Business Architecture

The Business Architecture describes how an organization operates and the environment in which it operates. This starts with defining the motivation of the business and how these interact and drive the capabilities of the organization. The capabilities of an organization are described by the interaction of the organization's people (i.e. structure, skills and culture), business processes (i.e. functions, processes, business rules and procedures), technology (i.e. applications, technology platforms and infrastructure) and information.
