Guiding Agile Solution Delivery with the ArchiMate Language

Iver Band, Enterprise Architect, Cambia Health Solutions; and Chris McCurdy, IT Architect, Cambia Health Solutions

Solution Architects can develop clear and actionable guidance for Agile development teams using the ArchiMate language. They can rapidly leverage Enterprise Architectures, and specify just the right amount of detail to constrain the solution while leveraging developers' expertise, initiative and creativity.  As solutions are developed, architectural models can be enriched with additional implementation details, enabling Solution Architects to contribute high-quality baseline architectures and reusable building blocks to their enterprise repositories. This presentation will prepare Enterprise and Solution Architects to lead Agile implementation of their architectures and roadmaps.

Participants will learn:

1.  How to use the ArchiMate language to guide development--even if they are the only ones in their organization who know the language!

2.  How to empower Agile development teams to deliver solutions that conform to Enterprise and Solution architectures while giving them the freedom to use their initiative and skills to react quickly to unexpected insights and challenges.

3. How to work with Agile teams to update architectural models so that they accurately reflect production solutions and maximize reuse opportunities.
