The TOGAF® Standard is the foremost generic framework in the field of IS/IT Architecture. It contains substantial guidance on what to do to establish an architecture practice and then how to use it in connection with planning the longer-term transformation of the enterprise (strategic architecture) and designing capabilities to support it.
This course looks at the Foundation and Practitioner concepts of the framework (TOGAF® Standard, 10th Edition). It covers the learning points required to take the TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture Combined Part 1/Part 2 exam, and during the course delegates will be helped to prepare for this.
An important new feature within the Practitioner part of this course is the inclusion of the “TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Practitioner Learning Studies”. This is a collection of 18 scenario-based questions designed to help learners discuss and apply (in a group context) practitioner concepts. The satisfactory completion of these questions will enable them to earn “The Open Group Certified: Applied TOGAF® Enterprise Architecture Practitioner” Open Badge to reflect their ability to analyze and apply Enterprise Architecture.
There are no formal pre-requisites for this course and certification.
