ArchiMate® Day

Objective of Meeting

The objective of the meeting was to provide an all-day conference track dedicated to the ArchiMate modeling language.


The Open Group Summit Amsterdam featured an all-day track on the ArchiMate modeling language, followed by an ArchiMate Users Group meeting. The meeting attendees included the core developers of the ArchiMate language, users, and tool developers.

The sessions included tutorials, a panel session on the past, present, and future of the language, and case studies. Henry Franken presented a tutorial showing how the ArchiMate modeling language and the TOGAF standard can be used together. Alan Burnett presented on how the ArchiMate language can be extended to support roadmapping. The tutorials were followed by an interactive panel discussion, which discussed a wide range of topics ranging from how to best use the language, to how the language metamodel should be revised. This was then followed by three case studies demonstrating uses of the ArchiMate Language. Geert Van Grootel and Patrick Derde presented on pattern-driven meta data management. Walter Zondervan presented on an ArchiMate Reference Architecture for Governance, based on BiSL. Adina Aldea presented on strategy alignment using the ArchiMate language. As part of the work, she invited participation in a survey about the pains and gains of strategic alignment. The survey links are as follows:
