Enterprise Modeling supports the lifecycle of a process at a conceptual level. By combining the goals of traditional business process analysis with process governance, together with simulation and optimization, Enterprise Modeling moves further to establish governance for a complete corporate business architecture. Corporate business architecture may be divided into three central elements: Business Architecture, Information Architecture, and Enterprise (IT) architecture.
Information Architecture contains the re-documentation of the information structures of SAP NetWeaver Business Intelligence systems. Thereby supporting the planning and design of an enterprise-wide data warehouse. Achieve transparency of data flows and data structures within the whole company.
Enterprise (IT) Architecture focuses on the planning of IT and enterprise architecture supported by standardized architecture frameworks. Standardize and harmonize the system landscape based on business requirements. Through alignment with process models of the Business Architecture, an integrated overview of processes and IT landscapes is achieved.
