  10. 10. Architecture Models • Use models to describe enterprise architectures d l b h k d l d l d d• Models can be checked, visualized, analyzed, managed,  integrated, transformed, interpreted, and sometimes  even executedeven executed • Needed: well founded practical and vendor• Needed: well‐founded, practical, and vendor‐ independent standard for enterprise architecture  modelingg 10
  11. 11. ArchiMate • A language to describe architectures • A graphical notation with formal semanticsg p • A framework that describes the business, application and technology layersapplication, and technology layers – With Relations between the layers E t i f ti ti i l t ti & i ti• Extensions for motivation, implementation & migration • Techniques for visualizations and analyses for different  stakeholders • An open standard maintained by The Open Group 11

Notation • Most concepts have two notations: – IconIcon – Box with icon • Sharp corners = structure • Rounded corners = behavior • Cut‐off corners = motivation • Notation resembles UML and BPMN – to stay close to what architects already know • Relations (arrows etc.) are also mostly taken from existing  languages, with a few exceptions 15

  29. 29. Modeling at the Strategic Levelg g • Stakeholders at the CxO level are not used to formal models • But they do use techniques like: – Balanced Scorecard – Business Model Canvas – SWOT analysesSWOT analyses – Five Forces model – Operating models – Value chain models • These provide a starting point for your architecture effort – Give the motivation for architectural decisions – And architecture provides feedback about feasibility of strategy:  scenarios roadmaps etcscenarios, roadmaps, etc. 29

ArchiMate, UML & BPMN, • ArchiMate connects architectural domains B t d t f i l t ti d t il– But does not focus on implementation details – Broader scope, but less detail than e.g. UML (software), BPMN  (processes)(p ) – No replacement for these, but an ‘umbrella’ on top • Several ArchiMate concepts derived from BPMN and  UML – Easy to link to e.g. UML descriptions of detailed design or  BPMN process modelsBPMN process models • Example: UMLExample: UML 33

  37. 37. CONCLUSIONS AND SOME TIPS…. 37
  38. 38. Architecture Modeling Should be Integrated… g g • With the architecture process TOGAF ADM th– TOGAF ADM or any other • With architecture and  implementation governanceimplementation governance – Validate the models  • With other modeling effortsWith other modeling efforts – Strategy, business models – Process and rule models – Software models – … 38 When using models, work from the perspective of  stakeholders, products and deliverables!

  40. 40. … But I Would Rather Use a Tool… 40
  41. 41. … That Provides Different Views on a Model P2 A2 S2 A2 F1 Repositoryp y 41
  42. 42. Consistent and Integrated Modeling…g g • is a kind of knowledge management h l d• helps to integrate various domains • links vision to realization • enables stakeholder‐specific view generation • supports analyses, e.g. traceability 42 Position ArchiMate as an umbrella language for integrated  high‐level modeling and analyses over various domains
  43. 43. ArchiMate is Useful To... • Bridge the gap between ‘free‐format’ strategy models  and detailed solution architecture modelsand detailed solution architecture models • Enhance communication  M k d l l bl• Make models analyzable • Have a common basis for  more detailed modelingmore detailed modeling 43 Relate your ArchiMate models to your operating model or  business model when communicating to C‐level
  44. 44. ArchiMate is a Start ‐ Not an Endpointp • Open standard is a “safe choice” h k b ll• Think big, start small – There are many possible  concepts and relationsconcepts and relations – Select and learn • Implementing ArchiMate means p g a change in how architects work  – Takes time – Communication – Management support 44 Consider the implementation of ArchiMate as a project…  Include change management aspects
