HOPEX also includes business architecture industry reference frameworks set by The Business Architecture Guild.
Developed by The Open Group, TOGAF® provides a common vocabulary and methodology for all architects and key stakeholders. HOPEX supports the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM) and complies with the TOGAF Architecture Content Framework (ACF).
HOPEX is certified for The Open Group's ArchiMate® 3 framework. The implementation of the framework is fully integrated with the HOPEX platform and it can be easily enhanced with other capabilities such as BPMN process modeling, IT portfolio management, and more.
