- So, now that you've got a basic understanding of the TOGAF framework in the first module, we'll now be exploring some of the concepts that were covered. We'll start by taking a brief look at the architecture development method and follow-up with other areas covered in the core concepts. At the end of this module is a PDF resource containing the diagrams used throughout this module, as well as a knowledge check to help you reinforce what you've learned.
About the Author
In a varied career that began in 1974, John Coleshaw has trodden a relatively unusual path whereby his roles have split evenly between Business and IT. In the early 80s he was the Credit Manager for a multi-national electronics company, and at the same time built a computerised financial and credit analysis tool using the original version of the IBM PC. In the mid-80s, whilst performing the role of senior underwriter in the Credit Insurance industry, he managed the IT system, as well as developed an innovative risk analysis tool. At the start of the 90s, as a manager in a financial information company, he developed an early form of expert system whose purpose was to predict corporate failure.
His current career as an IT trainer began in 1998, specialising at the time in Object Oriented programming languages. In 2002 he started developing and delivering IT Architecture training and has now had the opportunity to meet and discuss architecture matters with over a thousand architects. The courses he trains now span both The Open Group (TOGAF and ArchiMate), and BCS.
He has a book to his name, one written in the late 80s on Credit Risk Analysis.
