 Learning Objectives

An opportunity for ArchiMate® users to meet, network and learn

ArchiMate has become an important standard for enterprise architecture modelling. This open and independent EA modelling language is now supported by different tool vendors and consulting firms. It allows enterprise architects to describe, analyze and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way. With ArchiMate 2.0, you can now also include the business motivations and business goals in the model (making it an even better communication tool with the business), as well as the programs, projects and migration paths to implement your enterprise architecture (making it an even better change instrument).

Topics which will be covered include (but your ideas and inputs are very welcome):

  • What is the current status of ArchiMate in terms of language, tools and the relationship with TOGAF ?
  • Who is using ArchiMate in Belgium and what are companies doing with this ?
  • What are the critical success factors in the good use of ArchiMate ?
  • Which tools are being used and what are their strenghts and weaknesses ?
  • How do people use ArchiMate in conjunction with TOGAF, BPMN, UML, ... ?
  • ...

This evening event is free of charge, but registration is required.
