Why Business Architecture – The 75 Word Challenge

I was asked to explain why Business Architecture in 75 words or less. Here’s my response (in only 65 words). Agree? Disagree? Can you do better? Your feedback most welcome! ~~~~~~~~~~~ Business innovation coupled with massive digitization is the hot topic in business circles far and wide. The challenge in transforming the organization, however, is that the complexity is far too great, and involves far too many players, to hold in any one person’s head. The need for explicit architecture thus arises – not IT architecture, but ones suited for capturing relevant aspects of the business itself. www.BRSolutions.com

    Ron,

    I am not sure if your response answers the question – why business architecture? Every business has an architecture. However, for an organization to function optimally, the key elements of the architecture must be in sync. Best results come from aligning Organization, Business Process, Applications/Systems, Data Architecture. This is seldom done because it is a significant task and requires one to think deeply about the core operations of the business. Changes are typically made piecemeal, which results in the inefficiencies that we see in even large, well known and supposedly well run companies.

      Sukumar, Yes, every business has an architecture, but most are simply by default. I mean one deliberately designed.
