Business Architecture Overview

Enterprise Business Architecture defines the enterprise value streams, their relationships to all external entities and other enterprise value streams, and the events that trigger instantiation. It is a definition of what the enterprise must produce to satisfy its customers, compete in a market, deal with its suppliers, sustain operations and care for its employees. It is composed of architectures, workflows and events.

Purpose:
The Enterprise Business Architecture defines the formal link between the enterprise business strategy and the results predicted from supporting strategic initiatives. Enterprise Business Architecture provides a single source and comprehensive repository of knowledge from which corporate initiatives will evolve and link. The evolution occurs from a fully integrated enterprise model of the business to all IT, organizational, and security architectures.

Enterprise Business Architecture also provides integration capabilities for software development, packaged software configuration, and process improvement initiatives. By using Enterprise Business Architecture, enterprises can formally engineer solutions that directly link to the desired results defined by the enterprise strategy. These are not "seat of the pants" type business projects, but rather "business by design."
