ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Business process models that describe cross-functional integration and end-to-end streaming of information help develop business roadmaps and transformation plans for information technology portfolios. By delivering process knowledge related to “what” the business does, the planning cycle can focus on people, process and information relationships where applications and data are thereby related to the process they support. Some of the outcomes of adopting this approach include quicker scoping of current state process models and less time assessing impacts and risks. In addition, project dependencies, stakeholder impacts (business and IT) and program and project planning around key people is simplified. Consequently, better methods to classify business requirements, use cases and test plans and a more streamlined handoff to production and business implementation arise.
