Open Workshop, hosted by Marc Lankhorst. 4:45 -5:30


The second part of this session is an open workshop where practitioners can discuss the practical use of ArchiMate in the context of other modeling techniques. On the one hand, this includes more detailed design languages such as UML and BPMN, on the other hand this concerns linking ArchiMate to higher-level methods and techniques such as Balanced Scorecards, SWOT analyses or Customer Journey Maps. We cordially invite practitioners to contribute their own case stories and models, share their experiences and learn from each other.
