Archimate for Dummies

Jan Mentz

ArchiMate is The Open Group's open and independent modelling language for enterprise architecture. It 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. The language provides support for enterprise architects through incorporating service-oriented concepts and describing, analysing and visualising the relationships among business, application and infrastructure domains in an unambiguous way.
