The Open Group TOGAF Standard Version 9.2 was published April 16, 2018. A common misconception voiced by several people at that time was that Enterprise Architecture in general and the TOGAF Standard are barriers to enterprise agility.

In September 2017, The Open Group began working with Acclaim, (a division of Pearson VUE, an exam delivery company), to introduce the concept of “Open Badges” to The Open Group IT4IT™ and Open Certified Architect certification programs. Since then, we have been busy – we have now rolled out this program across our entire certification portfolio and as a result have invited everyone with a current certification with The Open Group to participate. This has resulted in over 20,000 badges being issued, with no surprises that the TOGAF®, a standard of The Open Group, badges are the most popular.
