The Open Group Conference - San Diego 2011

Enterprise Architecture with TOGAF® and ArchiMate®

Henry Franken, MSc. PhD.
Henry Franken, BiZZdesign, Netherlands; and Chair, ArchiMate® Forum

A complete approach to enterprise architecture (EA) requires:

  1. a framework describing architectural viewpoints;
  2. a language for architectural descriptions;
  3. a method for constructing architectures.

The Open Group's TOGAF® 9 standard is the leading method for EA development, including a process, techniques and best practices. The Open Group's ArchiMate standard is the leading language for integrated EA modelling, describing the business, application and technology layers and their relationships.

Based on examples from real-life cases, we show how ArchiMate® makes TOGAF® actionable:

  • how TOGAF® and ArchiMate together offer a comprehensive and complete approach to EA;
  • that ArchiMate facilitates modeling the deliverables prescribed by TOGAF®;
  • ArchiMate core and its extensions to cover all the aspects that TOGAF® addresses.

Delegates will learn from this session:

  • TOGAF® 9 in a nutshell
  • ArchiMate and its extensions in a nutshell
  • How to deliver EA using TOGAF® and ArchiMate
