  27. 27. The ArchiMate and TOGAF • The evolution of the ArchiMate language is closely linked to the development of the TOGAF standard. • As a consequence, the ArchiMate standard does not provide its own set of defined terms, but rather follows those provided by the TOGAF standard.
  28. 28. The Role of ArchiMate as an EA Language • The ArchiMate modeling language has been developed to provide a uniform representation for diagrams that describe Enterprise Architectures. • It offers an integrated architectural approach that describes and visualizes the different architecture domains and their underlying relations and dependencies.
  29. 29. The ArchiMate Language is Lightweight and Scalable • The ArchiMate language is lightweight and scalable in several respects: – Its architecture framework is simple and yet comprehensive enough to provide a good structuring mechanism. – It incorporates the concepts of the “service orientation” paradigm. – It represents enterprise architectures as they change over time.
  30. 30. The ArchiMate and TOGAF Specification • The TOGAF standard is a method and framework • It includes the following domains: – Business Architecture – Information Systems Architectures  Data  Applications – Technology Architecture • The ArchiMate specification is a language • It includes the following layers: – Business – Application – Technology Note: In the ArchiMate language, the data elements are embodied in the appropriate layers.
