View the range of model patterns and example diagrams in our ArchiMate Diagram Gallery.

Every Viewpoint Covered

Make the best use of the clarity, insight and focus offered by the ArchiMate language. Enterprise Architect enables accurate, reliable modeling of the 23 example viewpoints detailed in the ArchiMate 3 specification from The Open Group®.

Enterprise Architect version 16 is certified by The Open Group® for ArchiMate 3.1.

Enact Governance

Implement governance with centralized architecture frameworks, business rules, strategies, regulations, guidelines, processes and requirements within your shared model.

Conduct formal reviews and approvals, record, review, and monitor technical debt at the corporate level. Create Document Artifacts in Enterprise Architect and connect corporate governance to subsequent repository artifacts.

View the Enterprise as a Whole

Enterprise Architect supports modeling from strategy and requirements through to systems design and deployment. With a combined suite of modeling capabilities, the enterprise can be viewed and analyzed as a whole.

Powerful impact analysis tools help pinpoint which systems are affected by a process change and vice versa. Team members and stakeholders can be consulted and notified as changes affect them, ensuring they are informed and connected to the final solution.

Connect and trace a diverse range of connections across current and future state architectures - from requirements, stakeholders, motivations and goals - all the way to regulatory compliance.

  • Traceability window: provides detailed information on relationships and dependencies.
  • Gap Analysis Matrix: Analyze model artifacts and identify potential gaps between solutions.
  • Cross-Layer Relationships and Traceability diagrams: Elements are not restricted by diagram type and can be used on multiple diagrams. Create a diagram of related elements to depict any level of granularity.

Custom Views and Diagrams

Define your own view and Custom Diagrams with complete access to Enterprise Architect's modeling toolset. Model beyond the confines of any one language or framework. Adapt your architecture modeling approach to the task at hand.
