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:
iServer is ArchiMate 3 certified meaning it has successfully met the requirements of the ArchiMate® Tool Certification program, as established by The Open Group. Have peace of mind your modeling initiatives are adhering to industry standards and best practices.
iServer provides complete support for the ArchiMate® 3.0 standard, including the full notation, meta-model and viewpoints. iServer365 allows users to combine ArchiMate modeling with the Architecture Development Method described in TOGAF 9.2. Using iServer365 delivers consistent architecture diagrams and improved understanding of a widely supported standard.
iServer365 provides a preconfigured meta-model. This makes the platform compatible with most aspects of the specifications
iServer365 contains a complete set of standard ArchiMate viewpoints that are preloaded in the repository as Visio templates. These templates can be used across your architecture to create diagrams that can be communicated with the business.
iServer365 provides a validation rules engine to help to ensure that diagrams created within the repository are modeled in compliance with the ArchiMate 3.0 Specification. Once a diagram has been completed, users can run the validation rules engine to check for errors against the ArchiMate 3.0 specification. The validation rules engine ensures the use of correct alignment and increases the accuracy of diagrams for all users of the repository.
The ArchiMate notation can also be used to help model details of IT4IT components.
The Open Group’s ArchiMate Model Exchange File Format is a common standard used for the exchange of ArchiMate architecture models or diagrams between different Enterprise Architecture (EA) tools. This format means architects can export ArchiMate models from other tools or repositories into iServer365, including contents such as ArchiMate objects and all attribute data, relationships between the ArchiMate objects, and ArchiMate Viewpoints and Diagrams.
