Add new definition Architecture & Business Architecture (Niki)
-> Business architecture ties together a diverse ecosystem that represents an enterprise from different perspectivesThese include goals, strategies, and tactics; subsidiary entities, business units and teams; semantics and rules; capabilities and processes; initiatives, programs and projects; and customers, partners and suppliers.We call those “artefacts,” and along with the relationships among these artefacts, these are called the building blocks of an architectureBy utilizing a common approach to represent the various business artefacts, business architecture makes visualizing complex business ecosystems a reality.The business architectural model is translated into different views within the business domain of an organisationwe will explain each of these views more in detail by the structure of this temple.As you can see the temple is divided into different structural blocks such as the roof, the pillars, the foundation,……Each of these parts do have a meaning within the business architectural framework and are taken up in a specific business view which we will explain in the next slides The area around the temple: external factors The roof: the mission The construction block underneath the roof: goals & objectives The next construction block: value proposition The three pillars: the operational model

Business processes are often task oriented and application dependent. Internal controls are not embedded in the process creating efficiency leaks. Roles and responsibilities within the organization are not clearly defined and internal SLAs are not respected. Projects are not delivering what was required by the business and clients. Business requirements are not clearly defined allowing ICT to be in the driving seat for projects.
