Business Architecture

Structure in a complex world

Numerous departments work together when, for example, car manufacturers develop a networked vehicle: Engineers are responsible for the hardware, software developers for the apps. Employees from marketing and sales state the information they would like to receive about the individual drivers. Lawyers explain which data protection regulations have to be observed. And much more. The world has become more complex – and not only for OEMs. In all companies the individual departments work hand in hand, the individual steps of the value-added chain are closely interlinked, and almost every process is portrayed in IT terms.

Complete overview of all elements

For the companies it has thus become an important and demanding task to fully review their own organization and understand all connections and relationships. A business architecture helps companies here, because this strategic tool systematically portrays all elements of an organization and its interactions: from the processes to the IT systems through to the data, from the competences to the products through to the services.

A business architecture provides tried-and-tested models for various perspectives. For example, the company can be viewed from a strategic and planning viewpoint, from a professional perspective, or from the employees' view. All elements of the organization are combined across the individual perspectives. A coherent image is derived from loose fragments.
