What is ArchiMate? A Quick Overview

The ArchiMate modeling language is an ideal tool for enterprise architects, allowing them to create clear diagrams of complex infrastructures. These enterprise models can make it far easier for managers to make informed decisions, but how exactly does ArchiMate work? Good e-Learning takes a look

Enterprise architects are trained to understand business and IT infrastructures, but what about managers and other key decision makers? If they lack technical backgrounds, they may struggle to make the most informed decisions for positive organizational change.

The ArchiMate modeling language solves this problem by presenting infrastructures as simple enterprise models, providing non-technically minded audiences with the perspective of enterprise architecture without requiring the training. This makes ArchiMate an excellent tool for enterprise architects, particularly those with TOGAF certifications (as both ArchiMate and TOGAF are maintained by The Open Group).
