Structure of the TOGAF Document | Executive Overview
The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) is aframework - a detailed method and a set of supporting tools - for developing an enterprise architecture. It may be used freely by any organization wishing to develop an enterprise architecture for use within that organization (see Conditions of Use).
TOGAF is developed and maintained by members of The Open Group, working within the Architecture Forum (refer to www.opengroup.org/architecture). Theoriginal development of TOGAF Version 1 in 1995 was based on the Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management (TAFIM), developed by the US Department of Defense (DoD). The DoD gave The Open Group explicit permission and encouragement to create TOGAF by building on the TAFIM, which itself was the result of many years of development effort and many millions of dollars of US Governmentinvestment.
Starting from this sound foundation, the members of The Open Group Architecture Forum have developed successive versions of TOGAF and published each one on The Open Group public web site.
If you are new to the field of enterprise architecture and/or TOGAF, you are recommended to read the Executive Overview (refer to Executive Overview), where you will find answers to questions suchas:
• What is enterprise architecture?
• Why do I need an enterprise architecture?
• Why do I need TOGAF as a framework for enterprise architecture?
Structure of the TOGAF Document
The structure of the TOGAF documentation reflects the structure and content of an architecture capability within an enterprise, as shown in Structure of the TOGAF Document [pic]

There are seven main parts to the TOGAF document:
(Introduction) This part provides a high-level introduction to the key concepts of enterprise architecture and in particular the TOGAF approach. It contains the definitions of terms used throughout TOGAF and release notes detailing the changes between this version and the previous version of TOGAF.
