As ArchiMate is constantly being changed and improved by some of the world’s leading practitioners so as to reflect industry best practice, providing excellent background knowledge for anyone wishing to become an enterprise architect.

ArchiMate offers a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems and technical infrastructure. This provides the stakeholders with guidance to design, assess and communicate the consequences of any decisions and changes within the business domains.

The language consists of 4 aspects:

  • active structure
  • behavior
  • passive structure
  • motivation

as well as 6 layers:

  • strategy
  • business
  • application
  • technology
  • physical
  • implementation & migration

It can be integrated with the TOGAF ® ADM and IT4IT standards, both also provided by The Open Group.

The role of ArchiMate is to provide a graphical language for the representation of an organization’s enterprise architecture over time, including the motivation for it, and the programs, projects and migration paths to implement it.
