Testimonials:

"Selvyn is capable of delivering the dry theory of TOGAF in an enthusiastic, humorous and effective way."

Øystein Sæle, Senior IT Architect, Marin IT

"Enthusiastic, brought a lot of colour to the course. Brought stories, practical experience. Funny and entertaining."

Steven O'Donoghue, Senior Principal Solution Implementation Consultant, SAS UK

"I found the course to be very productive with a lot of information to take in within a short timeframe, the teacher was very good and he kept my interest throughout the day by giving a good mix of speaking and ourselves listening and also class activities in which we all went away in groups to carry out mini projects which we presented back to the teacher and class. The teacher also made the course interesting because he used real life scenarios to illustrate the various stages of TOGAF and he also periodically tested us throughout the day on what we had learnt so far."

Iqbal Mohammed, Senior Solution Implementation Consultant, SAS

Overview
TOGAF 9 provides an Architecture Development Method, Content Framework and Capability Framework that can be used as the basis for creating an organisation’s enterprise architecture. It has been built up over several years through open participation and collaboration between leading industry practitioners. In addition, TOGAF 9 provides a variety of tools, building blocks and resources that facilitate the process and enable the design and development of enterprise architecture across four domains; Business, Data, Applications and Technology.

TOGAF is an industry standard EA framework that is available free of cost to any organisation wishing to develop an enterprise architecture for use within that organisation. More than 60 percent of the Fortune 50 and 80 percent of the Global Forbes 50 use TOGAF to reduce time, costs and risks associated with developing an EA and improve overall business agility. TOGAF certification programs exist for individuals, trainers, professional services, and tool support.

These programs enable organisations to standardise on an open method for IT architecture and avoid lock-in to the proprietary methods of major vendors.
