Welcome to our blog. This is an archived post, most of our knowledge and advice remain valid but some material or links may be outdated. Click here to see our most recent blog posts. 

Over the last few weeks we have posted a series of articles about the challenges at BriteLite and the way Brenda the Architect has helped solve them using architecture practices in general, and ArchiMate in particular. Of cbrenda_cartoon_blij.pngourse, the case is a work of fiction and names of characters, businesses, places and events are either the products of the author’s imagination or used in a fictitious manner. Any resemblance to actual persons or events is, of course, entirely coincidental. 

We have taken great care to paint a picture of what an architecture project could look like in practice, based on our experience in various organizations in both Europe and North America. We have worked with various organizations in many different branches and aspects of these projects have made their way into this blog series. 

Learning ArchiMate is not very difficult. The basic structure and principles of the language are fairly straight forward. As always, though, the proof of the pudding is in the eating: only by actually applying ArchiMate can we really learn how to use it. With this blog series we hoped give novice modelers some guidance in how to get started. Also, we hope to have inspired more experienced modelers to try new things and to share their stories. Actual case studies – of successful projects or complete failures – are very useful for the modeling community at large.  

We hope that you enjoyed reading about Brenda and her team. You may want to “get your own Brenda” to give your architecture initiative a boost!  

Happy modeling!
