2. Framework Paper 2 Introduction The purpose of this paper is to describe The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) and the appropriate applications within the overall context on an Enterprise Architecture (EA) system. In addition, analyze and examine the significant impact on how an EA system influence, support, and enable an organization’s ability to a strategic decision making. Finally, answer how the EA is going to respond and adjust to the different business conditions. Description of Framework – Quality In 2009 The Open Group Architecture Framework, an independent industry association, was created and has maintained an enterprise framework known as TOGAF. It builds on an earlier framework known as TAFIM, or Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management, originally devised by the U.S. Department of Defense. As described by TOGAF (2013), it "provides the methods and tools for assisting in the acceptance, production, use, and maintenance of an enterprise architecture. It is based on an iterative process model supported by best practices and a re-usable set of existing architecture assets." The Open Group Architecture Framework is a reliable, practical method used to outline and develop an architecture enterprise that meets the needs of an organization. TOGAF allows companies to benefit of a structured approach to organize and govern its own software technology making sure that software development projects meet business objectives; having as its primary goal to develop its Architecture Development Method (ADM) as an industry standard method, and its tools and technologies can be used with any recognized enterprise framework.
