EA Cafe 14: ArchiMate 2.0: Modeling Enterprise Architecture aligned with TOGAF

Synopsis

ArchiMate® is the open standard modeling language for Enterprise Architecture, maintained by The Open Group. In this presentation, we explain the basics of the new 2.0 version of the ArchiMate language, including the two extensions (Motivation & Implementation and migration) that are part of the ArchiMate 2.0 standard.

In the presentation, we also show how it fully complements the TOGAF® method for EA development. Based on snapshots from case experiences from different companies, we illustrate the use and advantages of ArchiMate.

Intended audience: Enterprise architects, business architects, IT architects, (IT) managers, CIO’s, as well as everyone interested in TOGAF, ArchiMate and enterprise architecture

Key Takeaways

  • Get a full introduction to the ArchiMate EA modeling language
  • See how ArchiMate is fully aligned to TOGAF
  • Understand snapshot examples of ArchiMate from daily practice

EA Café 13: Cloud Computing will change the way we work with Enterprise Architecture

Dear EA professional,

We would like to invite you for our next Architect Café on November 30th. The following topic is covered: Cloud Computing will change the way we work with Enterprise Architecture.

Cloud Computing is one of the IT trends that has a huge impact on the IT industry. In his lecture Martin van den Berg will discuss the impact of Cloud Computing on Enterprise Architecture. He will answer the following questions:

  • Is there more need for enterprise architecture if you would purchase services from the cloud?
  • Will cloud computing lead to other kind of architectures?
  • Will cloud computing lead to a different way we work with architecture?

Martin van den Berg is Architecture Service Line Manager at Sogeti Nederland B.V. and an expert in the area of Enterprise Architecture. He worked as lead architect in organizations like ABN AMRO, ING, Rabobank and Shell. Martin is one of the founders of DYA (Dynamic Architecture) and author of the books “Dynamic Enterprise Architecture, How to make it work”, “Building an Enterprise Architecture Practice”, “SOA for Profit” and “Seize the Cloud”.

Avertim will be the host of this Architect Café.

The Architect Café will be held in the Avertim offices in Brussels. Doors are open as from 17h30 and the presentations will be held from 18h to 20h00 (with networking event after the presentations). If you would like to register, please click here.

We are looking forward to meeting you in November!

Best regards,

Presentation Cloudsourcing with Architecture – Martin van den Berg

EA Cafe 12: Architecture with tangible business benefits.

A multidisciplinary approach to business architecture. How SD Worx succeeded in transforming a complicated and fragmented application landscape to a coherent and simplified architecture with tangible business benefits.

We will approach the transformation operation from three different perspectives:

  • that of the business manager who is responsible for funding the program and for reaping the benefits
  • that of the human interface designer who developed a suitable user interface architecture to support the business process
  • that of the architect who modeled the AS IS architecture and envisioned the TO BE application landscape

Each role will be filled in with a speaker:

  • Jan Boden is manager of the Central Services and Internal Processes department at SD Worx – KMO. He will speak about the business impact of the transformation operation: business drivers, the business process and the benefits.
  • Johan van Maldeghem is human interface designer with experience in describing business processes and developing highly usable interfaces. He will talk about the initial development of the main business application based on a set of scenarios he derived from a set of interviews with real users.
  • Peter Doomen is enterprise architect at SD Worx. His experience includes modeling complex landscapes and convincing management to take action. He will sketch the context of the transformation operation and talk about the main architecture principles that form the base of the TO BE application landscape.

EA Café 11: An Agile Architecture with Domain Inheritance and Derivations

Dear EA professional,Our next Architect Café on May 26th will cover the following topic: An Agile Architecture with Domain Inheritance and Derivations.

No old wine in new bottles: an agile environment requires an agile architecture and the old concepts (like 3 tier, distributed objects and SOA) are not ready for it. The obvious architecture is a thorough integrated one without the architecture becoming a monolith.

This interesting topic is brought to you by Koen Van Exem, Managing Director at INXIN. He has more than 10 years experience with Agile and Lean Software Development. “Dimensional planning” is his contribution to the Agile & Lean range of ideas.

Koen is also Managing Director of Allors, an open source application (platform) that is most suited for Agile & Lean companies.

The presentation of Koen will be followed by a business case presented by Wald Westerlinck. At DSM he ran a program to change the DSM sourcing from local buying community to a global service buying center, from Business group towards Hub structure.

HP will be the host of this Architect Café.

The Architect Café will be held in the HP offices in Diegem. Doors are open as from 17h30 and the presentations will be held from 18h to 19h30 (with networking event after the presentations). If you would like to register, please click here.
