- “The course was pretty intense and well worth the money. This is mainly due to the professor who made this course not only interesting but provided some live examples which bring any academic lessons learnt to the real world which what I need in order to be successful. In the end I was.”By Matthew James (Enterprise Architect) from Swindon

- “Really enjoyed my training and met lots of great people who I will keep in contact with, including the trainer. Thanks”By Maya Patel (Technical Architect) from Liverpool

- “I was quite scared before joining the the course. The trainer helped ease my nerves and powered me through the course. I didn't just pass, I aced the course, what more could I want!”By Roger Accrington (Solution Architect) from Reading
- “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 entire course was organised and executed to perfection. 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.

- “I was very impressed with the Knowledge Academy; the trainer was very knowledgeable and guided us easily through the course.

- “As one of the more senior (in age terms) people undergoing training, I was quite daunted at the outset, but the first class training provided by Ian allayed my concerns. 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. Being back in the classroom and concentrating on new information without interruption for 3 days was challenging; however the tutor was very knowledgeable and combined coursework with practical exam preparation.

The TOGAF Approach
Organisations around the world have to adapt to the changes around them faster now, than ever before. Our entire society is information based and therefore this adaption not only concerns the organisation or the business itself but also their information systems. However, many organisations then find that their problems cannot be resolved with yet another IT system in place and thus look for an alternative method. This is when Enterprise Architecture is employed in order to support their decision making process. The information systems and their infrastructure is designed to reduce the complexity found and to bring simplicity into the boardroom and support critical decisions which are being made. It also brings in a level of control which is important to any decision making.
The core concepts and principles of TOGAF are the Enterprise Architecture method used to build them. Therefore a framework like TOGAF will always come into the spotlight in a situation like this.
The Open Group has gained fame through the use of TOGAF over the past few years with around half of its membership being from North America and the rest spread over Europe including the UK. TOGAF works for all types of organisations; large and small, public and private. TOGAF training has therefore been implemented by many organisations who desire members of their staff to be qualified in the framework to employ it into the business. The Open Group has a vision of the ability of information to flow between and within organisations freely/ easily as if there were no boundaries.
For individuals and organisations to desire to access this free-flowing of information, the TOGAF certification is available from Open Group to teach individuals the core processes and principles of the methodology.
The first version of TOGAF was published by the Open Group in 1995 which was a great milestone for them as an organisation. This version of TOGAF was based upon their existing architecture framework for IT architecture which had been used by the American Department Of Defence. Since 1995 there have been updated versions of TOGAF, each more successful than the last. TOGAF is known for its ability to maintain its success throughout the years and the changes in the world of IT and technology in the business world and therefore is the most popular form of enterprise architecture in the world. TOGAF is an open framework that can be adopted by any organisation to develop and maintain enterprise architecture. TOGAF is provided by the Open Group free of charge for their own use.
There are 3 core components of TOGAF;
- ADM – the steps to develop and maintain organisations Enterprise Architecture and how to implement it.
- The TOGAF resource base contains a number of resources; guidelines, templates and background information which are intended to support ADM.
- The Enterprise Continuum which is an approach used to build organisations with specific architectures from reusable components.
TOGAF is unique in its own right due to its focus on the organisational commitment as well as the actual enterprise architecture. For TOGAF, producing architecture is not the ultimate goal but ensuring the organisation benefits from TOGAF and the architecture is.
As previously mentioned, the TOGAF training course has grown in popularity due to thousands of organisations now reliant upon its framework. The Knowledge Academy believe that with the use of TOGAF within any organisation, success will be down the path. The TOGAF certification programme is designed for both individuals and organisations. Individuals can become TOGAF certified by demonstrating their knowledge of TOGAF through attending a training course and passing the exam at the end. Organisations who sell products like TOGAF are also known as being ‘TOGAF certified’. The training course can be instructor led – in a classroom or indeed taken virtually depending on the preference of the individual.
Once an individual is TOGAF certified they will recognise a mountain of job offers. Because TOGAF is now internationally accepted and has over 5000 practitioners it is desired by many employers around the world. There is an enormous demand in the UK alone for TOGAF practitioners, this is due to the following being attributed with the TOGAF certification;
- Generic skills such as; leadership, team working and personal skills
- Business skills such as an ability to handle business cases, business processes and strategic planning
- Enterprise architecture skills such as; the ability to do modelling, block design, applications and role design
- Programme and project management skills such as; the ability to manage change in the business, project management methods and methods and tools
- General knowledge of IT such as; a knowledge in brokering applications, migration planning and asset management
- Technical IT skills such as; software engineering and data interchange
- Legal environment meaning a knowledge in data protection laws, fraud etc.
So, it is worth keeping yourself up to date with the latest TOGAF processes and frameworks which are being made public as this is the enterprise architecture of the future.
