Using an enterprise architecture tool correctly has many important benefits:
- Several architects can work on the same model at the same time (with a repository).
- You can standardize on the enterprise architecture language (Archimate 3 in this case).
- You can have multiple viewpoints on a single model.
- There is a single source of truth for your architectural components.
- The model is searchable, giving a richer enterprise architecture experience.
- The product has the Archimate 3 metamodel built in, which ensures you comply to standard modeling techniques.
- Standard viewpoints are built in, giving quick and easy visibility to focal points of your model.
- Archi is built by the Open Group, so it’s intrinsically aligned to TOGAF and AAF.
