NAF Training – NATO Architecture Framework Training – Hands-on

The NAF Training – NATO Architecture Framework Training course provides a rigorous method for understanding, analyzing, and specifying: Capabilities, Systems, Systems of Systems (SoS), Organisational Structures and Business Processes.

NAF Training – NATO Architecture Framework Training. The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is an alliance of 26 countries from North America and Europe committed to fulfilling the goals of the North Atlantic Treaty signed on the 4th April 1949. In accordance with the Treaty, the fundamental role of NATO is to safeguard the freedom and security of its member countries by political and military means. The NATO Architecture Framework (NAF) is an Enterprise Architecture (EA) framework by the NATO. The role of an enterprise architecture is to provide decision support, in the context of the enterprise strategy, for the use of resources (including processes and procedures) in the enterprise. In other words, the architecture is responsible for defining how resources will be used to support enterprise strategy and benefit the NATO goals and objectives.

NAF provides guidance on describing communication and information systems (or C3 systems) through architectures and provides the rules, guidance, and templates for developing and presenting architecture descriptions to ensure a common denominator for understanding, comparing, and integrating architectures in NATO. The application of the NAF is designed to enable architectures to contribute most effectively to acquiring and fielding cost-effective and interoperable military capabilities. NAF Training – NATO Architecture Framework Training provides the attendees with details of NATO Architecture Framework and its applications using real world scenarios and case studies. A detailed Transition Guidance from NAF v2 to NAF v3 and concepts behind NAF 4 is provided.
