Introduction to Enterprise Architecture Framework And TOGAF

                                    I am very happy to say that, today i have given an interesting session on Enterprise Architecture Framework and overview of TOGAF 9.1.

                                    Initially i have covered the basics of Enterprise Architecture Framework (What is Enterprise,Architecture, Enterprise Architecture etc..) and later i have focused on how TOGAF help us to define Enterprise Architecture. Most of the time I have taken real time scenarios rather than explaining in theoretical.The overall session went very well with bunch of questions and discussion.  Down the line i am planning to take few more session on TOGAF. Here is the presentations .
