About the Presentation:
Efficiently and eloquently documenting a system's architecture can be a challenging effort. Architecture frameworks endeavor to provide a systematic template that will aid in codifying system architectures. There are many architecture frameworks to choose from but, this presentation will leverage the presenter’s experience with the Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) to illustrate the advantages and usefulness of using an architecture framework.
