TOGAF, an Open Group Standard, is a proven enterprise architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organisations to improve business efficiency. It is the most prominent and reliable enterprise architecture standard, ensuring consistent standards, methods, and communication among enterprise architecture professionals. Enterprise architecture professionals fluent in TOGAF standards enjoy greater industry credibility, job effectiveness, and career opportunities. TOGAF helps practitioners avoid being locked into proprietary methods, utilise resources more efficiently and effectively, and realise a greater return on investment.

This four day course is intended as an introduction to the TOGAF framework leading to an advanced understanding of the central concepts. TOGAF is the de-facto global standard for Enterprise Architecture. The Open Group Architecture Forum, comprised of more than 200 enterprises, develops and maintains the TOGAF standard and publishes successive versions at regular intervals. 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.

The course looks beyond the essentials, to give attendees a deeper understanding of the framework. It also spans the Key Learning Points required to take the TOGAF® Level 1 & 2 exams and helps candidates begin to develop practical skills through a series of realistic case studies. You will be taught by a certified TOGAF instructor, who has extensive experience as a practising architect and who will guide you in the real-world application of TOGAF. After our training course you will have the opportunity to sit an exam and achieve the internationally recognised TOGAF 9.1 certifications.

Syzygal is a globally Accredited Training Organisation and Accredited Courseware Provider for best practice education & certification programs. We are accredited by the following Examination Institutes: APMG, EXIN, Loyalist and PEOPLECERT.

  2. 2. 2 TOGAF, an Open Group Standard, is a proven Enter- prise Architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organisations to improve business efficiency. It is the most prominent and reliable Enterprise Architecture standard, ensuring consistent standards, methods, and communication among Enterprise Architecture professionals. Enterprise Architecture professionals fluent in the TOGAF standard enjoy greater industry credibility, job effectiveness, and career opportunities. TOGAF helps practitioners avoid being locked into proprietary methods, utilise resources more efficiently and effectively, and realise a greater return on investment. First published in 1995, TOGAF was based on the US Department of De- fence Technical Architecture Frame- work for Information Management (TAFIM). From this sound foundation, The Open Group Architecture Forum has developed successive versions of TOGAF at regular intervals and published them on The Open Group public web site. TOGAF Version 9.1 is a maintenance update to TOGAF 9, addressing comments raised since the introduc- tion of TOGAF 9 in 2009. It retains the major features and structure of TOGAF 9, thereby preserving existing investment in TOGAF, and adds fur- ther detail and clarification to what is already proven. TOGAF FOUNDATION TRAINING The purpose of certification to TOGAF 9 Level 1, known as TOGAF 9 Founda- tion, is to provide validation that the Candidate has gained knowledge of the terminology, structure, and basic concepts of the TOGAF 9 standard, and understands the core principles of Enterprise Architecture and the TOGAF standard: •• Basic concepts of Enterprise Ar- chitecture and key terminology of the TOGAF 9 •• The ADM cycle and the objec- tives of each phase, and how to adapt and scope the ADM •• The concept of the Enterprise Continuum; its purpose and con- stituent parts •• How the ADM phases contrib- utes to the success of Enterprise Architecture •• ADM guidelines and techniques •• How Architecture Governance contributes to the Architecture Development Cycle •• The concepts of views and view- points and their role in commu- nicating with stakeholders •• The concept of building blocks •• The key deliverables of the ADM cycle •• The TOGAF reference models •• The TOGAF certification program TOGAF CERTIFIED TRAINING The purpose of certification for TOGAF 9 Level 2, known as TOGAF 9 Certified, is to provide validation that in addition to the knowledge and comprehension of TOGAF 9 Founda- tion, the Candidate is able to analyse and apply this knowledge: •• Architecture Governance in development of an Enterprise Architecture •• The TOGAF Architecture Content Framework •• Stakeholder Management Technique •• The TOGAF Content Metamodel •• TOGAF techniques when devel- oping an Enterprise Architecture •• The TOGAF Technical Reference Model and how to customise it to meet an organisation’s needs •• The Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model •• The content of the key delivera- bles of the ADM cycle •• How Enterprise Architecture can be partitioned to meet the spe- cific needs of an organisation •• The purpose of the Architecture Repository •• Applying iteration and levels of architecture with the ADM •• Adapting the ADM for security •• SOA as a style of architecture •• Architecture maturity models Qualitymatters

TOGAF 9 qualification provides a trusted, vendor-neutral, globally recognised and portable credential. TOGAF is the open enterprise archi- tecture standard used by the world’s leading organisations to improve business efficiency. The TOGAF Certification Program has ena- bled more than 20,000 enterprise architects and trainers around the globe to demonstrate their proven knowledge of the framework. Certi- fication is achieved through a two- part exam, following a course of self-study or an Accredited TOGAF 9 Training Course. The Architecture Development Method (ADM) forms the core of TOGAF and is a method for deriving organisation-specific enterprise architecture. The ADM provides a tested and repeatable process for developing architectures. The ADM includes establishing an architecture framework, developing archi- tecture content, transitioning, and governing the realisation of architectures. All of these activities are carried out within an iterative cycle of continuous architecture definition and realisation that allows organisations to transform their enterprises in a controlled manner in response to business goals and opportunities. Throughout the ADM cycle, there should be frequent validation of results against the original requirements, both those for the whole ADM cycle, and those for the particular phase of the process. Such validation should recon- sider scope, detail, schedules, and milestones. Each phase should consider assets produced from previous iterations of the process and external assets from the marketplace, such as other frameworks or models.

  6. 6. 6 THEORY ABSORB CONSOLIDATE TEST TACT Theory Delivering focused knowledge with innovative methods Testing Measurement and learning through testing confirmation of Consolidate Fun and interesting learning utilising interactive methods Absorb Placing students in real-world scenarios with hands on scope TACT is Syzygal’s pro- prietary methodology for developing courses and courseware As part of doctoral research, Syzygal have developed a unique approach to developing and designing professional education courses and courseware. Rather than utilising tired and over-used methods such as working straight from a syllabus, Syzygal decided to research the key elements of effec- tive learning. What we found was that although dynamic and flexible delivery methods were essential to the overall experience for students, it was the approach to content formulation and positioning that was critical to maximising learning up-take and knowledge retention. The THEORY of a subject is obvi- ously critical to success, but ensur- ing it is positioned in contextual alignment is the pay-off. We then ensure students ABSORB the the- ory by placing them in real-world scenarios and role-plays, ensuring the theory connects to practical application. To support this we CONSOLIDATE the learning by us- ing innovative games and exercises to further develop understanding and retention. Finally we ensure TESTING takes place throughout training events which prepares the student to take their formal certification. TheTACTapproach
