In the end I was.”By Matthew James (Enterprise Architect) from Swindon

- “When I registered for training at The Knowledge Academy I was a little sceptical whether they would be able to train me in one week, especially as their prices were significantly lower than other service providers. However, from just the first day I realised that they operate on a theme of excellence, which made me feel confident in my ability to learn the material, pass the exams, and be able to apply the theory at work. The trainers are enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. The whole booking process was stress-free and the course, though intensive, was perfect and flexible to our needs as a group. They also provide invaluable practice documents as part of the course which I found very helpful. I have already recommended The Knowledge Academy to friends.”By Otis Marshal (Enterprise Architect) from Edinburgh

The booking process was clear and very straight forward, the pre-course material was well balanced and sufficient to enable the course to be understandable from day 1.

The course was well-paced and we had lots of practice at simulated exam questions (at home and in class), so by the time I sat the paper I was feeling reasonably relaxed about the whole thing. If anyone out there feels they are maybe past going on intensive courses and sitting exams, I would encourage you to go for it - if I can do it at 60, so can you!”By Alex D'Souza (Technical Architect) from Swindon
- “I thoroughly enjoyed my intensive week.

The Importance of Enterprise Architecture
Over the past few decades there have been a considerable amount of changes in the world. These changes have forced managers to make complex decisions regarding their enterprise architecture and how it functions within their organisation.
We have been using the internet for the past 20 years as a means to communicate with one another – it is almost impossible to imagine a world without it. Thus, the business world has had to change…
Organisations around the world, in all sectors use electronic commerce and participate in networks and supply chains in order to increase their chances of success in this ever competitive world. Globalisation has also come forward and is forcing organisations to adapt faster than ever before. Information is a vital part of any business and its success therefore the internet has created a fast-track approach to gaining this. Therefore the competition has also enlarged. If an organisation is unable to keep up with the changes of the technological world they will be forced out of the competition and replaced with an organisation that can. It is a cut-throat business world.
Today, organisations try to function on the idea of a ‘boundary less organisation’ which is where The Open Group has based its vision of enterprise architecture. The Open Group has named it; The Boundaryless
Information Flow, whereby they want to develop, maintain and spread standards in order to support organisations that have to adapt to these new changes in the world regarding how information flows. However, more often than not managers do not have the time or the resources to research which method will work best for their organisation and therefore many decisions being made are based on little or no research. This inevitably leads to failure.
This is where TOGAF comes into play – developed by The Open Group.
TOGAF introduces the idea of Governance. Running a business is no longer simply about a ‘vision’ but rather a clear strategy with realistic planning along with evidence that the company is able to pursue its goals in a controlled and predictable way. It is vital that the manager is in control.
The truth is; the business landscape is becoming increasingly aggressive and competitive due to the above reasons; the internet and the flow of information along with globalisation. The most important aspect of governance is the idea of providing strategic management whereby everything is recorded including; key performance indicators, production throughput, costs and employee efficiency. If an organisation wants to succeed – everything must be controlled, measured and monitored. By employing a suitable governance structure within an organisation helps to overcome some of the problems regarding decision making and risk management. This is why many organisations around the world decide to take on the TOGAF methodology as TOGAF knows and understands the importance of Governance and Enterprise Architecture.
