EAM based on TOGAF 9 Foundation (Level 1)

Course Description


The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is the international de facto standard for performing Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM). TOGAF and EAM support your digital transformation by providing you with the approaches, processes, methodologies, and templates to develop a successful implementation strategy.

This EAM course teaches the basic concepts of EAM based on the TOGAF 9.2 specification and prepares participants for the TOGAF Foundation (Level 1) certification. This course is organized by ETC (Enterprise Training Center) and is not accredited from the Open Group.

Practice-Based Approach

The exam-relevant information of the TOGAF specification is presented with a structured approach and supplemented with practice-oriented exercises so that participants gain clarity about the components of the TOGAF framework and their interrelationships.

In addition to the discussion of the theoretical topics, deliverables and approaches from actual projects are presented and discussed in the group so that participants understand the real-world challenges of enterprise architecture. This directly impacts their ability to pass the TOGAF certification exam and helps them succeed in their current projects.
