Get a coherent view of your organization’s makeup, business processes, and insights to support strategic decisions.
Yes. Organizations need a Business Architecture because it gives a holistic, multi-dimensional business view of capabilities, end‐to‐end value delivery, information, and organizational structure. The value of Business Architecture is that it shows the relationships among these business views and strategies, products, policies, initiatives, and stakeholders.
What is Business Architecture vs. Enterprise Architecture? Enterprise Architecture provides a roadmap for organizational ‘change by design’ and aligns what your business wants to do now and in the future and how technology enables this. Business Architecture forms part of Enterprise Architecture and takes the business strategy and maps it against processes to describe how your organization generates value for its stakeholders.
TOGAF Business Architecture is a business architecture based on the TOGAF® Standard, a standard of The Open Group. Another example of a standard is the Business Architecture Body of Knowledge (BIZBOK®) from the Business Architecture Guild. Both are popular frameworks for developing an Enterprise Architecture and, as part of that, a Business Architecture. Bizzdesign combines and pre-packages these frameworks and standards as an accelerated approach to jump-start enterprise and business architecture programs.
Best practices in architecture are used by Enterprise and Business Architects to maintain quality when they model and design architectures. A modern tool like Bizzdesign Horizzon helps you design and model architectures that adhere to best practices. Capability-based Planning is an example of a best practice in architecture.
