A thorough comparison of the ArchiMate 2.0 metamodel with the Content Metamodel
from the TOGAF 9.1 Architecture Content Framework reveals that these two Open
Group standards are highly compatible. The ArchiMate 2.0 visual modeling language
is therefore well suited for architecture initiatives guided by the TOGAF 9.1 standard,
and this White Paper provides both theoretical preparation and practical guidance for
users of the ArchiMate language working on such initiatives.
This work supports The Open Group vision of Boundaryless Information Flow by
further enabling the combined use of the TOGAF standard and the ArchiMate
modeling language for consistent representation of architectural information across
diverse organizations, systems, and initiatives.
