About the Book
Why would anybody need a short book on TOGAF 9.2 if TOGAF itself is a 500 pages architecture framework, written by renowned experts from 300 top IT companies who sure know their stuff and will provide you with anything you need as an enterprise architect?
The answer is: YES – TOGAF 9.2 provides you with very helpful, very sound and extensive lists of WHAT to do in Enterprise IT Architecture (EITAM). The advice from various people working in Enterprise IT Architecture is: Use TOGAF! There’s no reason not to use it.
But TOGAF does not provide you with a QuickStart and Accelerators that give an Expert a fast to read ballpark view of which items of an IT enterprise architect’s task list are covered by TOGAF and which are not. And as you will also see, there are areas of an Enterprise IT Architect’s task list which are not covered by TOGAF at the moment. This makes it a rewarding task to give people interested in TOGAF an idea of what they can expect and what they have to find elsewhere.
You might also ask, why this book now: TOGAF 9.2 has been published on April 16th, 2017. It is more or less a not so big update of TOGAF 9.1 which is around since 2011. The last real major update was TOGAF 9, which was published in 2009. There's no known release date for TOGAF 10. Once TOGAF 10 appears, this book will be again be edited so that it will compare TOGAF 10 to the then actual state of ITEAM.
There has been a whitepaper version (state of TOGAF 9.1) of this book floating around in the internet for quite some time. But as TOGAF 10 still does not have a published release date, the author had the idea to upgrade that whitepaper to a somewhat improved Leanpub book.
