Recently, the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) published version 8.0 of its financial industry reference architecture. This provides a comprehensive model of the business capabilities, business scenarios, service domains and business objects used in banking and other financial services.
At The Open Group event in Amsterdam on November 5, 2019, the latest version of the ArchiMate® modeling language for Enterprise Architecture was released. Version 3.1 is an update to the previous major version 3.0 (released in 2016). Despite being ‘just’ a minor version update, it holds a number of useful additions and improvements for Enterprise Architecture practitioners.
This blog, the third in a series with Marc Lankhorst, Managing Consultant for BiZZdesign, looks at how architecture in general and the ArchiMate language in particular can add a lot of value to agile approaches.

This is a real case application of the ArchiMate standard in the European Interoperability Reference Architecture (EIRA) modelling.
Lourens Riemens, an Enterprise Architect with the Netherlands Tax & Customs Administration, will be speaking at The Open Group Amsterdam event about how the agency has used ArchiMate®, an Open Group standard, for greater consistency, overview and insight. We spoke to him in advance of the conference to get a preview.
ArchiMate® Version 3.0: Technical Corrigendum No. 1 (TC1) has been published. This is a set of corrections to the ArchiMate 3.0 Specification. It is available as a free download from The Open Group website, and an updated version of the full specification including TC1 has been published, known as the ArchiMate 3.0.1 Specification. The second ArchiMate Day will be held at The Open Group Amsterdam event on Wednesday, October 25th.
The ArchiMate language should address only what is necessary to model architecture and leave the other areas to appropriate modeling languages, such as BPMN™ for business process models and UML® for software models. Each profession has its own optimal terminology, languages, and tools. The ArchiMate language should not challenge languages designed for disciplines beyond architecture. It is better to ensure traceability between different model types to maintain consistency. If there is a desire for a modeling language for other areas, do not just add them to the ArchiMate language but make a related new language.
With the release of the ArchiMate 3.0 Specification in 2016, we now have a complete enterprise description language that has been adopted by architects worldwide in a wide range of organizations. It is now time for the ArchiMate Forum to reach out to users and better understand how the language is being used and how it should evolve. The ArchiMate modeling language supports architects in creating straightforward and understandable diagrams. Use of the ArchiMate notation helps architects understand each other’s architectures.
