  • Foundation Module 1: Introduction

    • The TOGAF 9 Certification Program

      The purpose of the first module is to introduce you to the TOGAF 9 Certification program and the benefits of becoming TOGAF certified.

      The Basic Concepts of Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF

      This module introduces the basic concepts of enterprise architecture, The Open Group and the TOGAF architecture framework.

      What is an enterprise? What is enterprise architecture? What is a framework? These are some of the basic concepts that the module will cover as an introduction to the world of enterprise architecture.

      The Core Concepts of TOGAF 9

      The TOGAF 9 architecture framework is divided into 7 parts, each part addressing a different aspect of the architecture framework.

      This module will introduce you to the different parts of the TOGAF 9 architecture framework and you will be able to distinguish between the Architecture Development Method, Architecture Content Framework and the Architecture Capability Framework.

  • Foundation Module 2: Architecture Development Method

    • Introduction to the Architecture Development Method (ADM)

      The purpose of module 4 is to introduce you to the Architecture Development Method cycle by briefly explaining the objective of each phase in the cycle and how to adapt the method for use in an organization.

      You should now understand the objectives of all the phases in the Architecture Development Method, including the Preliminary Phase and Requirements Management.

      The ADM cycle and the Objectives of Each Phase

      The focus on the Architecture Development Method continues in this module by looking at each of the method phases in more detail. The aim is to understand how each phase contributes to the success of enterprise architecture by focusing on the approach for each phase.

  • Foundation Module 3: ADM Guidelines and Techniques

    • The ADM Guidelines and Techniques

      At this stage of the course you should have a good understanding of each phases of the architecture development method.

      In module 6 we introduce the Architecture Development Method Guidelines and Techniques that are available to architects when they are executing the different phases of the method, including business scenarios, architecture principles and the gap analysis technique.

      For the foundation level exam you must understand the objectives of the different guidelines and techniques but you are not required to understand how to implement a technique on a project.

  • Foundation Module 4: Architecture Content Framework

    • Views, Viewpoints and Stakeholder Communication

      Good stakeholder communication is a key requirement to successfully create an architecture definition in TOGAF 9.

      This module studies the concepts of views and viewpoints using the ISO 42010 standard, which is an international standard supported by TOGAF and used to define the viewpoints in the TOGAF Content Framework.

      The Concept of Building Blocks

      A key benefit of enterprise architecture is the ability to re-use architecture, business or technology components on different projects or in different parts of the organization.

      The concept of architecture and solution building blocks is described in this module, including the use of building blocks as reusable components within TOGAF.

      The Key Deliverables of the ADM Cycle

      During each phase of the Architecture Development Method a set of key deliverables are generated. These deliverables are used as the input for other phases and as the outputs that are consumed by a wide range of stakeholders.

      The purpose of module 9 is to highlight the key deliverables of each phase in the Architecture Development Method.

  • Foundation Module 5: Enterprise Continuum & Tools

    • The Concept of the Enterprise Continuum

      The Enterprise Continuum is a classification schema that can be used to organize the content of your enterprise repositories.

      In this module we will explain the concept of the Enterprise Continuum together with its purpose, and constituent parts. You should also understand that the architecture continuum and solutions continuum are both components of the enterprise continuum.

      The Architecture Repository

      In module 11 we will have a closer look at the architecture repository, which is used to store and manage architecture content produced and consumed by the Architecture Development Method.

      You will be able to see that you need more from an architecture repository than just being able to store your architecture models!

  • Foundation Module 6: TOGAF Reference Models

    • The TOGAF Reference Models

      In this module we will introduce the two core reference models for foundation and common systems architecture defined in TOGAF that you can be added to the Architecture Continuum: the Technical Reference Model (TRM) and the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference model (III-RM).

  • Foundation Module 7: Architecture Capability Framework

    • Architecture Governance and the ADM

      The last module of this course focuses on the "people" side of architecture by introducing you to the architecture governance concepts available in TOGAF.

      You will look at the Architecture Capability Framework, and specifically, how architecture governance contributes to the successful execution of the Architecture Development Cycle.

      You should now realize how important it is to govern architecture within your organization.

