In every enterprise ,a sound architecture is the key to success. As we know that a fragile architecture converts everything into chaos. So, by considering the stability of an enterprise, we should concentrate on its architecture. TOGAF is a framework that enable us to design, evaluate and build the right architecture for an enterprise. ADM is the core part of TOGAF .ADM is iterative and consists of many phases.
1. Architecture -- (an architectural product or work)
2 . Architecture -- (the discipline dealing with the principles of design and construction and ornamentation of fine buildings; ``architecture and eloquence are mixed arts whose end is sometimes beauty and sometimes use''
3. Architecture -- (the profession of designing buildings and environments with consideration for their esthetic effect)
4. Structure, Architecture -- (the manner of construction of something and the disposition of its parts; ``artists must study the structure of the human body"; "the architecture of a computer's system software'' )
