Abstract. Software systems are constructed using many different solutions. In practice it is important to assess different software systems. The most effective method of comparing software systems is to use a predefined reference architecture model as the basis for comparison. In this paper an ECORAM presentation layer reference architecture model is proposed. ECORAM is an extended common reference architecture model which contains a crucial number of elements used in systems investigation. The reference architecture is described using ArchiMate notation. For each element of the reference architecture a search for a mapping to the selected solution architecture is performed. When mapping fails it is assumed that a given feature of the reference architecture doesn't exist in the target system. Comparisons can be based on different aspects and the quality of metrics for predefined aspects may be defined. In this paper a comparison examples of different visualization solutions of business intelligence and game systems are presented.