  • Foundation Module 8: Learning Review

    • Revision Module - Key Learning Points

      This module looks again at the key concepts and learning outcomes for TOGAF Foundation level certification and should be used an aid when preparing for your exam.

      It is structured to reflect the key learning units required to pass the foundation level exam. Each learning unit is linked to the appropriate sections in the online TOGAF standard to enable you to quickly refer to the source information.

  • Certification Module 1: Preliminary Phase

    • The TOGAF 9 Preliminary Phase

      The first lesson is about the Preliminary phase, which is programmatic element of the architecture development method wherein the EA team is established, the governance is set up, the framework is tailored and other such things in order to set up the EA project for success.

      Architecture Governance

      In module 1, we discuss how in the preliminary phase, it is important to set up architectural governance in order to have successful architecture projects through a sustainable EA capability. In this module 2 we dig a little deeper into architecture governance.

      Business Scenario Techniques

      This lesson is on business scenarios techniques and how they help to drive high-level business requirements for an architecture project.

  • Certification Module 2: Architecture Vision (Phase A)

    • The Architecture Development Method: the Architecture Vision

      This is on phase A of the architecture development method: the Architecture Vision. In this module we'll explain how to apply this critical phase in the development of an enterprise architecture.

      Part of the inputs to this phase will stem from what was developed in the preliminary phase in terms of knowledge about the architecture practice, our governance, our team and our principles.

      Architecture Content Framework

      This module looks at the Architecture Content Framework. We will explain the purpose of this part of TOGAF, explain the main components and how the Architecture Content Framework relates to the Architecture Development Method.

      Stakeholder Management

      This lesson is on stakeholder management, which is considered a critical technique for TOGAF. In this module, you will learn how to apply the stakeholder management technique, the steps involved in developing the Stakeholder Map Matrix and how to use it as a guide to identify key players, their concerns, and which visuals or artefacts or viewpoints will help address these concerns.

      TOGAF Content Metamodel

      The purpose of this lesson is to explain the TOGAF content meta-model, which is a key part of the TOGAF Content Framework. The learning objectives for this module are to get to grips with the core meta-model concepts, it's elements, and extensions to the meta-model.

      Architecture Implementation Support Techniques

      This module is on architecture implementation support techniques, and how these can be applied to assist with implementation of architecture development work. One of the key elements here and one of the key techniques is how to reconcile interoperability requirements.

  • Certification Module 3: Business Architecture (Phase B)

    • Business Architecture Introduction

      In this module we discuss phase B of the TOGAF ADM and how it can be applied to develop architecture inputs for your enterprise transformation efforts.

      Business architecture is the main bridge between the vision of architecture change and the linkage to change in the information systems and technology environment.

  • Certification Module 4: Information Systems Architecture - Data Architecture (Phase C)

    • Information Systems Architecture - Data Architecture

      In this lesson we will focus on the heart of business transformation, moving toward Boundaryless Information Flow (The Open Group vision) and enhancing target information systems architectures from a data architecture perspective.

      We will look at the dynamics between data architecture and application architecture, and the inputs, steps, and outputs (as we do with all phases).

      Information Systems Architecture - Application Architecture

      This module looks at Phase C, and business transformation from an application architecture perspective. This includes understanding the dynamics between data architecture and application architecture, and then looking at inputs, steps, and outputs, as we do with all phases.

      Finally, to help see how to adapt the generic ADM, we continue with a Security Architecture overlay. This helps us look at how we can advance both Phase C and Security Architecture in a synergistic, disciplined, and comprehensive way.

      TOGAF Foundation Architecture: Technical Reference Model

      In Module 12 in which we will cover TOGAF's Technical Reference Model, which is an example of a Foundation Architecture in TOGAF's Enterprise Continuum. We'll cover key aspects of the TRM graphic and structure and the architecture objectives related to the use of the TRM in the ADM.

      It is important to remember that the TRM is generic; we will discuss as well how it could be tailored to be Organization-Specific.

      The Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model (III-RM)

      In Module 13 we will deal with the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model, one of the two TOGAF reference models, with this one being focused on Boundaryless Information Flow.

