ArchiMate with Enterprise Architect KickStart Model Development Workshop - N Days

CRaG Systems ArchiMate with Enterprise Architect KickStart Model Development Workshops provide focused, intensive workshops that get your project moving immediately. KickStart Hands-On Model Development teaches the concepts of the ArchiMate language by applying the methods directly to your system architecture using Sparx Systems' Enterprise Architect modelling tool, with valuable and practical benefits to your team. ArchiMate modelling methods are learned and retained better by the students since the example used is directly relevant to your organisation's business and system architecture and to the immediate project with no long theory classes before applying the methods.

The consultant shows the team how to develop whichever views of enterprise architecture are required including how to organise the views into an interconnected and cohesive whole. The model is constructed using industry best practice for each part of the model and the consultant teaches the necessary detail of the ArchiMate syntax as the model is developed. Students work either in teams or separately to develop further the models started by the consultant under his or her guidance. Sparx Enterprise Architect and the ArchiMate 2.1 and/or 3.0 notations are used throughout. The models produced are sufficiently detailed to allow the students subsequently to complete them unaided.

Delegates will learn some or all of the following ArchiMate modelling skills as required:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the ArchiMate notation and framework
  • To understand the core ArchiMate concepts of Active, Passive, Structural, Behavioural, Service, Interface and Collaborative Elements
  • How to model Passive Structure, Active Structure and Behavioral Elements in the Business Layer
  • How to model Passive Structure, Active Structure and Behavioral Elements in the Application Layer
  • How to model Passive Structure, Active Structure and Behavioral Elements in the Technology Layer
  • How to use the core set of ArchiMate relationships to connect the various elements both within and between architectural layers
  • How to model the Motivation concepts of ArchiMate including Goals, Principles and Requirements
  • How to organise the model to make elements re-useable across the business and system architectures taking into account cross-layer dependencies
  • How to model Architectural Views and Viewpoints appropriately for different Stakeholders
  • How the ArchiMate layers map to the three main architectures in the TOGAF ADM
  • How to model Implementation and Migration of Architectures in the ArchiMate syntax to support the late ADM phases
Delegates will learn some or all of the following Sparx Enterprise Architect skills as required:
  • The basics and the necessary detail of the use of Enterprise Architect
  • How to generate and maintain documents from the different parts of the model
  • How to keep all the models of business and system architecture change-managed and traceable as part of an enterprise architecture development process
  • How to integrate external documents with the enterprise architecure model
  • How to use the project management capabilities available within Enterprise Architect
  • How to use the tool in a multi-user environment integrated with a version control system
