Business Architecture Principles

The Business Side of an Enterprise Is A Producer of Services and Items Satisfying Demands

  • Define the products and services, the core business and the enterprise capabilities
  • Define the enterprise realm with its multiple dimensions
  • Define the mission and the sustainability goals

The Enterprise Is A Single Systemic Entity, Comprised of Multiple “Work” Systems Which Must Be Aligned and Integrated

  •  Work System Integration and Alignment are defined by results/products which are then consumed in one or more other work systems, or the market
  • Process modeling is necessary but a process by itself is insufficient to produce a result or to provide business requirements
  • Define all Work Systems with the same architecture: Result, Capability, Guidance, Process, Specification, Resources, Input, Demand
  • Alignment is aided by an Enterprise Functional Framework as well as the interdependency for results/products
  • The requirements basis for an operational Application System is a Business/Work System; retain a one to one relationship

Patterns Are Essential to All Enterprise Architectures; Design and Governance

  • Productive, systemic, reliable and efficient effort follows
  • Assets can be more readily developed and applied when patterns are carried throughout
  • Both control and adaptability are enhanced

An Enterprise Level Map of Facilities Identifies Where Work Is Done

  •  Capabilities are organized by facility
  •  Facilities need to be connected for communication and for transfer of results/products
  •  Infrastructure is established in and managed by facilities.
