I came across the blog post of Adrian Campbell about the open source Enterprise Architecture tool Essentials - http://protege.cim3.net/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?EssentialProject
One of the key concepts behind MIKE2.0 is to move from the traditional documents based collaboration to a tools based approach (e.g. for requirements capture, data quality improvement, data governance, policy and standard development etc.).
And it would obviously be great if the tool was open source. Sounds like Essentials would be an interesting candidate for modelling SAFE – Strategic Architecture for theFederated Enterprise – the architecture framework of MIKE2.0.
Has anyone used Essentials and is interested in giving it a go?
