The Enterprise Architecture Modeling Language from The Open Group
iServer provides complete support for the ArchiMate standard, including the full notation, meta-model and viewpoints (templates) as well as a number of resources.
Using ArchiMate in iServer delivers consistent architecture diagrams and improved understanding of a widely supported standard.
Many iServer users use ArchiMate in combination with the TOGAF 9.1 Architecture Development Method.
iServer conforms to the ArchiMate Tool Certification Program established by The Open Group and is on the ArchiMate Tool Certification Register.
iServer has support for the complete ArchiMate 2.1 notation and meta-model, including the motivation and implementation extensions.
A complete set of ArchiMate viewpoints (provided as Visio templates). Each viewpoint provides:
- details of the viewpoint (stakeholders, concerns, purpose)
- meta-model (what concepts are used)
Providing the viewpoints speeds up and increases the accuracy of new diagrams by providing examples and explaining how each viewpoint is used. This serves as a useful guide for new architects, or a handy reminder for more those with more experience.
These visual aids work to help you check the semantic correctness of your ArchiMate diagrams.
This in turn helps new users to learn the ArchiMate standard, whilst increasing the accuracy and ArchiMate alignment of diagrams.
The ArchiSurance case-study from the Open Group is included for quick-reference. This illustrates the use of ArchiMate in the context of the TOGAF framework.
