ARCHITECT FRAMEWORK2AbstractThe Architecture frameworks are the approaches used in architecture type of modeling.They give a structured and systematic mechanism to designing of the systems. In the recent timesthere has been a low or a little analysis of their functionalities in the whole system and thesoftware engineering and they are considered to be very satisfactory. This study provides an in-depth evaluation of the open group architecture framework (TOGAF) and OMB federalenterprise architecture framework (FEAF), and to give a comparison of the two frameworks,their usefulness, strengths and weaknesses. It signifies the two classes of the architecture andpinpoints some of their deficiencies. To get rid of these weaknesses, it is advisable to use a costbenefits and access the risky of the architect. The comparison between the two frameworks ismade and their weaknesses and the strengths also are discussed in this study. In this paper, weshall discuss in detail the above two architecture. They are commonly used as an instrument forimproving business and the computer technology in various organizations.IntroductionAccording to Garland and Shaw, software architecture deals with the issues beyondalgorithms and also the data structures of computation. Architecture frameworks are approachesused in architecture modelling (Sessions, R. (2007).). These methods provide a well-structuredand organized to designing systems. Architecture is a major role-player in the evolution ofinformation systems. Enterprise architecture frameworks were made to make the enterprisearchitecture process easy and to lead an architect through all areas of architect development. Thispaper seeks to give an in-depth evaluation of the open group architecture framework (TOGAF)
ARCHITECT FRAMEWORK3and OMB federal enterprise architecture framework (FEAF), and to give a comparison of thetwo frameworks, their usefulness, strengths and weaknesses.The open group architecture framework (TOGAF)The open group architecture framework can be an approach for enterprise architecturethat can provide a procedural method for planning, designing implementing as well as governingan enterprise data. It provides two different definitions of architecture: first, it refers architectureas a formal explanation of a system or a very detailed plan of the system at the component levelto give the guidelines of the process of its implementation. Secondly, it defines architecture asthe structure of components as well as their inter relationship, the principle and guidelinesgoverning they evaluation and designs over time (Land, et al2009).
