One of the key roles of an enterprise architect is to develop and communicate architectures that define and address business and IT system concerns held by stakeholders within an organization. ArchiMate is The Open Group’s independent modeling language. It carries a set of default icons to describe, analyze, visualize and communicate various elements of enterprise architectures. It provides a uniform, structured and diagrammatic representation of the underlying relationship and dependencies between different architectural domains with specific viewpoints in order to make them clear to stakeholders.

This ArchiMate 3 Practitioner (level 1 and 2) course is a fully-accredited online training course designed by Enterprise Architecture (EA) experts to help professionals gain an in-depth understanding of this comprehensive modeling language and its practical applications, as well as helping them to pass the ArchiMate Foundation and Practitioner examinations.

Accredited by The Open Group, this ArchiMate 3 Practitioner (level 1 and 2) online training course provides professionals with a comprehensive understanding of the modeling language. It covers the core concepts and terminology of the notation, as well as its structure, implementation, customization and stakeholder presentation techniques. The course helps individuals understand how this modeling language can be applied in practical scenarios across three key layers: Business, Application and Technology.  

ArchiMate is a time-tested, vendor-independent, lean and simple modeling language that provides precision on the core concepts of enterprise architecture modeling. It does not prescribe how things work, but easily combines with existing EA practices like TOGAF. Training and qualifying in ArchiMate allows professionals to efficiently capture and address stakeholder concerns, identify and refine requirements, design EA models and create models for stakeholders to show how their concerns are being addressed.
