  • Module 1: Introduction and Overview

    • In this opening module we look at what the ArchiMate standard provides to the business, as well as why it is important to the Enterprise Architecture practitioner and the organization.

      We introduce the key characteristics of the ArchiMate 3.0 standard and offer a brief history of the standard since its conception in 2002.

      Finally, we look at the custodians of the ArchiMate standard, The Open Group, and how the ArchiMate standard increasingly harmonizes with other standards of The Open Group, notably the TOGAF standard.

  • Module 2: Certification Program

    • In this module we take a look at the Open Group’s ArchiMate 3 Certification Program. We learn that it offers certification in three key areas: people, products and training courses.

      The certification for people program uses two levels: Foundation (level 1) and Practitioner (level 2). We look in depth at the certification requirements needed for level 1 and level 2, as well as the examination conditions and pass mark.

  • Module 3: Basic Concepts of EA and ArchiMate

    • This module introduces the basic concepts of Enterprise Architecture and the ArchiMate language.

      We will be looking at the purpose and benefits of Enterprise Architecture, the ArchiMate standard’s relationship with Enterprise Architecture, and the architectural domains covered by ArchiMate and how they map to the TOGAF standard.

      We also discuss the positioning of ArchiMate with other modeling languages, and the basic concepts of modeling.

  • Module 4: Language Structure

    • In Module Four, "Language Structure", we begin by looking at ArchiMate’s design considerations and top-level language structure, moving on to its layers and framework.

      We complete the topic with studies of abstraction, concepts and notations, nesting, use of color and notational cues.

  • Module 5: ArchiMate Generic Metamodel

    • In this module we will take a closer look at the ArchiMate generic metamodel, and then turn our attention to relationships. When dealing with the metamodel, we will cover Behavior and Structure Elements and Specializations.

      We will also study Motivation Elements, Strategy Elements, and Composite Elements.

  • Module 6: ArchiMate Relationships

    • In addition to the generic elements outlined in Module five, the ArchiMate language also defines a core set of generic relationships. Each of these relationships can connect a predefined set of source and target concepts.

      This module covers ArchiMate’s core set of generic relationships, including Structural and dynamic relationships, Grouping, Junction, and Specialization relationships.

  • Module 7: Motivation and Strategy Elements

    • In module seven we look at both the Motivation and Strategy Elements in ArchiMate 3.

      We will start by looking at the Motivation elements, which are used to model the motivations, or reasons, that guide the design or change of an Enterprise Architecture.

      We will begin with the Stakeholder, Driver and Assessment elements, followed by Goal, Outcome, Principle, Requirement, and Constraint, before concluding our study of the Motivation Elements with Meaning and Value.

      We will then turn our attention to the Strategy Elements, namely Resource, Capability and Course of Action.

  • Module 8: The Business Layer

    • In this module we will explore the elements that make up the business layer in the ArchiMate Framework. The elements can be spilt into the active, behavior and passive aspects. Other elements also fall into the composite category.

  • Module 9: The Application Layer

    • In this module will explore the elements that make up the application layer in the ArchiMate Framework.

  • Module 10: The Technology Layer

    • In module 10 we will explore the elements that make up the Technology layer in the ArchiMate Framework.

  • Module 11: Physical Elements

    • In module 11 we look at the physical elements, namely the Active Structure elements ‘Equipment’, ‘Facility’, and ‘Distribution network’, the Behavior elements, and the Passive Structure Element (‘Material’).

  • Module 12: Cross-layer Dependencies

    • The previous modules have presented the concepts to model the Business, Application, and Technology Layers of an enterprise. However, a central issue in Enterprise Architecture is business/IT alignment: how can these layers be matched?

      This module describes the relationships that the ArchiMate language offers to model the link between business, applications, and technology.

  • Module 13: Implementation and Migration Elements

    • In this module we look at the Implementation and Migration Elements and their Relationships.

      We define a number of Implementation and Migration elements, and study Relationships and Cross-aspect Dependencies.

  • Module 14: Stakeholders, Views and Viewpoints

    • The ArchiMate language provides a flexible approach in which architects and other stakeholders can use their own views on the Enterprise Architecture. In this approach, views are specified by viewpoints.

      Viewpoints define abstractions on the set of models representing the Enterprise Architecture, each aimed at a particular type of stakeholder and addressing a particular set of concerns.

      Viewpoints can be used to view certain aspects in isolation, and to relate two or more aspects. In this module we will address Stakeholders and Concerns, Views and Viewpoints, The Viewpoint Mechanism, Defining and Classifying Viewpoints, and Creating the View.

  • Module 15: Language Customization

    • The ArchiMate language contains the basic elements and relationships that serve general EA modeling purposes only.

      However, the language should also be able to support other, more specific, purposes, such as types of model analysis, the communication of architectures, and those of a certain domain (for example, the financial sector).

      We therefore need a means of customizing the language, without burdening it with a lot of additional material. This module is therefore devoted to the customization mechanisms in ArchiMate 3.

  • Module 16: Cross-layer Dependencies

    • This module will help to briefly explain how ArchiMate Certified Tools can be used to support EA modelling and analysis with ArchiMate 3.
