Executive Summary

Business / IT alignment has been an elusive and consistent goal of both IT and the business. But, one big challenge IT faces is what to align with. Often, the business goals and strategy are not well understood or articulated. In this case, business architecture (BA) can provide important clarity. However, like anything else, BA in isolation will not provide any better alignment. Rather, the BA has to be integrated into the overall analysis and design process.

Part I provides an overview of the important aspects: process design, information design, and service identification. Part II provides an overview of the overall design process.
