 Learning Objectives

Why should you attend this TOGAF9 Practitioner (Level 2) workshop ?

TOGAF, The Open Group Architecture Framework, is more and more used all over the world to design, evaluate, and build the right, fitting architecture for their organization. It is an open standard, managed by The Open Group. According to TOGAF, enterprise architecture (EA) is "the fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relations between each other and the environment, and the guidelines and principles that govern the design". TOGAF assists in the integration and management of IT resources from a strategy and business driven point of view. It describes the process of acceptation, production, use and maintenance of enterprise architecture.

During this two-day Practitioner training, you will study TOGAF version 9 in detail. This workshop is for those who already have some knowledge of TOGAF 9, either through following (or self-studying) the Level 1 course or by being involved in a TOGAF project, and want to thoroughly understand and apply TOGAF 9 to their daily work activities.

This course is also a preparation for the TOGAF level 2 multiple-choice, open-book exam at one of the Prometric test centers. Please refer to the website of The Open Group for more information on TOGAF certification.

Works, is something for you! Furthermore, it is organized in only 2 days, whereas most of our colleagues organize this training in 3 days, which saves you valuable time and money.
