Welcome to MDG Technology for TOGAF
Welcome to the MDG Technology for TOGAF - Enterprise Architect MDG Add-In, Version 3.0.
Using this technology, users of Enterprise Architect benefit from The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) within a powerful modeling environment based on open standards.
The Open Group Architecture Framework is one of the most widely accepted methods for developing enterprise architecture. TOGAF is an open framework, providing a practical, definitive and proven step-by-step method for developing and maintaining enterprise architecture.
The key to TOGAF remains a reliable, practical method - the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM) - for defining business needs and developing an architecture that meets those needs, applying the elements of TOGAF and other architectural assets available to the organization.
TOGAF embodies the concept of the Enterprise Continuum to reflect different levels of abstraction in an architecture development process. In this way TOGAF facilitates understanding and co-operation between actors at different levels. It provides a context for the use of multiple frameworks, models, and architecture assets in conjunction with the TOGAF ADM. By means of the Enterprise Continuum, architects are encouraged to leverage all other relevant architectural resources and assets, in addition to the TOGAF Foundation Architecture, in developing an organization-specific IT architecture.
