Welcome to The Open Group ArchiMate® User Community!
The ArchiMate Specification is an open and independent modeling language for enterprise architecture that is supported by tool vendors, consulting firms, and maintained by The Open Group. The ArchiMate visual modeling notation provides elements to support enterprise, business, solution, and technology architects in describing, analyzing, and visualizing the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way.
The ArchiMate visual modeling notation leverages your Enterprise Architecture practice and helps you describe and understand complex systems. This insight helps stakeholders to design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between different business domains.
If you require a modeling tool that supports the ArchiMate Specification, the ArchiMate Tool Certification Register can be found here.
The general rule for posting within this group: The subject of a post may only be about the ArchiMate language. Generic Enterprise Architecture or even further off-topic posts will not be allowed.

About The ArchiMate User Community
This User Community is open to any practitioner who wants to discussThe Open Group ArchiMate Specification. You are encouraged to share models, examples, and viewpoints by opening a new Issue. This can be to share applied knowledge and better illustrate your question and/or viewpoint.
Self-organized community workgroups may also be created to work on models that will be hosted into the ArchiMate Model Repository. The creation of such a workgroup should first be announced as an Issue. Maintainers will then create the model space and provide access rights as needed.
