Under the stewardship of The Open Group, the TOGAF and ArchiMate standards have reached a large audience of those wishing to address the theory and practice of Enterprise Architecture.

However, there are potential boons on offer should TOGAF and ArchiMate be successfully employed in conjunction.
This document introduces some of the ways that EA practitioners think this might happen.
