Check out this new whitepaper from the Open Group in the area of Business Architecture. What are your thoughts on the latest edition in their World-Class EA Series? Does it get The Open Group or TOGAF closer and deeper into the business architecture world? Is the material useful? Love to hear your thoughts.
The whitepaper is entitled Business Reference Model part of the .
See the whitepaper description below:
Business architecture is being used to design, plan, execute, and govern change initiatives throughout public and private sector entities. An architectural approach can systematically highlight the most effective state for a given environment, and then define how change can be effected within acceptable benefit, cost, and risk parameters. A key challenge to this approach is the consistent definition of the organization and where it needs to be, and in response this White Paper introduces a comprehensive reference model for business. The Business Reference Model (BRM) can be applied to both private and public sector organizations alike, and gives complex organizations a common way to view themselves in order to plan and execute effective transformational change.
It is envisaged that the introduction of a BRM into a transformation planning exercise will increase collaboration across the business, increase awareness of organizational opportunity and risk, and facilitate more holistic business investment; all of which culminates in an improved and more sustainable working environment leading to a better working world.
