ArchiMate Applied is designed to provide students with the ability to apply The Open Group ArchiMate modeling language and prepare for the exams required to achieve ArchiMate Certified (Level 2). Students will gain knowledge of the notation, terminology, structure, and concepts of the ArchiMate modeling language. Starting with an overview of enterprise architecture, students will learn ArchiMate language and modeling principles. Students will apply the concepts in the three layers, beginning with the Business layer, continuing with the Application layer and concluding with the Technology layer. Students will understand how to apply the correct relationships between concepts and layers. Students will review the standard architecture viewpoints defined in ArchiMate. The two extensions for Motivation modeling and Implementation & Migration planning will also be covered. The course will conclude with a discussion of ArchiMate tools, along with a discussion of the relationship of ArchiMate models to other languages and frameworks, such as UML® , BPMN™, and TOGAF® .
