Business architecture has been accelerating for a decade. Although there are no universally accepted definitions and standards, interests in business architecture continue to grow. What exactly is business architecture? How it works? Is business architecture the missing link between strategy and execution? Is business architecture part of enterprise architecture?
In this presentation, Joanne will show you what business architecture is and how it works through a visual business architecture framework. She will explain how it connects business and IT and threads operations from strategy to execution. She will also explain the role of business architects.
