BAM – Business Architecture Modelling

The dynamic nature of the ICT industry across the world has led to newer business models enabled by emerging technologies. It’s imperative for CSPs to take advantage of these opportunities to quickly adapt to these changing market conditions and growing customer needs. CSPs therefore need to have smarter infrastructure in place, backed by agile and robust architectures.  The challenge is to bring together the different elements; the processes, products, people, technologies, and data, to deliver real value to customers and stay profitable. Companies that move into the Cloud environments will also be faced with critical questions on ‘when’ and ‘how’ these elements will be managed through an effective architecture that suits the business.

Over time, businesses will acquire different software, and those organizations that do not have a strategically thought-out architecture in place will have invested in mounting costs and resources to maintain sudden changes and new adaptations of technology that will ultimately affect company profitability and the ability to stay ahead of competition.

Global Wavenet’s Business Architecture Modelling (BAM) tool assists CSPs and enterprise organizations to reduce the inherent complexities in transforming Enterprise Architectures by mapping the organization’s business processes, data models, applications and API’s to bridge the gap between business and technology to deliver value to all stakeholders including customers.

The Wavenet BAM tool, based on TMF Frameworx, supports the overall business strategy by facilitating the production of a “to-be” architecture, maintaining unified communication amongst all stakeholders and managing incremental change with robust governance. The Wavenet BAM tool exposes the hierarchical view of the current architecture, analyses the relationships between the elements to identify any missing processes, data, applications or APIs which can help produce the ideal Enterprise Architecture.
