Course Description

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF®) provides an approach for designing, planning, implementing, and governing an enterprise information technology architecture. In this course, you’ll learn about the TOGAF® Architecture Development Method cycle, a method for developing an enterprise architecture. This includes applying the ADM cycle from various perspectives such as business scenarios and risk. You will also learn about the TOGAF® Enterprise Continuum, its relationship with the ADM, and the Solutions Continuum. This course also covers the Content Framework with emphasis on the Content Metamodel, architectural artifacts, and deliverables, along with how they can be leveraged in an enterprise architecture program.
