Be guided by an actionable TOGAF process map in enterprise architecture development.
Be guided by an actionable TOGAF process map in enterprise architecture development. Our TOGAF ADM tool features a process map with a TOGAF ADM process template. It contains all the actionable work items your team need to design, plan, develop and govern an enterprise collaboratively with TOGAF ADM. Enterprise architects follow the steps and instructions defined in each work item to get the architecture developed. Deliverables will be automatically generated and archived in Architecture Repository, a visual File Cabinet.
Add and remove process phases into the map to reflect your enterprise architecture development needs. Re-arrange, add and remove actionable work items to reflect the activities to be performed. Configure your own EA process map to cope with your specific business problem and situation.
Work items mainly serve two purposes: Data collection and problem analysis.
Statement of architecture work, architecture principles and architecture change requests are examples of work items that collect information. This kind of work item require process worker to provide the information required, following a set of clear steps and instructions. The figure below shows the editing interface of such a work item. It's straight forward, intuitive and can be mastered without learning needed.
Perform analysis activities (e.g. TOGAF Maturity Analysis) within a work item, with information automatically consolidated and summarized in tabulated forms, ready for further rationalization and document production.
The information provided under work items will be consolidated and summarized in nice formatted, and yet customizable TOGAF deliverables. You can easily access the auto-generated copies under the Architecture Repository, a visual File Cabinet, or to generate one on-demand.

As process workers complete work items on the ADM process map, the information entered will be consolidated and summarized as TOGAF deliverables, which are automatically generated and archived in the Architecture Repository, a visual File Cabinet. Besides deliverable archiving, the Architecture Repository also provides various cabinets and drawers for you to store your architecture assets and artifacts.
You can easily find hundreds of references in the topic of Enterprise Architecture and TOGAF, but that will cost you hours of effort for searching the relevant information to move a step forward! Visual Paradigm provides you with inline, step-by-step guide-through instructions together with samples for each step.
One size really can't fit all, and that's why process tailoring is important. The Just-in-Time Process Map features a full set of generic work items that enable the acquisition and storage of diagrams and text throughout a custom process. Simply drag the work items you need from the gallery to the process map. Process workers can then perform the action required during process execution.
Assign task for each of the work items in the Just-in-Time process map to Tasifier, the Task Manager platform anytime and work collaboratively with your EA team.
