Business architecture is a structured, model-driven approach to building an enterprise-wide understanding of the ways in which business strategy and value streams are translated into operation, integrating organisational, process and information elements.
A solid business architecture that assures the avoidance of redundancy, maximizes the sharing of capabilities and makes the best use of supporting resources, is essential. With a sound architectural foundation, business-wide transformation, digitisation and continuous improvement can be accomplished.
Business leaders such as CIO, CXOs and middle managers face major challenges in today's market. These include 'going digital'; implementing a ‘customer experience’ program; planning a major new business technology platform; wanting to beef up innovation, or reducing total cost of ownership. They are trying to define and interconnect strategy, policy, information, processes, capabilities, technical and human resources and other elements is essential.
They know what must be done, but are looking for ways to increase the probability of success. They are fully aware that there are more failure examples than success stories.
Without a solid Business Architecture, there will certainly be sub-optimization, redundancy and inconsistency across business operations with increasing difficulty to implement change.
Designing and managing a valid business architecture is a real business game-plan to win or differentiate, transform, and execute. This requires designing the right business solutions that provide the greatest return on investment to the business, avoiding duplication of function and effort and developing capabilities once for multiple uses across the processes of the organisation.
