ABACUS 4.0 is TOGAF 9 Certified
May 24, 2012
Avolution, the market leader in metrics-based analysis of architectures, today announced that the latest release of its enterprise modelling tool, ABACUS, has been certified to support The Open Group's Architecture Framework (TOGAF) Version 9 (including version 9.1).
ABACUS 4.0 and later releases are certified to support TOGAF 9 (including version 9.1)
TOGAF is a framework for the design, planning, implementation and governance of an enterprise architecture, enabling modeling and analysis of Business, Application, Data and Technology levels of an enterprise. Extending Avolution’s existing certification to TOGAF 8 (including version 8.1), ABACUS 4.0’s support of the new TOGAF 9 and 9.1 standards, and formal certification, is based on ‘out-of-the-box’ functionality conformance with 100% of the Architecture Content Framework requirements, including all the entities, relationships, attributes, artifacts/views and deliverables of TOGAF 9 and 9.1.
“Through its certification from The Open Group, Avolution can provide customers with assurance that ABACUS conforms to industry best-practice open standards” said Avolution's Dr Tim O'Neill. “This means that organisations needing to base their Enterprise or Solution Architectures on TOGAF can use ABACUS, as well as Avolution's training, professional services and partners.
"Avolution has a long history of standards participation, and we’re proud to have contributed to the evolving TOGAF standard, which has become the most popular industry standard on architecture."
In addition to TOGAF, ABACUS also supports a wide range of other frameworks and notations, including; ArchiMate, DoDAF, MoDAF, FEAF, PEAF, BPMN and UML. Practitioners can create or customize metamodels easily using 'right-clicks' or ‘drag-and-drops’ in the ABACUS user interface.
