Using TOGAF® to Develop and Implement Enterprise Architecture in Government - U.S. Federal Agencies as Example
The US government and TOGAF® both maintain strongly that a well described business architecture is key to the development of overall enterprise architecture. US Federal enterprise architectural guidance, including that found in FEA and FSAM, offers high-level advice on methodology for describing business architectures. Phase B (Business Architecture) of the TOGAF 9 ADM (Architecture Development Method), offers highly detailed process guidance which maps closely to FEA/FSAM. This whitepaper will describe this mapping and show examples of artifacts that can be created using FEA/FSAM in concert with TOGAF.
