IT Architecture Modelling Using ArchiMate 3

A critical skill that all IS/IT architects must have is the ability to communication architectural ideas in a formal way. At the same time, IS/IT architecting should be focused on capturing ideas, understanding concepts and the relationships between them. The ArchiMate® 3 Specification (published by The Open Group) has been designed to address both these requirements. It is a lightweight language based on UML, with capabilities of describing all layers of architecture, from Enterprise through to Technology. In addition it can be used for motivation modelling and the creation of implementationand migration plans.

This course leads to delegates achieving Certified status in both the ArchiMate® 3 Foundation and ArchiMate® 3 Practitioner. It provides them with the convenience of taking the exam at the end of the course, as well as receiving instruction from experienced trainers who have been actively involved in the development of the language.

Learning Objectives

Understand the latest ArchiMate® 3 specification, so its notation can be used to effectively describe architecture.

  •   Use an enterprise architecting tool to work through a comprehensive architecture example, in order to get a practical insight into how the notation is used.
  •   Prepare for the exam.


Those in the following roles could make full use of this language:

  •   Practicing Architects at all Layers: Business, Applications, Data and Technology/Infrastructure
  •   Business Analysts and Modellers
  •   System designers
  •   Software engineers
  •   Infrastructure engineers

In preparation for attending the course each delegate will be sent an Architecture Primer which should be studied before attending the course. It highlights key parts of the Specification that should be understood, and contains useful advice on how to understand and use ArchiMate Relationships
