    ArchiMate® is a modeling language for enterprise architecture that is supported by different tool vendors and consulting firms. ArchiMate enables enterprise architects to describe, analyze and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way. ArchiMate offers a common language for describing the construction and operation of business processes, organizational structures, information flows, IT systems, and technical infrastructure. This insight helps stakeholders design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between these business domains.
