Toolkit Tuesday Broadcasts Series

The Open Group has collated a portfolio of the most pertinent Standards, Frameworks, Reference Architectures, Tools, Models, and Guides for Architects together in one place.  What they all have in common though is that they have been created by leading experts in their associated field, based on industry best practices adopting a thought leadership approach, ensuring they meet the exacting needs of their audience.

The Open Group has a proud record of creating and maintaining technical standards and tools that have proven to be invaluable to the Enterprise Architects community, whether they are industry-wide or aligned to specific vertical sectors.

For most of these tools, there is certification available so practitioners can evidence they have the skills required, and recruiters can take the guesswork out of the recruitment process – all backed up by our open badges program.

Using the ArchiMate® Modeling Language in Real-life Examples

The ArchiMate® Specification, a standard of The Open Group, defines an open and independent modeling language for Enterprise Architecture that is supported by different tool vendors and consulting firms. The ArchiMate language enables Enterprise Architects to describe, analyze, and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way.

In this Toolkit espisode, you will see how the TOGAF® content framework (metamodel) can be expressed in ArchiMate modeling language to generate better visual between the various layers. 

Patrick Derde will share a real life example of his experience as lead Architect of the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) where true added value is realized using the ArchiMate Standard.
Marien Krouwel will demonstrate real-life examples of the ArchiMate Standard being applied in an Agile environment. He will show an example of applying several architecture methods and frameworks within the scaled agile environment at PostNL.
Participants will learn:
- how TOGAF and ArchiMate Standards enrich each other
- real-life examples and benefits of the ArchiMate modeling language
- the many ways in which ArchiMate Standard can be leveraged such as in an Agile organization
