Bob Weisman, CEO Build The Vision Inc, Canada

The Open Group Architecture Framework Version 9 (TOGAF® 9) is an open structured planning methodology (a.k.a. architecture) that can be used at all levels of the enterprise from strategic to operational. TOGAF 9 is business value driven integrating enterprise architecture with the business planning, portfolio management (PMBOK, PRINCE2), operations management (ITIL), and solutions/system development frameworks. The outcome is the effective, efficient and business aligned deployment of corporate and IT resources in a simplified enterprise. TOGAF® 9 is modular allowing it to be used in part or complete in conjunction with other Enterprise Architecture methodologies (e.g. DODAF, FEA, Zachman) and with all types of business operating models. This tutorial provides an executive overview of TOGAF® 9 describing its key features and the benefits of using it within an organization.
