Read the Danish version of the framework here.
We have defined the most important architect roles and competences, that is part of the Architecture work according to FDA - The common public-sector digital architecture and TOGAF.
Danish IT Society Architecture Competence Framework - DIT ACF can be used to, amongst other things, to map the architecture competencies by any organisation as part of the strategy and as an individual as part of career planning.
DIT ACF is a continuation and update of Agency of Digitisation’s OIO Architecture Framework: Architect roles and competences. The OIO Architecture Framework was discontinued in 2020 since the arrival of the new common public-sector digital architecture – FDA - in 2017. Since FDA does not contain a framework for architecture roles and competencies – in opposition to The OIO Architecture Framework, Danish IT Society has continued that part under DIT ACF – Danish IT Society Architecture Competence Framework.
DIT ACF is continuously updated by Danish IT Society’s Advisory Board for Danish IT Society Architecture Certification.
The general term "IT architect" is expanded in six architect roles that is part of the digitalization work. That six specializations or profiles on the "IT architect" – each have their own focus area. With the simple profile tool, you can measure your own or others IT architectural competences. Use the tool, when you need to set together an architect team or in relation to recruitment.
Each architect role is described in words and with a profile based on 11 competence dimensions.
One specific role does not necessarily need to be filled out by one person. The competence dimensions simply show the collection of competences that is recommended to have for a given role.
You can also go directly to the profile tool; a spreadsheet that will generate a visual competence profile (spiderweb). In the spreadsheet, you can fill in your own assessment, that will be held against the recommended values.
