October Meeting | Four business architecture pillars that can help you become more agile


According to the Business Agility Manifesto, the true measure of an agile business solution is the amount of business knowledge that is configured into it and how easily that knowledge can be changed or reconfigured.

For a business analyst, one of the best ways of managing business knowledge is having a business architecture model and knowledgebase. This helps the entire organization in acquiring and retaining business knowledge. Business analysts then have quick, trustable access to information that is helpful when delivering a change.

As business analysts act as the conduit of information, it is incredibly valuable that we can convert this information into The Knowledge Brief so that businesses can make great decisions.

Business architecture is more than just understanding and modelling your IT systems; it includes a deep understanding of the core business capabilities and processes required to succeed and add value to your customers, and then ties those together with how to fulfil them.

When you truly understand what you are aiming for, the 'how' becomes much easier to achieve. In its Requirements Analysis and Design and Techniques knowledge area and concepts, the BABOK defines much of what is required to build a requirements architecture.

In this session you will learn:

  • Knowledgebase vs knowledge brief
