TOGAF: Practical implementation-1




TOGAF is a generic framework. I believe no enterprise uses the TOGAF in its generic form. Every enterprise customizes the TOGAF as per its needs. TOGAF can be used in two ways: Enterprise level and Individual level. Individual level means how a professional can use on a project level in more practical manner. This topic covers individual level TOGAF usage. How TOGAF is used practically instead of just being a theory. This whole discussion is about using a framework in a real environment, a practical implementation. TOGAF is an enterprise framework. We will break down TOGAF and use it as  a solution framework.It No more will be a TOGAF. It will more of a stripped down TOGAF.
First, we will divide the TOGAF framework into different sections and then we will go deep in each section.
I have divided TOGAF under following categories
1)      Requirements

2) Solutioning


3)   Delivery

4)       Governance/Change Management
As part of our discussion, we will go through different phases. This topic will be complete in multiple blogs. I
Now we have down the ground work of breaking and stripping of TOGAF into different parts. In my next blog, we will start with Requirements section. This is the most important and the biggest part. This section will be further divided into 4 parts. Each part tells us how to get requirements. Once the requirement section is done, then rest is easy.

So For Requirements
1) Business Architucture- http://technologyandarchitecture.blogspot.in/2014/05/togaf-practical-implementation-2.html

  1. Hi Abhishek...Good start ...But I think we are missing on the most important part of TOGAF which is solution continuum....Solutioning specifically doesn't go in isolation ..Phase C Phase D and phase E normally works in iterative mode....

    1. Sudhanshu, You are correct. But here the approach is to take step by step different parts of the solution like Business architecture which will merge together into a solution

Data Center Migration

Note: This blog is written with the help of my friend Rajanikanth
Data Center Migrations / Data Center Consolidations
Data Center Consolidations, Migrations are complex projects which impact entire orgnization they support. They usually dont happen daily but once in a decade or two. It is imperative to plan carefully, leverage technology improvements, virtualization, optimizations.
The single most important factor for any migration project is to have high caliber, high performing, experienced technical team in place. You are migrating business applications from one data center to another and there is no scope for failure or broken application during migration. So testing startegy should be in place for enterprise business applications to be migrated.
Typical DCC and Migrations business objectives

·Improve utilization of IT assets ·DC space & power peaked out - business growth impacted ·Improve service levels and responsiveness to new applications ·Reduce support complexi…

HP CSA Implementation

I know the above picture is little confusing but don’t worry I break it down and explain in detail. By the time I am done explaining you all will be happy. HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS 1.VMware vSphere infrastructure / Microsoft Hyper V: For the sake of Simplicity we will use VMware vSphere. We Need vSphere 4.0 /5/5.5 and above and vCenter 4.0 and above ready and installed. This is the first step. 2.We need Software medias for HP Cloud Service Automation, 2.00, HP Server Automation, 9.02, HP Operations Orchestration (OO)9.00.04, HP Universal CMDB 9.00.02, HP Software Site Scope, 11.01,HP Insight Software6.2 Update 1 3.DNS, DHCP and NTP systems are already installed and configured. NTP information should be part of VM templates 4.SQL Server 2005 or Microsoft® SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 , Oracle 11g, both 32-bit and 64-bit versions may be used for CSA database.
5.We will install  HP Cloud Service Automation, 2.00, HP Server Automation, 9.02, HP Operations Orchestra…

Openstack- Its importance in Cloud. The HP Helion Boost

Every enterprise expects few things from cloud computing, mainly:

· Auto scaling: The workload should increase and decrease as needed by the IT environment.

· Automatic repair: If there is any fault or crash of the application or the server, it automatically fix it

· Fault tolerant: The application or underlying technology is intelligent enough to make itself fault torrent

· Integrated lifecycle: It should have integrated lifecycle

· Unified management: Its easy to manage all different aspects of technology

· Less cost

· Speed


Its year 2014. till now only 5% to 7% enterprises are using cloud computing. Such a small number. Its a huge opportunity and a vast majority for anyone who is interested in providing cloud computing services.
Current IT environment is very complex. You just cant solve all your problems with cloud computing.
There are legacy systems, databases, data processors, different hardware and software. You name it , there are so many technology available in just o…
