A paper demonstrating the integral role played by Business Process when implementing Business Architecture.

“I understand the need for a business architecture and how it is used to document our strategic direction. I also see how it assists with the translation of our business needs into the requirements for our application and technology, but what roles does business process play and how does it fit into business architecture?”
