What is enterprise architecture?

‘Enterprise architecture’ describes the role of creating ‘architectures’ of IT infrastructures.

This includes how the architectures are put together and how different elements interact, providing a clearer perspective.

Organisations often employ TOGAF certified architects to help them align architectures with business goals.

This can be vital when supporting large-scale enterprise transformation, IT growth, and organisational change.

What is TOGAF?

TOGAF is an acronym for The Open Group Architecture Framework.

The Open Group works with customers, suppliers, and standards organisations such as Consortia.

They collaborate to capture and clarify technology requirements, establish standards and policies, and share best practices.

What kind of organization can benefit from the TOGAF standard?

The TOGAF standard is used by organizations of almost every size, sector, and industry.

Enterprise Architecture is becoming a common practice for maximizing efficiency and managing complex business strategies.

This has led to an increase in demand for TOGAF certified architects.

While any organization can use the TOGAF Standard, only a certified architect has been trained how to utilise it properly.

What is the TOGAF certification path?

Students begin with TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Foundation (Part 1).

Passing this allows them to proceed to the TOGAF Enterprise Architecture Practitioner (Part 2) exam.

There are no prerequisites for taking the TOGAF Business Architecture (BA) exam. The credential courses can be taken without passing an exam.

How much is a TOGAF certification worth?

According to Payscale, TOGAF-certified professionals can earn between $85,000 and $202,000 (or £39,000 and £202,000).

TOGAF-certified architects find work in various industries all over the world.

This is increasingly so due to collaboration between business and IT infrastructures becoming ever more essential for remaining competitive.

In what countries is the TOGAF standard popular?

The TOGAF framework is used worldwide, with certified professionals in over 130 countries.

Exams are commonly taken in the UK, USA, India, the Netherlands, and Australia, though architects can find work almost anywhere.

What are the benefits of TOGAF for businesses?

TOGAF is a beneficial tool for businesses to effectively pursue enterprise transformation and IT growth, while also ensuring their IT infrastructure is in line with business goals.

It provides examples and tutorials to help simplify EA programs and can help reduce the amount of time needed to be spent preparing for future programs.

How long is the TOGAF exam?

The TOGAF Foundation (Part 1) exam is 60 minutes and 40 questions long, and is strictly closed-book.

Students who are not native English-speakers can be allocated 30 minutes of extra time. The pass mark is 60%.

The TOGAF Practitioner (Part 2) exam is 90 questions long with eight questions and a 6-% pass mark.
