A couple of my colleagues are preparing to TOGAF exams (and training). As is the case with these things the subject of tips, tricks and helpful resources come up. I’ve blogged in the past on this, and now made those blog entries easier to find with a TOGAF category on my blog (https://mp3muncher.wordpress.com/category/technology/togaf/). But I also came across a couple of useful resources through the TOGAF for Architecture Linkedin Group. Particuarly a free Massively Open Only Course (MOOC) provided by an Australian University – https://www.open2study.com/courses/introduction-to-enterprise-architecture. The MOOC contains almost 4.5 hours of video material – so it will give a solid picture (where as a Architecting the Enterprise training is 4 days) (note Architecting the Enterprise appear to have tweaked their branding now to AtE). In addition to this a couple of other sites / books that came recommended in recent LinkedIn discussions are:
- Tom Graves’ blog
- Book on Archimate (and Archie the free Archimate tool) although Archimate is not part of TOGAF itself
- Blurring the Boundaries Blog
Update: It is worth registering with Orbus Software‘s website (registration is free) as they provide a substantial number of resources on TOGAF like postes of each of the key phases which can be downloaded once registered. In addition they have a number of blogs regarding EA, ITIL etc.
