It’s like building the foundation for your home. When planning your enterprise architecture, a clear blueprint mapping the basic infrastructure of an organization can mean the difference between a chaotic mess or a beautiful support system.
Business capability maps provide a clear vision for future state of an organization’s applications, processes and business objects.

His universal design language unlocks data and statistics, makes them more digestible, fostering conversation and collaboration.
