Leaders of technology standards & certifications

About The Open Group

The Open Group is a global consortium that enables the achievement of business objectives through technology standards. Their diverse membership of over 800 organisations includes systems, solutions suppliers, customers, integrators, academics, tool vendors, and consultants across different industries.

They are leaders in the development of open, vendor-neutral technology standards and certifications, and in 1995 they developed TOGAF. By 2016, 80% of Global 50 companies and 60% of Fortune 500 companies used the framework.

The TOGAF® Standard, a standard of The Open Group, is a proven Enterprise Architecture methodology and framework used by the world’s leading organisations to improve business efficiency. It helps to define business goals and align them with architecture objectives around enterprise software development.


There are many benefits to earning a TOGAF certification, to both individuals and organisations, including:

Learning a common language – Earning your TOGAF certifications and becoming certified in these frameworks will enable you to work and collaborate with other TOGAF architects because the certification is unique to enterprise architecture professionals. To plan and implement the framework requires excellent communication skills, and you will need to explain the principles and elements of the structure.

Meeting an organisation’s needs better – Businesses continuously look for efficient ways to get tasks completed with the least amount of effort and time. TOGAF certifications will teach you how to achieve your organisation’s requirements adequately. You will determine how your organisation spends its budget and identify key areas where it can reduce its costs.

You will also learn how to organise your team to better function as a unit and optimise processes to reduce friction and ensure all departments work efficiently.

Earning new opportunities – Large organisations are continuously looking for exceptional talent and experts in different fields. With your TOGAF certifications, you can advance your career in this sector, because you have been trained and tested by an industry-recognised board to a high standard. Certified professionals often move into higher salary brackets, averaging £70,000+ in the UK.

Improving managerial skills – For individuals looking to become department heads, TOGAF certifications help boost your CV and give you the boost required to be presenting with new opportunities at this level. As a professional, TOGAF certifications allow you to design an infrastructure, which promotes the efficient use of resources, allowing you to oversee everything in the development process, and coordinate roles, tasks, and review performance.
