Using ArchiMate in ABACUS Gives You:
A set of standard ArchiMate viewpoints, and a preconfigured metamodel. Layers available include Strategy, Business, Application, Technology, Physical and Implementation layers and aspects include Passive Structure, Behavior, Active Structure and Motivation
ArchiMate rules validation engine: this provides high confidence levels that models are compliant with ArchiMate across views such as diagrams, matrices, charts and catalogs. With the validation engine in ABACUS, users can runs automated checks of constraints in the model.
The ability to combine ArchiMate with TOGAF: to create a rich architectural modeling environment. Users can define their own scope and start modeling with as much of the ArchiMate metamodel as they require.
Customizable ArchiMate Diagrams and Dashboards: architects can use viewpoints covering all of the ArchiMate layers and aspects, and tailor them according to their preferences. Automatic diagram creation and an intuitive dynamic connector available in ABACUS also streamline view creation.
Global collaboration across departments: geographically distributed teams can model efficiently and effectively on premise or in the cloud. Architects can produce deliverables quickly to support decision-making.
Change and impact analysis: quick visual impact analysis and scenario analysis are available in ABACUS to inform recommendations. These techniques can be used as extensions to the ArchiMate Gap and Plateau elements.
Automate calculations: set up counts and calculations to run against your ArchiMate models and display metrics in customizable dashboards.
