Today Architecting the Enterprise notified TOGAF community that their Chief Architect, John Polgreen, Ph. D will present on a very interesting topic of TOGAF alignment to business architecture. The webinar is entitled, “Describe your Business Architecture Using The Open Group Framework (TOGAF) in Government Enterprise Architecture” and will be hosted on January 24, 2011 at 8:30 PST.
Once government enterprise architects accurately describe the business architecture of their agency, they then proceed to describe the technical architecture: namely the sum of the applications, data and technology (infrastructure) architectures. US Federal enterprise architectural guidance, including that found in FEA and FSAM, offers high level advice on methodology for describing technical architectures. TOGAF 9 offers highly detailed process guidance which maps closely to FEA/FSAM. The webinar will describe this mapping and show examples of artifacts that can be created using FEA/FSAM in concert with TOGAF.
Panelists will present case studies.
Participants will learn:
- How the technical architecture (applications, data and technology) depend on an understanding of the business architecture of an agency
- How the detailed guidance of TOGAF 9 maps to FEA, FSAM and other US civilian enterprise architecture guidance for describing technical architectures
- What TOGAF artifacts (catalogs, matrices and diagrams) can be useful in describing technical architectures
