THERE ARE 8 CHAPTERS IN PART 7CHAPTER 45 is an Introduction to and overview of Part VII: Architecture Capability Framework
CHAPTER 46 gives guidelines on Establishing an Architecture Capability using the ADMHow to establish and operate an Enterprise Architecture Board is covered in CHAPTER 47
While ensuring that projects have Architecture Compliance is in CHAPTER 48Defining and using Architecture Contracts is CHAPTER 49
And Architecture Governance is in CHAPTER 50CHAPTER 51 describes how to use Architecture Maturity Models to evaluate and quantify your EA maturity
CHAPTER 52 provides a set of role, skill, and experience norms in the Architecture Skills Framework
DEVELOPING ARCHITECTURE CAPABILITYFigure 45-1 shows the overall structure for a mature TOGAF Architecture Capability Framework, and Chapter 46 uses the ADM to provide a step-by-step guide on how this might be established.The Architecture Board is a cross-organization body that oversees the implementation of a successful architecture governance strategy. Its Role, Responsibilities, Set up, and Operation and explained in Chapter 47.
CONTRACTS (CHAPTER 49)TOGAF explains the role, and then describes the typical content of three kinds of Architecture Contracts: Statement of Architecture Work created
as a deliverable in Phase A of the ADM Contract between Architecture Design and
Development Partners - at the beginning of Phase G (Implementation Governance)
Contract between Architecting Function and Business Users - at the end of Phase G
COMPLIANCETOGAF gives definitions of the terms conformant and compliant, and provides levels of architecture conformance. It goes on to describe the purpose, timing, and common scenarios for Architecture Compliance Reviews (section 48.3). After this is it gives an overview of, and describes the roles and steps in, the Architecture Compliance Review Process. 48.5 Architecture Compliance Review Checklists provides a range of questions that may be used, relating to various aspects of the architecture such as Hardware and Operating Systems, Software Services and Middleware, and Applications. Finally there are a few Architecture Compliance Review Guidelines.
MATURITY MODELS (CHAPTER 51)The overview and background sections explain why maturity models are useful in EA, before describing the US Department of Commerce (DoC) enterprise Architecture Capability Maturity Model (ACMM). This consists of 6 maturity levels: None (0), Initial (1), Under Development (2), Defined (3), Managed (4), and Measured (5).There is an example based on the 9 EA elements: architecture process; architecture development; business linkage; senior management involvement; operating unit participation; architecture communication; IT security; architecture governance; and IT investment and acquisition strategy.
SKILLS FRAMEWORK (CHAPTER 52)TOGAF explains the need and goals for a skills framework. It then describes a set of EA Roles and Skill Categories. There are 7 categories: Generic Skills; Business Skills & Methods; EA Skills; Program or Project Management Skills; IT General Knowledge Skills; Technical IT Skills; and Legal Environment. These are shown in example skill tables, against 4 proficiency levels: Background, Awareness, Knowledge, and Expert.
GOVERNANCE (CHAPTER 50)An introduction explains the need to link EA governance with governance of other enterprise-wide disciplines. It also talks about the nature and characteristics of governance.The bulk of this chapter introduces an Architecture Governance Framework (section 50.2) explaining the overall conceptual structure and the key components of a typical organizational structure (shown in Figure 50-2).
TOGAF Poster Series #82TOGAF Simplified - Part 7 - Architecture Capability Framework
In this poster we summarise the key points from Part V of the TOGAF documentation. It is part of a series, TOGAF Simplified, that gives you a short, quick reminder of each section of the TOGAF documentation.
