There is an enormous chasm between formulating a business plan and implementing it through the coordinated orchestration of resources and technology in support of a common vision.
The framework includes the meta-models, method and tooling for developing dynamic, interactive business blueprints that precisely explain how a business works;
We help you develop a common enterprise vocabulary based on clearly articulated business definitions, removing ambiguity, maximising reuse and reducing inefficiency;
We deliver an integrated, cohesive expression of business strategy aligned to business activities. You get a consolidated business operating model that is mapped to the underlying technology designs and software platforms that will support your business operation.
Building a CAPSICUM model is surprisingly quick and easy, yielding immediate value in small, incremental steps.
Working with your business teams, we rapidly harvest information from almost any existing documentation to create a detailed model of your business strategy and the lifecycle of information supporting your core business processes.
A CAPSICUM model is an enduring business asset that describes how your systems support your processes and facilitates change as your business evolves.
Documenting a business architecture can be a journey into uncharted waters. The concept is still quite immature, with few practical guidelines or useful templates available that describe what the structure and content of a business architecture should be. It's not uncommon to simply consolidate any existing analysis into a common repository and call it a business architecture. In effect, not much more than a mish-mash collection of out-of-date documents.
We know you can do better than that. Our approach is to establish a consolidated enterprise vocabulary that explains the dynamics and business logic of your operations in a structured "Ontology" - a consolidated, consistent, interactive model of the semantics of how your business operates. A Business Ontology decomposes the complex body of knowledge of your domain in all its variety of forms, into a single, unified, multi-dimensional model that precisely defines, explains and integrates all of the moving parts of the business. It is a complete, unified repository of knowledge; a business asset that is dynamic, interactive and enduring. Informed by business analysis, aligned to business strategy and a foundation for the designs of your underlying technology platforms and supporting business applications.
The CAPSICUM Framework is a step-by-step guide to building a business architecture model. You can think of CAPSICUM as a template that identifies everything you need to define and how all of these parts fit together. It has been described as “CAD/CAM for business”. Just as engineers develop detailed digital models that precisely explain the designs for a bridge before it is built, CAPSICUM helps business architects design precise models of a business before it is automated.
