Client feedback shows that delegates on our courses will best engage when they can relate course topics to their own day-to-day practices and requirements. Where possible, we  run this course as a consultative, workshop-style event, in which discussion of relevant topics takes place in relation to the delegates' own applications and scenarios.

To facilitate this type of event, a subject matter expert leads the training, hands-on labs and discussions to ensure course topics are covered in a meaningful, relevant and timely manner. Delegates may be able to bring their own practical requirements and work to the course if the subjects and course topics are suitable.

Course overview

The Open Group Architecture Framework - TOGAF - has been designed to give architects a tried-and-tested framework in which to design, evaluate, and build scalable and robust enterprise architectures. The cornerstone of TOGAF is the Architecture Development Method (ADM)

Our TOGAF course is delivered by expert instructors who will impart their real-world experience of implementing enterprise-class architectures in large commercial, retail, banking and financial organisations, in a series of case studies aimed to help you make the right decisions about your own strategy. This course is non vendor-specific so you'll get good, imparital advice.

 The aim is to enable students to take best advantage of how to use TOGAF in their work and to gain an understanding of the necessary body of knowledge to achieve certification in the TOGAF CERTIFIED qualification.
