TOGAF Metamodel: A Key to a Good Start

Planning, scheming, execution, and governance in the field enterprise have never been an easy endeavor specifically when entrepreneurs deal with Information Architecture. AI makes complex systems as comprehensive as possible since it uses a metamodel initiated by the support of The Open Group Architecture Framework or TOGAF. The TOGAF Metamodel offers key business processes in business architecture, data architecture, applications architecture, and technology architecture. The framework components of TOGAF metamodel which include designing architecture, evaluating architecture, and building architecture has one major objective and that is to achieve the right architecture for the enterprise.

For a brief overview of TOGAF metamodel that includes design, evaluate, and built each will be defined respectively. The design component aims to answer the question, “What to design?” and the answer would be based on the baseline and target of each architecture domain of the business. Moreover, under this framework another question would be asked and that is “how to design?” using different resources available. On the other hand, the evaluate component deals with doing the review of different models to obtain significant details that would be helpful to the whole metamodel. And finally for the building component, a step-by-step method of eventually developing, implementing, and governing the architecture enterprise is formulated so that the end goal which is achieving right architecture of your business will be attained.

For the conclusion, one should be aware of the fact that: an effectively conceptualized TOGAF metamodel should have the five foundations which are necessary to make the metamodel feasible. These are the business architecture metamodel, information system architecture metamodel, technology architecture metamodel, requirements management metamodel, and consolidated reference metamodel.
