Business architecture is a holistic view of the business defined by multiple components. The business architecture decreases costs of business analysis activities for initiatives at both the enterprise analysis strategic level and at the project tactical level by using its components. It assures alignment of technology to business valued processes and improves business decision making by having visibility into business assets. 

In this course you will gain a better understanding of what the business architecture is, what the components are within it, what is needed to build it and how it can be leveraged.  Because the business architecture can have many components and artifacts, they may not all be applicable to every business.  The key is to gain a “good enough” understanding to communicate benefits of relevant enterprise architecture components and artifacts and know which will provide the most business value.



To get the most out of this course you will need to have some understanding of business analysis.
