Tools to support Architecture Continuum Development

To support the Architecture Continuum Development Enterprise Architects offers the following tools:

  • AAM/Architecture Modeling Full 
Modeling and Managing all Arcitecture components in Archimate 3.0+
  • DtA/Design to Architecture
Design to Architecture: based on the different Transition Support tool designs it is possible to retrieve the designs in Archimate models to check the results of the developments against the PSA or generate the PEA

Tools to support Transition

To support the Transition Enterprise Architects offers the following solutions and tools:

  • AFR/Function Requirement    
Defining the PROSA requirements for each Knowledge Function of the solution
  • APR/PROSA Modeling  
Defining the details of Principles, Requirements, design Objectives, Standards & Agreements for the solution
