Hi All,

I have cleared the TOGAF certification on June of the last year but from that moment I haven't dealed with TOGAF anymore because until now I wasn't in the position to use it (I have still continued to work as developer).
Now I have changed company and as Software Architect my boss have asked me to manage a framework that it is present in the company. The development is still ongoing since that it has been developed from a couple of developer that have used it for one of their old project.
My target should be evaluate what is already present in the framework, understand what it is missing and provide the result to obtain the green light from the top management to invest effort in this framework and extend it for other use in the company. Further to this activity I have the change to evaluate this framework applying the use of it to a real project where I am involved for half part of my time (it is really a good occasion to go more in depth in the evaluation of it).

Based on the description that I have done, do you think that TOGAF is a valid framework to use to do this "Assessment" job? In case of yes, any suggestion on either what part of Togaf  to use and some resources where to take inspiration to use for the first time TOGAF (I mean some real example of applied TOGAF and not only tehorical book to read)?
What are other alternatives (tool, framework, best practices, etc) in the IT that I can follow to do this job considering that it is the first time for me?

Thanks in advance for your answer,
author & internet detective

TOGAF seems like a good choice here. The main reason is because you are evaluating a framework for your company vs focusing on the architecture for your project. Your project just happens to be the first test case.
