Next Architect's Toolkit Episode

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.

The Open Group builds compelling event programs featuring speakers who provide a wide range of expertise and experience, to give our attendees access to the best thought leadership in the industry. The Open Group events offer exposure for speakers’ ideas, expertise, and organizations to high-placed decision makers within influential organizations worldwide.

The Presentations Review Team favors end-user perspectives and presenters, and vendor-neutral educational presentations that focus on the real-life applications and case studies. Front-line implementers and end-users are given preference in the speaker selection process. The session detail is a critical factor in determining whether your presentation proposal is accepted so spend some time outlining what you plan to cover.

Vendors are encouraged to recruit clients and partners who are front-line implementers or end-users as presenters or co-presenters.

The Open Group is a vendor-neutral and technology-neutral consortium. To respect this neutrality, your presentation should not contain any marketing pitch for products or services.
