About ArchiMate Tool Certification

The Open Group Architecture Tool Certification Program includes certification for tools supporting the ArchiMate® Specification, an Open Group Standard. The certification process for tools supporting the ArchiMate Specification assesses whether the tool implements the ArchiMate language correctly.

The Program is based on two documents:

  • Certification Policy
  • Conformance Requirements

Certification Register

Please note that the ArchiMate 3 Tool certification program will lauch shortly. Tools suppliers with ArchiMate 2 certified tools will be able to have their tools certified against the ArchiMate 3.0 requirements once the new program is available. For the moment ArchiMate 2 Tool certification remains the current version.
