On October 25, 2017 from 14:00-17:00, there will be at the open (no need to register for the conference) inaugural ArchiMate User Group Meeting hosted by The Open Group. I plan to attend this meeting, so if you want to meet, be there. Before and afterwards I will be at approximately the same location, but not at the TOG Event (which runs for four days), so there are more opportunities to make appointments.

Now that Edition III of the book is done, there is finally some time for some old-fashioned ArchiMate fun. So, as a variation on the theme “what is wrong with this picture“, I would like to invite you to a quiz (of which I plan to offer more questions in the future). I will ask a simple question: given a situation, how do you model this in ArchiMate 3? Continue reading
Just a small note. Today, I approved the proof of the Mastering ArchiMate III book from Ingram. This means that as of now the book is in production and can be ordered. In the coming weeks it will appear for sale at several online outlets, such as Amazon and Book Depository. Volume sales are available as of now as well.
Actually, they were sent last Friday already, but I forgot to mention it here too. Discounts for eligible users for Mastering Archimate Edition III have been sent. Note: except for a few special larger license deals.
If you paid for Mastering ArchiMate Edition II Full PDF before June 14, 2016, you should have received instructions how to get Edition III at a 50% discount. If you haven’t, contact me.
The discount period is time limited and runs to September 8.
The book is now available, but the home page for it is not ready yet. However, those eligible for a free upgrade are currently receiving the download link in their mailboxes.
I have disabled the sale of the Mastering ArchiMate II PDF (and the Bundle), while I update the site and the sales system for Mastering ArchiMate III and send a free update to those eligible.
Note, there has been some confusion about if you have to do something to get the free or discounted Mastering ArchiMate III PDF. The answer is no. The mailing earlier this week said that if you had bought not paying through the website (but paying me directly, e.g. to buy a physical/PDF bundle) you had to, but I think I can solve that too. This means that everyone who has ever paid for Mastering ArchiMate will automatically get what he or she is entitled to. It will just take a bit of time, for which I hope you can have some understanding.
Well, I can finally say: Mastering #ArchiMate Edition III is done. It will take a bit of time to get it in your hands, but I am close. Some notes:
- PDF and Free Syntax Excerpt PDF will be released first and as soon as possible. Hardcover will follow later, that requires more work. End of September is my goal for the hardcover.
- The Free Syntax Excerpt is almost a book by itself, 56 pages including cover and it covers all of ArchiMate 3.
