About this Course

The ArchiMate® 3.1 Foundation eLearning course is an open standard modelling language for Enterprise Architecture.

After attending the ArchiMate® 3.1 Foundation training, delegates will be able to model a uniform representation of an organisation’s Enterprise Architecture with diagrams that describe, analyse, and visualize the different architecture domains, their relationships, and dependencies in an unambiguous way. Ensuring that stakeholders have a common language of communication to define and understand the concept of architecture change.

ArchiMate® introduces a unique concept for visualising, defining ‘architectural viewpoints,’ that enable enterprise architects to describe different stakeholder interests and concerns. From migration of legacy applications, to consolidation of existing IT infrastructure, ArchiMate® supports cross-domain analysis, direct and indirect impact of change from different architectural viewpoints.

ArchiMate® is designed to support other modeling languages, such as, UML for systems and BPMN for business processes, thereby providing comprehensive and detailed model visualization of your enterprise.
