WCG Business Architecture Consultants
Both Business Architecture and Business Process Management improve alignment between business goals and IT systems. Business Architecture provides a framework for communication between business operations and technology to discuss and plan goals, strategies, required capabilities and information. It provides linkage between business goals and strategies to the technology supplied processes, services, and rules that support operations.
In addition to BA, using Business Process Management (BPM) for analysis and design of business processes – the ‘BP’ in BPM, facilitates alignment of business goals and IT systems. Just as important is the ‘M’ of BPM. ‘Management’ allows processes to be measured and monitored for performance, analyzed and reported on, and enables continual improvements at both the process and organizational level.
