Architecture Development Method (ADM)

iServer’s support for TOGAF 9.2 provides a repository to support the Architecture Development Method, the ADM. The iServer Explorer folder structure in the repository is configured to support iterations of the TOGAF ADM, and is aligned to the appropriate phases of the ADM. For each phase, there is a complete set of diagrams and documentation templates, along with supporting reference materials, such as BPMN 2.0 process diagrams, which show the activities to be performed.

TOGAF 9.2 Meta-Model

iServer provides the TOGAF 9.2 meta-model and extensions, all object types and relationship types, and the full set of metadata definitions, including lifecycle dates or statuses allowing you to monitor data against a time horizon. It includes all object types, such as Process Application, Actor, and Capability; as defined in the TOGAF 9.2 Standards Specification. Attributes or meta-data that are captured against each object type, including cost, category, and status, can be added to the meta-model within iServer.

TOGAF 9.2 Notation

While TOGAF 9.2 prescribes a meta-model, a modeling notation is not provided as part of the specification. iServer fills in this gap by providing an Orbus Software developed TOGAF 9.2 modeling notation to describe the object and relationship types mentioned in the TOGAF 9.2 meta-model.

TOGAF 9.2 Deliverable Templates

A complete set of diagram templates (viewpoints) are provided for each phase of the architecture development method, with an attractive notation and examples. These include:

TOGAF 9.2 Diagrams - Microsoft Visio diagram templates, covering each of the architecture domains and each phase of the ADM. Many extension diagram templates such as Architecture Roadmaps are also included.

TOGAF 9.2 Documents - Microsoft Word templates for all TOGAF 9.2 deliverables and documents. For example, an Architecture Principles Catalog, or a Statement of Architecture Work.

TOGAF 9.2 Catalogs & Matrices - tools to generate, edit and export TOGAF list and matrix views.

TOGAF 9.2 Validation Rules Engine

iServer provides a validation rules engine to ensure that diagrams created within the repository are modeled in compliance with TOGAF 9.2. Once a diagram has been completed, users can run the validation rules engine to check for errors in the relationships between notations. The validation rules engine ensures the use of correct alignment and increases the accuracy of diagrams in the repository.

    We are a technology company who develop an IT system that is used within the UK utilities market.

  • Flexible, user-friendly tool which is highly configurable and affordable.

    iServer has met our requirements and expectations. Orbus have provided attentive and timely support throughout our relationship. Have seen many of our suggestions for product improvement added to the development pipeline and then added to the iServer product suite. In the past promises of new versions and features were not meeting promised release dates, but over the last couple of years Orbus has done a much better job of delivering against their roadmaps
