BPMN 2.0 is the most comprehensive process modeling standard, with precisely defined notation and an underlying formal meta-model. This paper will present 10 facts, which are defined in the BPMN 2.0 specification, you probably didn’t know.
ArchiMate is a valuable modeling language for developing enterprise architectures but exactly how important is it as part of an Enterprise Architect’s tool box?
TOGAF is largely about identifying and documenting architecture requirements... but what is an Architectural Requirement? Frequently we document requirements, not "architecture" requirements! In this blog I explain what we need to do to make requirements architectural.
