The Purpose of Business Modeling


Within the context of this book, we can think of the terms business and business modeling in the broadest possible context. For example, your business may be the business of developing software or manufacturing welding robots, or you may wish to model a not-for-profit business or service organization or an intradepartmental process or internal workflow.

In any case, the purpose of business modeling is threefold:

  1. To understand the structure and dynamics of the existing organization

  2. To ensure that customers, end users, and developers have a common understanding of the organization

  3. To understand how to deploy new systems to facilitate productivity and which existing systems may be affected by that new system

Business modeling gives the team a logical approach to defining where software applications can improve the productivity of the business and helps determine requirements for those applications.
