TOGAF 9 ® Accredited Training
TOGAF® 9 Training

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF®) is becoming the de facto international certification for Architects at all levels. The Open Group updated the TOGAF® architecture framework to TOGAF® 9.1 Enterprise Edition in 2012.

A lot of the work on TOGAF® 9 was around not just what architecture should have, but how to make it work within business and technology scenarios. TOGAF 9 is a detailed method and set of supporting resources for developing an Enterprise Architecture within a business. It represents an industry consensus framework and methodology for enabling business execution.

The Knotion TOGAF® course prepares delegates for certification against the current TOGAF® 9 best practice as understood by Architects worldwide and documented under The Open Group’s Architecture Framework. The opportunity to obtain this certification is also included in the course.
