ArchiMate 3.0 certified tool
The ArchiMate modelling language is an Open Group standard used for visualizing, analyzing and describing different architecture domains, supporting IT planning and strategy in large enterprises.
ABACUS is also certified for TOGAF 9.1 from the Open Group, allowing users to combine ArchiMate modeling with the TOGAF Architecture Development Method.
The ABACUS enterprise architecture tool is certified for ArchiMate 3.0
Architects can rely on complete conformance with ArchiMate out-of-the-box. A pre-configured metamodel and set of standard viewpoints are provided as standard to all ABACUS users.
Architects can model across the layers and aspects of ArchiMate 3.0. These include Strategy, Business, Application, Technology, Physical and Implementation layers and Passive Structure, Behaviour, Active Structure and Motivation aspects.
Easily extend or adapt ArchiMate and draw from over 100 other
frameworks available in ABACUS.
Using ArchiMate in ABACUS gives you:
A preconfigured metamodel and set of standard viewpoints: which conform with ArchiMate 3.0. Layers available include Strategy, Business, Application, Technology, Physical and Implementation layers and aspects include Passive Structure, Behaviour, Active Structure and Motivation.
ArchiMate 3.0 rules validation engine: this provides high confidence levels that models are compliant with ArchiMate 3.0 across views such as diagrams, matrices, charts and catalogues. With the ABACUS validation engine users can runs automated checks of constraints in the model.
The ability to combine ArchiMate 3.0 with TOGAF 9.1: to create a rich architectural modelling environment. Users can define their own scope and start modelling with as much of the ArchiMate metamodel as they require.
Customizable views and dashboards: architects can access viewpoints covering all of the ArchiMate 3.0 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 swift decision-making.
Change- and impact-analysis: advanced impact analysis and multiple architecture trade-off analysis are available in ABACUS to inform recommendations. These techniques can be used as extensions to the ArchiMate 3.0 Gap and Plateau elements.
Access to powerful analytics: algorithms available in the ABACUS Simulator module can be run against ArchiMate models to calculate metrics and KPIs and undertake what-if, scenario and trade-off analysis.
