Don't miss this April 30's AeHIN Hour

​​​AeHIN Sponsors New Archimate Foundation Certified Experts

25 participants from​ ​10 countries (Australia, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, Indonesia, Maldives Mongolia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Thailand) completed four grueling weeknight online sessions on ArchiMate®2.1. The sessions were conducted for free by Mr Sunil Kempedowga of CC and C Solutions with participants whose timezones ranged from 6:30pm to 11:30pm.

​"ArchiMate®, an Open Group Standard, is an open and independent modelling language for enterprise architecture that is supported by different tool vendors and consulting firms. ArchiMate provides instruments to enable enterprise architects to describe, analyze and visualize the relationships among business domains in an unambiguous way.", the Open Group website​ ​explains.

"Just as 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, and technical infrastructure. This insight helps stakeholders to design, assess, and communicate the consequences of decisions and changes within and between these business domains."

 

The four weeknight online sessions extensively covered the overview of ArchiMate, Business Layer, Application Layer, Technology Layer, Relationship, Viewpoints, Motivation Extension, Implementation and Migration, and Language Extension Mechanisms of ArchiMate. Upon completion, participants gained the knowledge on the terminology structure and concepts of ArchiMate®2.1.

At the end of the training course, participants were asked to share their opinion on how ArchiMate be of use in eHealth implementation in their country. One trainee stated that “It will provide an infrastructure for considering the method of reconstruction and implementation of any system that, whether, it needs to be refined or construct. It is also going to establish the principle to think not only inside the box as an architect. In my opinion, it emphasizes to be thinkable architect over borders that could have a positive or negative influence. The ArchiMate, soon, will have a vital impact in most of the organizations because of its facilities design but once it is introduced as a helpful, supportive, useful and powerful tool.”

Another participant described the ArchiMate as “a good tool that helps communication among team. In addition, the training provided by AeHIN has already introduced the general idea of ArchiMate and all necessary terms.”

“I think it will help to use this knowledge in our country regarding EA”, stated by a participant from Bangladesh.

According to another trainee, “ArchiMate training is very useful and a good concept and language to apply in country’s health implementation and IT Framework. The concept may also apply to standard and interoperability in HMIS.”

The Asia eHealth Information Network extends its congratulations to the participants for their achievement on the ArchiMate 2 examination and look forward to visualize and realize the Regional Interoperability Architecture using ArchiMate.
