List of organizations known to use Archi

(1/8) > >>

Jean-Baptiste Sarrodie:
Hi,

The goal of this thread is to list as many known use cases as possible so that people new to Archi can see that it can be really used on a day to day basis by an Architect (and not only 1 or 2 days to "test" ArchiMate and then switch to a paid tool).

So if you use Archi for an organization (which should obviously be always the case) we'd appreciate if you could take 2min to briefly describe in which context you use it (your organization, size of your team if any, typical work you to with it...). It could also be interresting to see why to still use Archi or why you've switch to another tool if you no more use it.

In addition, we can also use this thread to list other known usage (for example publication of Reference Architectures...).

This topic is yours.

Regards,

JB

Jean-Baptiste Sarrodie:
So I will start by my own usage.

As former Architect for the french LafargeHolcim division:
Archi is used to document the global IS/IT Landscape, mainly from an infrastructure and application point of view. This is used for impact analysis (together with information shared in a CMDB based on CMDBuild) and as a basis for each architecture change (ie. for project related solution architecture) where deliverables are created through the buitin jasperreport engine (customizable report).

As Enterprise Architect Consultant for Arismore:
Archi is used:

* to document architectures for our customers when they have no EA tooling in place,
* to document architectures for our own, internal, projet,
* by trainees during official ArchiMate trainings
Regards,

JB

Jean-Baptiste Sarrodie:
Another known usage is the official documentation of the European Interoperability Reference Architecture.

This is made clear by:

* The reference to Archi at the end of the official page
* The publication of the HTML export of the beta version of the reference architecture
