From TOGAF's POV, "Oracle IT Architecture Release 3 Essentials" is targeted towards an Application Architect who works primarily on the Oracle stack, whereas TOGAF is targeted towards the Enterprise Architect. Although both Enterprise Architect and App Architect can benefit from getting certified in both.
A note on the terminology:-
TOGAF defines Application Architect as someone who is responsible for designing the application layer. Oracle mostly calls this "middleware". Basically, no matter what you call it, "Oracle IT Architecture Release 3 Essentials" is for the person who is designing the application
TOGAF defines Enterprise Architect as someone who is responsible for the design of the enterprise. Because TOGAF uses the wordArchitect, A lot of people think TOGAF is primarily meant for software and hardware architecture. It's not. It defines Enterprise as everything. THis includes, software, hardware, people, locations, processes.... everything. So, the Enterprise Architect is responsible for figuring out how the whole company works.. not just the IT piece of it.
Essentially, the EA is the CEO/CTO/CIO/COO. TOGAF is targeted towards an executive position at a company that has a major IT component to it.
