Alignment with other Architectural frameworks and Modeling languages ‚Äč

If an organization already has adopted a method, modeling language or framework as internal standard(s) for working with Enterprise Architecture, or has created an architecture reference itself, we will adjust the content of this masterclass EA accordingly.

Some organizations have adopted for example TOGAF or ArchiMate as internal standards as part of working with architecture. However, TOGAF is a global framework and not a method. That is why with the Dragon1 method you complement the TOGAF framework with a practical way of working with Enterprise Architecture.

The ArchiMate modeling language focuses on modeling and not on visualizing Architecture. Dragon1 offers both: an addition to ArchiMate in the form of a visualization language and an optional replacement and extension of the modeling language.

(TOGAF and ArchiMate are brands of the Open Group, Dragon1 is a trademark of Dragon1 Inc., Dragon1 is recognized by the Open Group as a method for Enterprise Architecture.)
