Metaplexity offers organizations a unique approach to enterprise architecture team training and development, focusing on practical implementation of The Open Group's remarkable framework, TOGAF®. We offer both private and public courses, aimed at fitting client budgets, and we follow up with support services to help apply the framework in real-world situations.
Architecture Assessment Service
We provide an Architecture Assessment Service aimed at accelerating the development of the overall EA practice or of special projects and initiatives. The process is low-profile and cost-effective, making optimum use of available data and resources to provide management with next steps, justifications, and stakeholder buy-in for needed architectural changes.
