TOGAF is an Architecture Framework method created by The Open Group which is used to help design systems. This tool will help identify the needs to fulfill, what information should be gathered, and how to monitor the development and implementation of a system.
The most important part of the TOGAF framework is that it defines a method to achieve the goal. It provides guidelines, templates, models, tools, methods, processes, and more which cover the entire lifecycle.
