With the recent announcement of ArchiMate® 3, The Open Group announced a formal certification program for ArchiMate® 3. This means Enterprise Architects can attend ArchiMate® 3 training, and achieve ArchiMate® 3 Certification by sitting and passing a standardised examination that has been defined by The Open Group. The ArchiMate® Certification process is comparable to the TOGAF® Certification process.
The Open Group assesses and certifies training organisations that deliver ArchiMate® 3 training, to ensure students receive internationally-consistent knowledge acquisition and training experience.
In conjunction with the official release of ArchiMate®3 certification program by Open Group, ATD Solution | ATD Learning are pleased to announce that we are now the first and only authorized commercial licensee for the Open Group’s ArchiMate® 3 training and certification provider across Asia Pacific and its solely owned entities in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Hong Kong.

What is ArchiMate® 3?
ArchiMate is a modelling technique (“language”) for describing enterprise architectures. It presents a clear set of concepts within and relationships between architecture domains, and offers a simple and uniform structure for describing the contents of these domains. Just like an architectural drawing in classical building architecture describes the various aspects of the construction and use of a building,
ArchiMate offers a common language for describing the construction and operation of:
- Business processes
- Organizational structures
- Information flows
- IT systems
- Technical infrastructure.
This insight helps stakeholders to design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between these business domains.
Models have played an important role in business for a long time. Process models, information- and data models, application landscapes, strategic models, operational models. Organizations try to connect their models, to gain insight in the way the enterprise works from many different perspectives. Typically, models become more high-level, focusing on the essence of the organization. These developments have led to the development of the ArchiMate language, which allows high-level modeling within a domain, but allows modeling the relations between domains.
