Description

Description

To obtain maximum business and technology benefits for an organization using Autodesk, Inc., products, designing a complete architecture through proper system requirements is essential. In 2015, Autodesk Consulting began capitalizing on standards derived from The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF) for design and implementation activities. TOGAF is designed to organize information system components as building blocks to help conceptualize, design, and plan around deployment. This class will discuss how Autodesk Consulting has successfully used the approach by describing how implementations have benefited from applying methodology components. We will share examples from actual implementations, as well as best practices. We will also discuss how you can use these approaches for your own implementation work.
