TOGAF BA (Business Architecture) examines topics such as organization, governance, business strategy and business processes in the context of the TOGAF Standard. It has its roots in proven market best-practices, providing valuable practical knowledge for both experienced architects or total novices.
TOGAF BA goes into greater detail on business architectural elements than the standard TOGAF 9.2 syllabus. As such, TOGAF BA offers valuable insight even for those already certified in the main framework.
This course comes complete with practice exams and quizzes to help users prepare for the TOGAF BA Level 1 exam, and we even provide a FREE exam voucher for when students are ready for the real thing!
Why take this course?
‘Business Architecture’ is considered a specialization of general enterprise architecture. It focuses on the various business elements of organizational structure, including capabilities, information, processes and general organization. Practitioners examine the purpose of a business and how it achieves its goals, enabling them to achieve higher levels of efficiency as well as greater profits.
This course is designed to help students achieve the TOGAF Business Architecture Level 1 Credential. Students will gain a solid understanding of business capabilities, business modeling, information mapping, value streams and TOGAF business scenarios. The course explores each of these concepts in detail, for the purpose of developing successful business architectures via the TOGAF ADM.
TOGAF itself is a technology, industry and size-neutral standard. Virtually any organization can take advantage of the framework, and there are no prerequisites for taking this TOGAF BA course. TOGAF can even complement existing frameworks, making it easy for organizations to adopt without having to completely rework their existing practices.
Achieving the TOGAF BA credential will earn students three academic credits, as part of The Open Group Certification program. Successful students will also be awarded an ‘Open Badge’. Provided by Acclaim, these badges quickly verify students as being certified in the lucrative framework. The badge can even be displayed on company websites, emails and social media profiles.

Anyone seeking an understanding of Business Architecture based on the TOGAF Standard, Version 9.2
