gain the complete certification for Levels 1 and 2. It is not possible to take the Combined exam, pass level 1 only, and achieve TOGAF Foundation certification.If you sit the individual exams for Levels 1 and 2 on the same day however, and only pass Level 1, you will be granted TOGAF Foundation certification.

Sitting the TOGAF Part 2 exam requires that you have first taken and passed the Part 1 exam. You can sit the separate Part 1 and Part 2 exams sequentially on the same day if you sit them both at the same ATTC provider. If you choose to sit the Part 2 exam on a different day to your Part 1, then you must have a TOGAF 9 Foundation entry in the Directory of Certified people or have passed at least the Part 1 section of the Combined examination.
