These days, not one day passes without hearing some news or other about Social Media. It is either Facebook IPO or Instagram being taken over etc., If you take Mobile, there are millions of Apps for iPhone and Android Phones. How about Analytics? There is a lot of talk about Big Data, Hadoop etc., Also, everyone has a 'Cloud' offering including Amazon, Microsoft, HP, Sales Force, IBM etc., etc. SOA the old stalwart is back in the news. SOA is being talked about in conjunction with all the other technologies mentioned here. Surely, all these trends have major impacts on the way we do business and consequently affect IT Strategy and Architecture in many organizations. Yet, we believe, the IT efforts in many organizations are at best 'Knee Jerk' reactions rather than a systematic approach to address these trends.
Enter TOGAF 9.1-The latest version of The Open Group Architecture Framework. TOGAF 9.1 provides details about how SOA can be enabled within TOGAF and how to develop Enterprise and Solution Architectures. In this webinar, we will provide you with an overview of these topics. Participants also receive a PDF file of TOGAF 9.1 Quick Reference Card.
