ArchiMate® is an open standard enterprise architecture language developed by the Open Groupô. The MDG technology for ArchiMate® implements this language within Enterprise Architect. ArchiMate® is used to describe the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems and technical infrastructure.
ArchiMate® and Enterprise Architect
Enterprise Architect enables you to rapidly develop ArchiMate® diagrams, helping to describe, analyze and visualize the relationships among business domains. This in turn allows stakeholders to asses and communicate the impact of any decisions or changes within and between each domain.
ArchiMate® can be used in conjunction with other methods that guide the architecture process, such as TOGAF. Enterprise Architect allows you to examine multiple viewpoints in order to address stakeholder concerns, make comparisons and to establish relationships.
