What is ArchiMate?

Note

This feature is available in the Enterprise Edition.

ArchiMate is an open enterprise architecture modeling language for describing and visualizing enterprise architectures within and across business domains.

Developing enterprise architecture descriptions enables you to base requirements and stakeholder concerns regarding your IT and business systems on formal and uniform models.

ArchiMate is a lightweight, but sufficiently comprehensive language and enables you to define the architecture of your business and IT systems using a service oriented view model and supporting the representation of the architecture over time, for example for transformation and migration planning.

The complete ArchiMate specification can be found here:
