I spent a bit of time investigating the Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) standard.
I wanted an Archimate version so it would align with the rest of the enterprise architecture. Googling around I found some great work done by Wilmer Krisp in GitHub which was quick and easily accessible as opposed to the bian.org site who seem rather cagey with allowing a direct download of their open standard. It appears one has to first join to get access. A process I might still follow at some point. It just smacked of a typical bureaucratic laborious long winded drawn out process so I avoided it for now, especially while I was still investigating it to see if it was something I’d like to get involved with before committing.
There is some great work here. This is an example of some of the interrelated services defined.
Each Service has a fairly fine grained set of operations. Here is an example model of Customer profile.
All great work.
When exploring Wilmer’s model and comparing it to the online model from bian.org I noticed that the so called “Helper models”, (which must have a logical reason for being named as such, rather than just being called “business object” or “business class models”), were not yet represent in his model.
So I thought I might add them into the model. There are 118 of them. So below is the first one I did on Withdrawals.
Does anyone else also need these Business Object models, made up of ISO20022 plus the BIAN extensions? If so let me know and I’ll have more impetus for adding them. I already know of one company that is interested.
