TOGAF is an industry standard EA framework that is available free of cost to any organisation wishing to develop an enterprise architecture for use within that organisation. More than 60 percent of the Fortune 50 and 80 percent of the Global Forbes 50 use TOGAF to reduce time, costs and risks associated with developing an EA and improve overall business agility.
