Course Description

This course will go over the auxiliary areas of TOGAF® related to tracking architectural outputs, reference models, and building an Enterprise Architecture practice.

Learning Objectives

Architecture Development Method Guidelines

  • start the course
  • describe how gap analysis can be used to validate architectural outputs from the Architecture Development Method
  • identify techniques that are useful during the migration planning phases of the Architecture Development Method
  • describe how interoperability requirements are gathered and utilized throughout the Architecture Development Method
  • identify the factors that determine readiness and align them with the migration planning of the Architecture Development Method
  • describe how to management risk as applied to an architecture project
  • describe the capability-based planning technique and align it with the Architecture Development Method

Architecture Content Framework

  • describe how a content framework can help with organizing all of the various architectural outputs
  • describe the high-level formal structure used to organize architectural outputs
  • describe concepts around architectural artifacts and understand that certain phases will produce certain artifacts
  • describe some of the deliverables (architectural artifacts) that are produced by the Architecture Development Method
  • describe building blocks and how this applies to the Architecture Development Method

Enterprise Continuum and Tools

  • describe the enterprise continuum and its uses around communication and specification
  • describe the partitioning and its uses around the enterprise continuum
  • describe the repository and its contents
  • describe how tools can assist with documenting the architectural documentation

TOGAF® Reference Models

  • describe the Technical Reference Model
  • describe the concepts of the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model

Architecture Capability Framework

  • describe at a high-level the Architecture Capability Framework
  • describe how to establish and maintain an Architectural Capability
  • describe how to establish and maintain an Architecture Board
  • describe how to establish and maintain project compliance with architectural decisions
  • describe how to establish and maintain agreements between stakeholders on the architectural outputs and use
  • identify the governance framework and how it applies to enterprise architecture
  • identify the maturity models around architecture
  • identify the skills and roles required for working with the enterprise architecture

Practice: Impact of TOGAF® review

  • suggest how TOGAF® would help
