Infosys Expands Enterprise Architecture Capabilities with Record Number of TOGAF Certified Architects
October 10, 2006: Infosys Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ:INFY) today announced that 148 professionals have achieved certification for The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAFTM 8), resulting in the largest number of professionals with this accreditation at any one company in the world. The Open Group is a vendor- and technology-neutral consortium focused on open standards and global interoperability within and between enterprises.
Sohel Aziz, EMEA Head for Technology Consulting at Infosys commented: "TOGAF is the most important and well adopted standard for developing and implementing enterprise architecture activities. Our commitment to The Open Group's TOGAF standards ensures we have the skills, capabilities and processes to enable our customers to execute and govern Enterprise Architecture to derive tangible business value."
As businesses demand increased alignment from IT to enable the organization to adapt rapidly to the changing environment, TOGAF has emerged as the industry standard architecture framework for companies wishing to develop enterprise architecture within their own organization. TOGAF Certification is an assurance program providing multiple classes of certification for architecture service providers, tool vendors and individual enterprise architects.
Allen Brown, CEO, The Open Group commented: "TOGAF has gained momentum over the past two years through the contributions of over 120 companies - all working together to develop best practices in enterprise architecture for the industry at large. Infosys is an active contributor to the Architecture Forum and reinforces the importance of this standard with its 148 certified architects, the largest amount of TOGAF certified practitioners at any single practice in the world."
