Today The Open Group released the updated whitepaper, Integrating the TOGAF® Standard with the BIAN Service Landscape. This release might be beneficial for those architects in the banking space that use or considering to use TOGAF in conjunction with BIAN.
For those not familiar with BIAN, it is a not-for-profit organization which seeks to accelerate the adoption of Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) in the banking industry. It does so by promoting convergence
towards a common service landscape, and by providing semantic standards which makes it
easier and more cost-effective to integrate such services.
This whitepaper aims to support Enterprise Architects within the banking industry, reaping the synergies of two complementary industry frameworks:
- TOGAF®, an Open Group Standard, is a proven Enterprise Architecture methodology and framework used by leading global organizations to improve business efficiency.
- BIAN, the Banking Industry Architecture Network, delivers an overall framework and set of IT Service definitions and BIAN Business Scenarios specific to the banking industry, aimed at improving systems interoperability.
In the heart of the White Paper, both the TOGAF standard and BIAN are mapped to each other. The leverage of the BIAN deliverables in the context of the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM) is further elaborated. For each step in an architecture development process, the integration of BIAN deliverables is described.
