Recently I was getting more into the Enterprise Architecture topic and one of the areas I was investigating was TOGAF – The Open Group Architecture Framework. I have noticed that TOGAF is getting more and more recognition in the market and also it was interesting to me to compare how different IT architecture frameworks are similar and in the same time different. Because I am working as a Solution Architect at CSC and because I am familiar with CSC’s framework called Catalyst, I was also curious on how Catalyst potentially aligns to TOGAF.
The Open Group offers certification of TOGAF. The TOGAF Certified title is achieved by passing two exams – Part 1: Foundation and Part 2: Certified. To prepare for both exams The Open Group did a good job and prepared study guides, which can be obtained here.
Besides of the official study material it was really hard for me to find anything else that would be useful to study and get more into TOGAF. The only what I have I found useful was the Knotion provided introduction to TOGAF videos on YouTube. This company seems to be specializing in providing Enterprise Architecture trainings, including TOGAF. Here is the first video of the Knotion TOGAF 9 Trainings:
The rest of the videos are assembled in this YouTube playlist.
