BIAN and The Open Group collaborated to produce a white paper, in which the core elements of the two individual frameworks have been projected onto each other. This is a practical document, which will be used by enterprise architects within banks and the vendor community who wish to reap the benefits of both architecture frameworks. There are clear synergies in using BIAN’s Service Landscape in combination with TOGAF ®. When applying TOGAF®, an Open Group standard, in a banking environment, the BIAN content will speed up the work by providing banking-specific architecture content. On the flip side, TOGAF provides a structured approach and adds value to the BIAN deliverables for the project approach and capability to perform.
