ArchiMate® 3 Training ONLINE


ArchiMate® 3 is an open and independent graphical modelling language for Enterprise Architecture. It is an international, vendor-independent standard of The Open Group, liberating you from the lock-in of vendor-specific tools and frameworks. The success rate of your enterprise architecture effort is dramatically increased when the use of ArchiMate® 3 is correctly and efficiently addressed within your organisation, and we will provide you the case studies to prove this.


Developed by: The Open Group

Duration: 2 days

Format: Instructor-based with exercises


Why ArchiMate® 3?

Is it not merely another modelling language?

  • The benchmark in EA language and modelling
  • No more ‘fuzzy EA’
  • Lean and Simple
  • Compliments TOGAF
  • Aligns with UML and BPN
  • Tried and tested
  • Consulting and software support widely available

The ArchiMate® 3 Specification provides instruments to enable Enterprise Architects to describe, analyze, and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way.

Just as an architectural drawing in classical building architecture describes the various aspects of the construction and use of a building, the ArchiMate® 3 Specification defines a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems, and technical infrastructure. This insight helps stakeholders to design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between these business domains.

Course Outcome

At the end of the training, delegates will:

  • Have a solid ArchiMate® 3 background
  • Have knowledge and experience with the ArchiMate® 3 language for modelling and architecture description
  • Have knowledge and experience with the ArchiMate® 3 language and techniques for visualising architectures
Training Material

Prior to the course

Students will be given a Dropbox link, prior to the training, with access to download the following training material:

  • Examples
