An Introduction to Business Process and Enterprise Architecture

About this Resource

The purpose of Enterprise Architecture is to identify and manage the people, process and technology elements of an organization so that these are clearly understood and available in an interactive model which can then be used to evaluate existing operations and manage change. An Enterprise Architecture model provides a common foundation for discussion and exploration of the business and supports alignment of IT and business functions.

These elements or components can be categorized under operational (i.e. value chain) and supporting processes. However, effectiveness, completeness and connections between processes, people and technology are often incomplete, inaccurate or outdated. An enterprise wide analysis and discovery phase has to be part of implementing an Enterprise Architecture.

In this paper, Brian Hunt looks into the analysis phase that is required for classifying the processes and functions within the enterprise by identifying what processes fit with what, the purpose of these processes, how they are named and referenced, who owns them and associated performance metrics and other relevant attributes.
