Enterprise Business Modeling using Industry Standards
Effective and practical business modeling is key capability in any enterprise architecture practice. Many organizations struggle with enterprise business modeling due to the use of proprietary notations and tools (or because of the absence of an appropriate tool - i.e. not PowerPoint). Using industry standard notations and metamodels supports sustainable modeling by providing a common reference point for training, resource acquisition, and tool selection. As one of the outcomes of the TOGAF-MDA Synergy project, the speaker will describe how to use various specifications from the Object Management Group (OMG) - such as the Business Motivation Model (BMM), the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN), and the Unified Modeling Language (UML) - for business architecture and modeling
