The ‘Cercle CESAM’ is a working group whose aim is to develop and share a pragmatic international standard for system architecture and to define it by major industrial domain. For the business benefit of its members.

Today, the ‘Cercle CESAM’ has about fifteen members, including Framatome, Sagemcom, Safran (SHE, SAE, SED), Dassault Systèmes, Idemia, Airbus and Somfy.

The 2 axes of work of the group are : Method and tools (formalise and share applications of the CESAM method by major sectoral fields (case studies, good practices, tooling methods, etc.)) and Professionalisation (to contribute to the professionalisation of the systems architect profession in order to enhance the value of architects within their organisations).

The first deliverable in 2021 will be the white paper on “the role of the architect“.
