This book captures and communicates the wealth of architecture experience Capgemini has gathered as a member of The Open Group - a vendor- and technology-neutral consortium formed by major industry players - in developing, deploying, and using its "Integrated Architecture Framework" (IAF) since its origination in 1993.
Today, many elements of IAF have been incorporated into the new version 9 of TOGAF, the related Open Group standard.
The authors, all working on and with IAF for many years, here provide a full reference to IAF and a guide on how to apply it.
In addition, they describe in detail the relations between IAF and the architecture standards TOGAF and Archimate and other development or process frameworks like ITIL, CMMI, and RUP.
Their presentation is targeted at architects, project managers, and process analysts who have either considered or are already working with IAF - they will find many roadmaps, case studies, checklists, and tips and advice for their daily work.
