Relevance of Business Architecture
Business architecture is the blueprint that aims to fulfil the business strategy. It is an operating model designed to operate in unison amongst its various components, these components are Goals, Facades, Processes, Entities and Communication. By modelling these components, the Business Architecture created and maintained enabled the business to intentionally direct the organisation towards the stated strategy.

These models also allow in-depth analysis of interactions within the organization, with customers and third parties. Modelling of processes, business entities and communication enables the business to understand the gaps between the business strategy and operating model – thus enabling senior business executive to quickly troubleshoot and fix gaps.

About Business Architecture
Business architecture is the “how” to align operating model to the business strategy. It describes the components, the approach and the on-going process to manage the architecture effort. Traditional Enterprise Architecture (EA) has tended to be more Information Technology linked, the current and future state of EA is towards a more business oriented approach – hence Business Architecture.
