Enterprise Architecture Courses

What is the purpose of Business Architecture?

Business Architecture, as one of the Enterprise Architecture domains, regularly features on lists of hottest, most in-demand IT skills. Business Architecture is defined as the formalised description of an organisation; its essential capabilities and how it uses them to realise its strategic intent and objectives. The purpose of Business Architecture is to define the future state business and operating model, develop a roadmap to get from the current to the desired future state, establish a plan to achieve the business value from the change, and manage the progress along the way to achieve desired business outcomes with pace, certainty and agility. In this way, Business Architects support their business executives and organisational change leaders, fusing business acumen with technology vision, to propel the organisation forward into a new digital future.
