Frequently Asked Questions

Course Outline

Introduction and Overview
  • what the ArchiMate standard provides to the business, as well as why it is important to the Enterprise Architecture practitioner and the organization.
  • introduce the key characteristics of the ArchiMate 3.0 standard and offer a brief history of the standard since its conception in 2002.
  • 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.
Certification Program
  • take a look at the Open Group’s ArchiMate 3 Certification Program. 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). look in depth at the certification requirements needed for level 1 and level 2, as well as the examination conditions and pass mark.
Basic Concepts of EA and ArchiMate
  • basic concepts of Enterprise Architecture and the ArchiMate language.
  • 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.
  • discuss the positioning of ArchiMate with other modeling languages, and the basic concepts of modeling.
Language Structure
  • looking at ArchiMate’s design considerations and top-level language structure, moving on to its layers and framework.
  • studies of abstraction, concepts and notations, nesting, use of color and notational cues.
ArchiMate Generic Metamodel
  • take a closer look at the ArchiMate generic metamodel, and then relationships.
  • with the metamodel, cover Behavior and Structure Elements and Specializations.
  • study Motivation Elements, Strategy Elements, and Composite Elements.
ArchiMate Relationships
  • the ArchiMate language define to a core set of generic relationships. Each of these relationships can connect a predefined set of source and target concepts.
  • ArchiMate’s core set of generic relationships, including Structural and dynamic relationships, Grouping, Junction, and Specialization relationships.
Motivation and Strategy Elements
  • look at both the Motivation and Strategy Elements in ArchiMate 3.
  • looking at the Motivation elements, used to model the motivations, or reasons, that guide the design or change of an Enterprise Architecture.
  • Stakeholder, Driver and Assessment elements, Goal, Outcome, Principle, Requirement, and Constraint, Meaning and Value.
  • Strategy Elements, namely Resource, Capability and Course of Action.
The Business Layer
  • explore the elements that make up the business layer in the ArchiMate Framework.
  • spilt elements into the active, behavior and passive aspects. Other elements also fall into the composite category.
The Application Layer
  • explore the elements that make up the application layer in the ArchiMate Framework.
The Technology Layer
  • explore the elements that make up the Technology layer in the ArchiMate Framework.
Physical Elements
  • look at the physical elements, namely the Active Structure elements ‘Equipment’, ‘Facility’, and ‘Distribution network’, the Behavior elements, and the Passive Structure Element (‘Material’).
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?
  • the relationships that the ArchiMate language offers to model the link between business, applications, and technology.
Implementation and Migration Elements
  • look at the Implementation and Migration Elements and their Relationships.
  • define a number of Implementation and Migration elements, and study Relationships and Cross-aspect Dependencies.
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.
  • address Stakeholders and Concerns, Views and Viewpoints, The Viewpoint Mechanism, Defining and Classifying Viewpoints, and Creating the View.
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).
  • customizing the language, without burdening it with a lot of additional material.
  • customization mechanisms in ArchiMate 3.
Cross-layer Dependencies
  • explain how ArchiMate Certified Tools can be used to support EA modelling and analysis with ArchiMate 3.
