Easy to use: All technology must be easier to use so users aren’t spending to much time trying to figure out how to function it. Simple technology brings an easier understanding and more productivity for users. The Structure of TOGAF uses the Architecture Development Methods (ADM) and the Enterprise Continuum. The ADM is a method to develop and manage the lifecycle of an EA and form the center of TOGAF. It integrates components from the TOGAF documents to meet the business needs of an organization. The Enterprise Continuum provides a framework to supports architecture assets in executing the ADM. TOGAF Strengths and Weaknesses Listed below are some of the strengths that TOGAF has: 1.
