ArchiMate® Forum

Objective of Meeting

The aim of the meeting was progression of the work of the ArchiMate Forum.


The ArchiMate Forum’s London member meeting was held on Wednesday May 11, 2011 in conjunction with the London Open Group Conference and Members Meetings. There were four voting members present.

The Forum Chair presented an update on the status of the Forum in the form of the Member Spotlight slides. The current areas with activity are ArchiMate specification development, development of a certification program, reference model development, and collaboration with the Architecture Forum related to harmonizing the Architecture Content Framework.

The Forum agreed that the committee draft of the revision to the ArchiMate specification was now ready to proceed into the formal approvals process. The Forum also agreed that the ArchiMate certification materials should be updated to address the revised ArchiMate specification. This will include updates to the Conformance Requirements for People certification, training courses, and tools.

The Forum approved the formation of a Working Group to create a reference model for the Insurance sector. This activity will be led by Iver Band.

A status report was provided on the joint activity with the Architecture Forum to harmonize the Architecture Content Framework. This is expected to produce results by the end of the year, with suggested improvements for both ArchiMate and TOGAF. It was agreed that this will not impact the next revision to the ArchiMate specification which is due before then.


This summary, the Action Items, Consent Items, Issues List, and the detailed minutes available to members are the outputs of the meeting (available to members only here). Other materials from the meeting are in the London 2011 Materials area of the ArchiMate Forum members' site (available to members only here).

Next Steps

The Forum is scheduled to next meet in a face-to-face meeting in Austin in July 2011. Logistics for the meetings will be available in the ArchiMate Forum calendar.
