Our business architect will help a client with the very first development of a required (technical) strategy and vision. In order to draw up a business architecture, our people intensively study the business processes involved and the way in which the infrastructure can support them. The business architect will conduct extensive discussions with ‘your business’: who are the stakeholders, what are the (future) plans, what investments are planned, what are the current solutions, and so on.
The most important information a business architect needs:
- Customer needs (now and in the future)
- Who are the stakeholders (which parties have a ‘voice’ in the process)?
- Insight into the ‘as-is’ situation
- The affected systems and processes to guarantee an integrated approach
- Governance rules; what is the policy, what are your regulations and requirements
- The developments and the existing solutions in the market
Ultimately, the business architect will provide a detailed vision and strategy document in which the customer needs are identified. This document also describes the solution path and associated benefits related to the current situation. It also considers the minimization of risks and impact on your organization during migration and maintenance (management). In short, the vision and strategy document fits seamlessly with your business strategy, roadmap and investment plans.
