A critical skill that all IS/IT architects must have is the ability to communication architectural ideas in a formal way. At the same time, IS/IT architecting should be focused on capturing ideas, understanding concepts and the relationships between them. The ArchiMate® 2.1 Specification (published by The Open Group) has been designed to address both these requirements. It is a lightweight language based on UML, with capabilities of describing all layers of architecture, from Enterprise through to Technology.
