ArchiMate for Architects Training

ArchiMate is an Open Group standard, widely supported by drawing and modelling tools. ArchiMate is increasing in popularity and use, and should be in the toolkit of any architect who deals with strategy, business, or applications.

ArchiMate is a powerful, expressive notation for modelling and communicating architectural ideas. It helps architects develop, document, and collaborate with both architects and non-architects.

ArchiMate's super-power is its ability to represent complimentary aspects of an architecture, such as business and application concerns, in one diagram.
