Real IRM

Leading Enterprise Architecture Value™

The Open Group has released ArchiMate® 2.0, the latest version of the open and independent modeling language for Enterprise Architecture. ArchiMate® 2.0 is now more closely aligned with TOGAF® and enables the creation of fully integrated models of an organization's Enterprise Architecture, the motivation behind it, and the programs, projects and migration paths to implement it. ArchiMate already follows terms defined in the TOGAF® framework, and version 2.0 of the specification enables modeling through the TOGAF® Architecture Development Method (ADM).

ArchiMate 2.0 includes the following features and benefits:

  • Improved business and IT alignment through Enterprise Architecture modeling aligned with the TOGAF® ADM
  • Ability to better support the preparation and management of business change, application rationalization, program and portfolio management and outsourcing scenarios
  • Ability to perform cost analysis and business case calculations
  • A Motivation extension to model stakeholders, drivers for change, business goals, principles and requirements
  • Implementation and Migration extensions to support project portfolio management, gap analysis and transition and migration planning
  • Improved consistency and examples, as well as additional clarification updates from the previous version
