The architecture concept may be considered to be one of the more general key concepts of TOGAF. At the end, the reason for TOGAF's existence can be found in the phenomenon of (digital) architecture.
"'architecture' has two meanings depending upon the context:
- A formal description of a system, or a detailed plan of the system at component level to guide its implementation
- The structure of components, their inter-relationships, and the principles and guidelines governing their design and evolution overtime."
