Why Read This
Your organization's business processes cut across application boundaries, but traditional architectures reinforce these boundaries. In contrast with 20th-century solution models, which center on siloed, hard-walled applications and technologies, 21st-century application architectures should unify across silos, centering on the design of your business. Forrester created Business Capability Architecture (BCA), together with its six business design focal points, to guide your delivery of business-centered solutions that can provide continuous business optimization now and ongoing transformation over the long haul. This report describes the intent, design, and implementation of the business process design focal point of Forrester's Business Capability Architecture.
