Architecture Modelling and Simulation of Information Systems

The architectural approach has proven as an effective tool for the organisation to understand its own structure and its relations with the environment. This is very important when designing the corporate architecture, developing or ordering large information systems.

The successful implementation of the architectural approach can lead the organisation to a new level of maturity and turn in to an advantage, that is difficult to copy or imitate by competitors.
