A definition of T.O.G.A.F.

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is an EA (or enterprise architecture) methodology that offers a high-level framework for enterprise software development.

The original development of TOGAF Version 1 in 1995 was based on the Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management (TAFIM), developed by the US Department of Defense.

The DoD gave The Open Group explicit permission and encouragement to create TOGAF by building on the TAFIM, which itself was the result of many years of development effort and many millions of dollars of U.S. government investment.

TOGAF helps to organize a development process through an approach aimed at timelines, staying on budget and aligning IT with business units to produce quality results.

Today most Global 50 companies and Fortune 500 companies have knowledge of TOGAF.

It is free for organizations to use internally, but it is not free for commercial purposes. So TOGAF does not according to everyone fit the definition of an open standard like BPMN and UML do.

However, businesses can have tools, software or training programs certified by The Open Group. There are currently eight certified TOGAF tools and 71 accredited courses offered from 70 organizations.
