  • 2. Who we are • Enterprise Architects: – An Australian firm working with clients to apply Enterprise & IT Architecture and IT Strategy effectively and to acquire and grow talent to build high performance architecture practices – Services: • Consulting – delivering independent advice, guidance and support by industry leading professionals • Recruitment – combining deep architecture expertise with professionalism in recruitment • Training & Education – teaching world’s best practice guided by real-world experience – Clients: most of Australia’s blue-chip companies and many government organisations – Offices: Melbourne & Sydney • Last month in Melbourne and Sydney, Enterprise Architects, together with our partners Knotion Consulting, successfully delivered the world’s first TOGAF 9 courses and supervised the Level 1 and Level 2 certification process for course delegates. • Our TOGAF Training Program is part of our fully integrated Architecture Training & Education Program which includes: – Executive Briefing on Business Agility – TOGAF 9 • Level 1 & 2 • TOGAF 8 to TOGAF 9 Bridge – Advanced & Applied Enterprise Architecture • Advanced Enterprise Architecture • Applied Enterprise Architecture – Enterprise Architecture Kick-Start Program Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 2
  • 3. Why I’m Here • Context: – Today’s world of business, systems and technology is more complex and dynamic than ever. – Enterprise Architecture has been around for a while and so have Enterprise Architecture Frameworks – promising a lot but delivering how much? – TOGAF is a leading (the leading?) “framework” for applying Enterprise Architecture principles and concepts. – Version 9 of TOGAF was released in January and launched in February 2009. • Purpose: – To provide a very high level outline of TOGAF 9 and its relevance. – To provide a starting point for you to do a little more research on TOGAF. • Content: 1. What is TOGAF? 2. Some of the advances of TOGAF 9 vs TOGAF 8 3. A glimpse into the content and structure of TOGAF 9 4. A bit about TOGAF 9 Certification 5. A personal view on the relevance of TOGAF 9 in today’s challenging world Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 3
  • 4. TOGAF • The Open Group: ―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.‖ http:/www.opengroup.org • TOGAF = The Open Group Architecture Framework – ― ... a detailed method and a set of supporting tools — for developing an enterprise architecture. It may be used freely by any organization wishing to develop an enterprise architecture for use within that organization‖ – An effective, industry standard framework and method for Enterprise Architecture – Demystifies architecture development – Complementary to, not competing with other enterprise frameworks – Enables the “Boundaryless Information Flow™” vision – Began in 1993 and continuously evolved – Stretching the boundaries of IT into the Boardroom – Aligning organisation strategy and operational technology – http:/www.opengroup.org/togaf/ Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 4
  • 5. What’s new in TOGAF 9 • Modular Structure • Content Framework • Extended Guidance on Adopting TOGAF within an Enterprise – Partitioning – Architecture Repository – Capability Framework • Explicit Consideration of Architectural Styles, including SOA and Security Architecture – The varying uses of iteration that are possible within the Architecture Development Method (ADM) – Linkages between the ADM and SOA – Specific considerations required to address security architecture within the ADM – Various types of architecture development and how they relate to one another • Additional ADM Detail – Extended guidance on establishing an enterprise architecture framework and planning for architecture development – Definition of a governance model for architecture benefit realisation – The linkage between TOGAF and other management frameworks – More detailed and robust method for defining and planning enterprise transformation • Greater Usability • More Focus on Enterprise Change • More Consistency of Output Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 5

  • 9. TOGAF 9 – Part III: ADM Guidelines and Techniques • Guideline for adapting the • Techniques for Architecture ADM Process: Development: – Applying iteration to the ADM – Architecture Principles – Applying the ADM at different – Stakeholder Management enterprise levels – Architecture Patterns – Security Architecture and the – Business Scenarios ADM – Gap Analysis – Using TOGAF to define and – Migration Planning Govern SOAs – Interoperability Requirements – Business Transformation Readiness Assessment – Risk Management – Capability-based Planning Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 9
  • 10. TOGAF 9 – Part IV: Architecture Content Framework • Three categories of • The Content Metamodel: architectural work product: – Provides a definition of all the – A Deliverable: types of building block that • A work product that is may exist within an contractually specified architecture – An Artifact: – Shows how the building blocks • A work product that describes can be described and relate to an architecture from a one another specific viewpoint – A Building Block: • Represents a component of business, IT or architectural capability • Is combined with other building blocks to deliver architectures and solutions Copyright ©2009 by Enterprise Architects Pty Ltd 10
