Troux 9 Certified by The Open Group, Meets the TOGAF 9 Tool Standards Requirements; Gives EA Buyers A New Level of Confidence
Austin, Texas - (May 30th, 2012) - Troux™, the global leader in Enterprise Portfolio Management (EPM) and Enterprise Architecture (EA) solutions, today announced its flagship product, Troux 9, has received the industry’s first TOGAF 9 Tool product certification from The Open Group. TOGAF, an Open Group standard, is an EA industry standard providing a comprehensive approach for design, planning, implementation and governance of enterprise architecture programs. Thousands of EA’s have received TOGAF 9 professional certification, but Troux is the first product to successfully complete the tool certification process.
TOGAF 9 Tool Certification validates Troux’s ability to meet practical market requirements and provides a warranty of product compliance to a pre-determined set of industry standards and best practices. With the certification, Troux customers receive reliable assurance of conformance to these standards and minimize the need to do separate, internal compliance testing. This helps simplify the evaluation process, and reduces complexity, cost and risk associated with the deployment of Troux solutions.
“With over 6500 professionals earning TOGAF certification in the last 12 months alone, we know we are setting the standards for the EA industry,” said Allen Brown, president and CEO of The Open Group. “Troux is to be commended for being the first EA solution provider to successfully attain tool certification and meet the rigorous demands of our standard.”
“We believe TOGAF is a fundamentally important cornerstone of the EA industry. TOGAF has always been important for individual certification, and now we are finding that same certification applied to our solutions can provide immense value to our EA customers,” said Bill Cason, chief technology officer of Troux.
“Now customers know that when they partner Troux, they are deploying a TOGAF 9 certified tool product. This understanding provides decision-makers with the confidence that Troux supports and is compliant with industry standards and best practices,” continued Cason.
