Business architecture is the analysis and design of business strategy, structures, capabilities, processes and metrics. As a discipline, it has a broad scope. As a practice, teams typically focus on a few areas of strategic importance to a firm.
In some cases, key elements of the Business Architecture may be done in other activities; for example, the enterprise mission, vision, strategy, and goals may be documented as part of some wider business strategy or enterprise planning activity that has its own lifecycle within the enterprise.
Develop a business architecture strategy based on a situational awareness of various business scenarios and motivations. Apply a structured business architecture approach and methodology for capturing the key views of the enterprise.
