Abstract—The Information System (IS) is currently the main part of the business strategic dimension. The urbanization of information systems is necessary for a global vision of the IS architecture over space and duration for any computerization project. It proposes defining a coherent development plan in phase with the strategy, trades, and the processes. Many frameworks, methods and software tools of Enterprise Architecture (EA) are available on the market and have integrated the concepts of urbanization which are inspired by cities’ urbanization. In addition, these methods may be provided in a different way from a tool to another. Some of these tools include the urbanization concepts; however other tools are lacking these concepts but allow the possibility of extension. It is in this context that the subject of this paper that allows customizing a modeling tool in order to take into accounts some concepts and specific urbanization’s rules. Such customization is based on the previous work on the urbanization of enterprise's information systems and applied on a well defined tool that is Archi which is based on the Archimate framework after a study of the tools available on the market. In addition, this article shows how we can customize Archi tool for the needs of the urbanization of the information system.
