    Our upcoming webinar, based on the white paper 'Business Requirements Harmonization Across Perspectives: Bridging the Gap,' delves into the challenges of aligning diverse perspectives - such as BIZBOK®, BABOK®, and TOGAF® - in today's dynamic business environment. We will streamline and navigate the concept of requirements across these perspectives, highlighting enterprise architecture concepts and extended relationships from a BIZBOK perspective. Additionally, we will illustrate our findings using a real-world use case. Join us if you're involved in business strategy - whether as a business analyst, enterprise architect, project manager, or senior executive. Gain insights into how clear strategic intent translates into organized implementation efforts using requirements. Discover how shared understanding, facilitated by requirements, enhances strategy execution.

    One view of customer service defines it as “a direct one-on-one interaction between a consumer and company representative, commonly engaged when a consumer is buying a product or service.” In reality, customer services are not constrained to people-delivered offerings, especially as AI takes over more roles previously performed by people. A second misconception in the above definition is that services are realized primarily during product acquisition. In the service industry in particular and all industries in general, most services are sought after and delivered post-acquisition. Consider bank customers obtaining money, paying off a loan, or correcting an account, or a transportation company delivering services to ensure that the customer and/or their shipment gets to the right place in a timely manner. Even retailers or manufacturers provide aftermarket services, including repairs and replacements. Business architecture provides a powerful value add to organizations seeking to optimize their ability to deliver customer services in the form of “product entitlements”. Join us for this webinar as it explores essential aspects of business architecture that play a central role in improving customer service delivery across the private and public sector.

    The Business Architecture Guild has an established metamodel that details essential knowledgebase domains and associations needed to deploy and scale a BIZBOK® Guide-aligned, business architecture practice, with the latest version of this metamodel described in a Guild whitepaper. In parallel, with full Guild participation and leadership, a group of vendor and related member organizations of the Object Management Group (OMG) created a formal specification called the Business Architecture Core Metamodel (BACM), which is targeted for publication in early 2024. While the Guild metamodel and BACM are conceptually aligned, they also differ in a number of ways, with BACM being tool-implementable. The Guild metamodel team published a whitepaper detailing similarities and differences to enable in-house practices using the Guild metamodel and relying on BACM compliant vendor tools. The BA Guild Metamodel / Business Architecture Core Metamodel v1.0 Alignment (Part 3) webinar highlights key points from the whitepaper along with best practices for deploying these metamodels in practice. Webinar Part 3 picks up where Part 2 left off and focuses on product, interdisciplinary alignment (Requirement, Customer Experience, Process) and Policy.
