Avolution’s ABACUS® 4.0 is ArchiMate® 2.0 Certified

Avolution today announced that its latest release of ABACUS (version 4.0) is now officially certified against The Open Group’s standard, ArchiMate® 2.0 (see Avolution’s press release here). I want to point out that I’m not sponsored by Avolution or any other vendor but what’s interesting from my point of view is that currently only a three tools are currently ArchiMate 2.0 certified: ABACUS® 4.0, Architect 3® by BiZZdesign and ArchiMate for IBM’s System Architect® (see The Open Group’s Tool Certifcation Register here).

Seems to me that the other vendors struggle with the flexibility in relation to the metamodel which is required by ArchiMate 2.0 (see this post for more details on that issue).

I’ll keep an eye on other ArchiMate 2.0 tool certifications… 😉
