From an architectural perspective, by Knowing BIAN, banking architecture professionals helps banks and financial institutions for 1) Strategic portfolio planning and value stream analysis and heatmapping (refers to BIAN Business Capability Model) toward creating value in their ecosystem; 2) Information exchange management (refers to BIAN Service
Landscape) toward enabling interoperability and open banking; and 3) Data management and analytics (refers to BIAN Business Object Model) toward getting a grip on business semantics and data landscape.
“Currently there is no certification specifically on banking architecture and no common language exists which architects can use to communicate within the bank or externally with IT vendors & the banking architecture community. BIAN helps fill this void. This certification provides a practical guide to banking architects to move away from proprietary architectures to banking industry standards.
The core of this certification lies in understanding the service landscape which helps in developing an enterprise blueprint/capability model which eventually reduces the downstream effort to develop micro services and API’s. Aside of this, EA practice can also leverage on the BIAN metamodel in Archimate notation to further enrich the practice and reduce overheads whilst aligning with industry best practices.
On an end note, understanding this book and passing the BIAN exam will soon become a hygiene factor for architecture professionals within the banking sector similar to the TOGAF exam which is fundamental for EA practitioners across industries.
Working with Van Haren, we can really differentiate from our competitors and deliver much more value to our customers.
It has enabled us to become one of the biggest TOGAF and Archimate trainers in the Netherlands.
”It’s a very good material and a great offer, I very much like to use it!”
