Description haut
AGATE is the name of a methodology used to manage the architecture of communication and information systems (CIS). It is designed to:
- provide a common framework for describing CIS architectures,
- ensure that this framework is applied by linking the various phases of a project,
- offer common baselines for objects modelling,
- simplify access to knowledge,
- provide tools for CIS governance initiatives: mapping existing situations, analysing the impact of changes, preparing baselines for target architectures, creating indicators for IT division management charts, etc.
The AGATE V3 reference manual (40 Mo downloading file only available in french) is composed of HTML pages gathered inside "S-CAT n°10002 guide", It joins the following parts:
