A more efficient Information Technology or IT operation, a better Return of Investment or ROI and simpler procurement – these are all the benefits of The Open Group Architecture Framework or TOGAF.
So what is TOGAF and how does it bring about these benefits to a business organization? As the name implies, TOGAF is maintained by the Open Group. Basically, it is an architectural framework which is an industry standard. Any business organization which aims to utilize TOGAF for developing their IT architecture is free to do so.
Consequently, the IT architecture of your business is essential for several reasons. First, it helps you plan and manage your IT investment in such a way that your goals as a business will be met.
