What is TOGAF?

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is increasingly used to plan, analyse, communicate and manage changes. A number of Enterprise Architecture frameworks already exist and are widely recognized, each of which has its particular (dis)advantages, and relevance for Enterprise Architecture. However, TOGAF is the only open standard method for developing an Enterprise Architecture.

TOGAF is a detailed method and a set of supporting tools for developing an Enterprise Architecture. It describes the process for acceptance, production, use and maintenance of Enterprise Architectures. TOGAF is used worldwide by numerous architects to design, evaluate, and build the optimal architecture for their organization.

TOGAF is the result of best practices, as gathered by The Open Group's Architecture Forum. Consequently, TOGAF's great strength is that it is non-proprietary and free to use. However, this does mean that architects need to customize and tailor TOGAF to their organization's specific needs. TOGAF has been refined over the years and the latest version published is TOGAF 9.1.

TOGAF is a tremendous success. Major companies worldwide have adopted and now use TOGAF as their guiding architecture framework.

What is ArchiMate?

ArchiMate offers a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems and technical infrastructure. The core of ArchiMate is a design language to model business and IT architectures in coherence with each other. ArchiMate also offers a range of techniques for visualizing, analyzing, designing and using Enterprise Architecture to solve business change. ArchiMate supports frameworks like TOGAF, DYA and IAF.