      We will provide background for the business and technical drivers for Boundaryless Information Flow and how the Integrated Information Infrastructure Reference Model or "Triple I-RM" satisfies the solution space with it's structure, graphic, and components.

  • Certification Module 5: Technology Architecture (Phase D)

    • Technology Architecture Introduction

      Phase D describes the development of a Technology Architecture. This phase of the ADM is critical to understand, especially because EA is related to business transformation in light of the overall technology that architecture addresses.

      As with all ADM Phases, Phase D consists of inputs, steps, and outputs and we will also provide a Security Architecture overlay to our generic discussion of this phase.

      Migration Planning Techniques

      This module looks at the techniques used to support migration planning in Phases E and F.

      We look at 5 phases: the Implementation Factor Assessment and Deduction Matrix; the Consolidated Gaps, Solutions, and Dependencies Matrix; the Architecture Definition Increments Table; the Transition Architecture State Evolution Table (which leverages the TRM) and the Business Value Assessment Technique.

  • Certification Module 6: Opportunities and Solutions (Phase E & F)

    • Opportunities and Solutions

      This module describes the process of identifying delivery vehicles (projects, programs, or portfolios) that effectively deliver the Target Architecture identified in previous phases.

      As we move through Phases E&F, iteration will occur around Solution Building Blocks in the forms of work packages, projects, and portfolios to address the capability transformation scoped in Phase A.

      Migration Planning

      This module addresses migration planning; that is, how to move from the'Baseline' to 'Target' Architectures by finalizing a detailed Implementation and Migration Plan.

      Phase F is an extremely important phase because it pulls together the stakeholders and the planning necessary to make key solutions and sequences of associated work packages.

  • Certification Module 7: Implementation Governance (Phase G)

    • Implementation Governance

      Phase G It is where all the information for successful management of the various implementation projects is brought together. With Phase G we have moved to a Critical Partner role. In this role we can still greatly influence the development of envisioned, enhanced enterprise capability.

  • Certification Module 8: Architecture Change Management (Phase H)

    • Architecture Change Management

      Phase H entails a lot more than the title implies. Besides Architecture Change Management, Phase H also plays a key governance role, establishing procedures for managing change to the new architecture.

      ADM Architecture Requirements Management

      Requirements Management is central to TOGAF's Architecture Development. This module looks at the process of managing architecture requirements throughout each phase of the ADM. Like the other 9 phases in the ADM, we use an pattern of inputs, steps, and outputs, and do a Security Architecture overlay.

      Architecture Partitioning

      In this module we discuss the classification criteria that are generally applied to architectures and how they can be leveraged to partition the enterprise into a set of architectures with manageable complexity and effective governance. For a large and complex Architecture Project, Architecture Partitioning may be essential.

      The Architecture Repository

      In this module we will look at how TOGAF provides a structural framework for an Architecture Repository that allows an enterprise to distinguish between the different types of architectural assets that exist at different levels in the organization. We will look at the key parts of the repository and how it supports the other parts of TOGAF.

      Guidelines for Adapting the ADM: Iterations and Levels

      In this lesson we look at Guidelines for Adapting the ADM in terms of Iteration and Levels. Iteration is a fundamental aspect of the ADM; the concept of levels helps to manage the complexity of EA development work.

      Guidelines for Adapting the ADM: Security

      We have already been looking at Security Architecture and Concerns in all the ADM Phases, but in this module we will take a closer look at the area of Security and the considerations that should be made during the application of the ADM.

      Guidelines for Adapting the ADM: SOA

      Having just looked at how to adapt the ADM for Security, in this module we will look at guidelines for adapting the ADM for the Service-Oriented Architecture style of architecture.

      Architecture Maturity Models

      Maturity is a critical aspect of Architecture Capability that needs to be assessed and addressed as part of the development of any Organization-Specific Architecture Development.

      In this lesson, we provide background on Capability Maturity Models and Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI). Then we show how maturity assessments link to the ADM.

      Architecture Skills Framework

      The TOGAF Architecture Skills Framework provides an assessment of the roles, skills, and experience norms required to deliver a successful enterprise architecture, and we will introduce it at a high level in this module.
