TOGAF 10th Edition Quick Start Guide for Enterprise Architects

objectarchitects offers a short book on what an enterprise architect can expect from TOGAF 10th Edition - the latest version of „The OpenGroup Enterprise Architecture Framework“
As the open group delivered a maintenance version of TOGAF with version 10 in April 2022 the paper had to be updated.

Find the small book here.

From the Preface:

Why would anybody need a 50 pages short book on TOGAF 10th edition TOGAF itself is an architecture framework with moire than 1000 pages, 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 10th Edition provides you with very helpful, very sound and extensive lists of WHAT to do in IT Enterprise Architecture. The advice from various people working in IT Enterprise Architecture is: Use TOGAF! There’s no reason not to use it.

But TOGAF does not yet 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 IT Enterprise 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.


As a service, you will also find a table for download here that shows where the content blocks of the TOGAF editions have been located in the newer editions since TOGAF 7 - you can also see what has been newly added. The table has been made available for download here because it simply cannot be displayed properly on one page of a book anymore.
