Architecture Forum General Member Meeting

The TOGAF 9.1 standard provides the foundation for an enormous body of knowledge about Enterprise Architecture.

  • Some of this is published by The Open Group: much is published by other organisations
  • Some documents are broadly applicable; some provide guidance for the usage of the TOGAF framework in a more specific context
  • Some documents relate the TOGAF framework to advanced developments in IT

Any enterprise planning to use TOGAF needs to identify what resources are available to help adapt TOGAF to their specific context.

A proposal is being developed to establish an "Eco-system Standing Committee", charged with documenting, promoting and protecting the eco-system built around the TOGAF standard.

This meeting of the Architecture Forum will be dedicated to a discussion about the TOGAF "eco-system" .. "The World of TOGAF"

09:00 - 9:30 Current state of professional certifications - James de Raeve

09:30 - 10:30 The TOGAF Eco-System
