In this talk we give a short overview of the state-of-the-art study done within the ArchiMate project. The purpose of this study is to give an overview of the state-of-the-art in the fields of (1) architectural research and (2) enterprise modeling tools. In the first overview, we concentrate on known frameworks, techniques, and methodologies for architecture use and design. In the second overview, we discuss modeling tools; their underlying concepts, meta-models, and semantics. In our study we look at both the industry and the academic world.
In this talk we concentrate on enterprise modeling techniques and tools. Our purpose is to give an introduction to enterprise modeling and a short survey of modeling tools.
