 Learning Objectives

Why should you attend this ArchiMate® 2.0 certification workshop ?

In most organizations, every business and technical domain speaks its own language, draws its own models, and uses its own techniques and tools. Communication and decision making across domains, necessary for business change, is thus seriously impaired. Just like an architectural drawing in classical building architecture describes the various aspects of the construction and use of a building, ArchiMate offers a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems, and technical infrastructure. This insight helps stakeholders to design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between these business domains.

ArchiMate is a graphical design language for modeling and analyzing enterprise architecture. just like TOGAF® (The Open Group Architecture Framework), it is a standard of The Open Group. On January 31st 2012, The Open Group officially launched ArchiMate 2.0, which links up with TOGAF even better. This simplifies applying a fully integrated Enterprise Architecture approach within your organization. Besides the core concepts (indicated as "ArchiMate Core") that model company, application and infrastructure layers of Enterprise Architecture, the language is expanded with two extensions, the Motivation Extension, to optimally model stakeholders, motivation for change, business goals, principles and wishes, and the Implementation & Migration Extension.

This training is presented by ArchiMate 2.0 experts from BiZZdesign, who holds an ArchiMate® 2.0 Commercial License issued by The Open Group. I.T. Works acts as a service provider to BiZZdesign and is not required to be licensed by The Open Group.
