By The Open Group
Since its inception more than two decades ago, TOGAF®, an Open Group standard, has grown to become the de facto global framework for creating Enterprise Architectures.
Thousands of companies worldwide have adopted and adapted TOGAF to transform their businesses. Facts about TOGAF include:
- 80% of the Fortune Top 50 companies use TOGAF
- Over 60,000 individuals hold certifications in TOGAF 9
- TOGAF users are based in 120 countries
- Greater than 60 accredited training courses available globally
The Open Group wants to ensure that TOGAF maintains its momentum worldwide and realizes that doing so cannot be done without capturing the voices beyond the The Open Group members. Additionally, there is an increase in the number of licensed TOGAF professionals who want to follow up their training with a forum for discussion and sharing. Thus, there is an opportunity to provide TOGAF Users to easily Share, get Enlightenment, and Express their needs (’SEE’ TOGAF).
The starting off point for The Open Group was to begin hosting TOGAF User Group Meetings, which move in a direction where users get more involved in their structure. With these meetings, The Open Group gets an opportunity to Harvest ideas on use, Educate users, have Access to larger user base and broader set of Requirements (‘HEAR’ about TOGAF use).
The User Group Meetings are open to all interested people and are free to attend.
So there is a win-win for TOGAF Users to meet. This part of the story is yet to be written!
