Who is the course designed for?

In recent years, Enterprise Architecture has emerged and gained significance in enterprise business development. Today, organizations have come to realise the need to establish Enterprise Architecture to align business strategic visions with information technology. Essentially, Enterprise Architecture connects different business units for synergetic communication and collaboration. It integrates the business and makes technology drive efficiency and deliver Return on Investment (ROI).

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF 9.1) represents an industry consensus of Enterprise Architecture frameworks and methods that can be used as the basis for creating an organization’s Enterprise Architecture. It has been built over several years through open participation and collaboration between leading industry practitioners and is endorsed by the membership of the Open Group’s Architecture Forum. The Open Group is a vendor and technology-neutral consortium whose vision of Boundaryless information Flow will enable access to integrated information within and between enterprises based on open standards and global interoperability. Hence, TOGAF is now used by leading enterprises to certify a common body of core knowledge about methodology and framework that can be easily adopted and adopted by IT Architects to any enterprise environments.

This course is delivered from the IT Architect’s perspective with reference to the IT Architecture Body of Knowledge and real-world experience. Participants are aught the proven TOGAF Architecture Development method used in the architecting process and their techniques as well as guidelines on how it can be used for architecture governance, architecture management and architecture roadmap.

In addition, this course also addresses the learning outcomes required for TOGAF9 Level 1 and Level 2 certifications, and equips participants with the practical knowledge path become TOGAF9 Certified.
