Business Architecture Framework Template



Capstera’s Business Architecture Framework Template is a basic resource to help business architects and those interested in the business architecture discipline gain a holistic and integrated perspective of the content and components involved in developing a successful business architecture practice. One of the challenges in business architecture and capability modeling is lack of a big picture of what it encompasses and how the various elements come together cohesively.

Business Architecture Framework Template

Business architects and enterprise architects can use the business architecture framework as a starting point and customize to the needs of the enterprise.  The contents and components of the business architecture framework will help in clearly articulating the composition, coherence, and value of business architecture in a simple format. 

Capstera’s business architecture framework template starts with business intent and direction. Then the core components of business architecture – business capabilities and value streams – take center stage. Processes, data, structure, and systems supplement the capabilities and value streams. Optionally, one can include business rules, risks, KPIs, stakeholders and other components to add color, context, and richness to the business architecture.

Another essential element of business architecture is relationships and associations mapped against different components.
