Need TOGAF ADM Support with ArchiMate?
ArchiMate is a good visual language for modeling EA, but it is not a method which provides steps, techniques for guiding you through the entire EA development process. Although ArchiMate can integrate with TOGAF ADM seamlessly and intrinsically by design, to start an EA project only with pencil and papers would be just like we are doing things in the Stone Age without proper tools.
Even though businesses are aware of the advantages of an EA practice, it has never been an easy task to build an Enterprise Architecture. A problem many organizations face is inability to identify the place to start, and how to get started. The immaturity of Enterprise Architecture results in gaps and hurdles in the early stages that can stop businesses progressing further with the scheme. In 2007, Gartner found that 40% of Enterprise Architecture initiatives would be stopped and a later survey in 2015 indicates that 70% of businesses were looking to either start, or restart an Enterprise Architecture program.
