GC Enterprise Architecture/Business Capability Model
The business capability concept is a top-down view of an organization. It is a key element and often the first step in a Business Architecture discipline. It gives us a different way to look at the major components of our organizations using a shared framework that bridges Programs and Services. This technique helps us in identifying where there are commonalities versus where there are very different or unique activities. With this understanding, we can work towards a more cohesive enterprise.
The GC BCM is a view of the whole Government of Canada as one large organization. Thus, one department's specific capability may be part of the bigger core capabilities of the GC BCM (mostly Section 6).
Here are some benefits of business capabilities:
- provide a way to communicate between IT and business in a common language;
- enable laser-like business investment focus;
- serve as a baseline for strategic planning, change management, and impact analysis;
- lead directly to business service specification and design; and
- clarify/organize/structure modernization and transformation approaches for IT architectures.
Since the GC BCM is of higher level (Level 0 & Level 1), departments is expected to use the GC BCM as a baseline to build their departmental BCM by building deeper into Level 2, 3, and so on.
The tables below reflect the GC BCM 2.0 Model with proposed updates for the future version (that are flagged and considered under construction). A request to GC EARB will be made to endorse the formal adoption of updates to the model.
