* Required Fields



This book is the official ArchiMate 2.1 Specification. It is a maintenance update to the ArchiMate 2.0 Specification, addressing comments raised since the introduction of Version 2.0 in 2012. The ArchiMate 2.1 Specification supports modeling throughout the TOGAF® Architecture Development Method (ADM).

The intended audience is threefold:

  • Enterprise Architecture practitioners, such as architects (e.g., application, information, process, infrastructure, and, obviously, enterprise architects), senior and operational management, project leaders, and anyone committed to work within the reference framework defined by the Enterprise Architecture
  • Those who intend to implement the ArchiMate language in a software tool; they will find a complete and detailed description of the language in this book
  • The academic community, on which we rely for amending and improving the language based on state-of-the-art research results in the architecture field
