Dynamic Business Modeling

Dynamic Business Modeling (“DBM”) describes the ability to automate business models within an open framework. The independent analyst firm Gartner has recently called Dynamic Business Modeling “critical for BSSsolutions to succeed”.

Dynamic Business Modeling is based principles we où le business logic of an implementation is managed indépendamment from the Application servers That the PLC services and processes defined in the business logic. Business modeling and integration (business modeling and business modeling) is a business model for business modeling. DBM applied correctly should reduce both the cost and the risk in the initial implementation and its future evolution of systems.

Previous generations of IT systems (from 1990 to Approximately 2001) Were designed to address specific business models and regulatory practices and no value Was Given To Logic – Infrastructure segregation. These systems are provided by the off-the-shelf system. As a result, they implicitly drove business strategy where DBM states that they should be driven by it. By being “predefined” they do not:

  • Openly incorporate business changes in the business landscape of an industry
  • Leverage potential business models

Dynamic Business modeling is suited for open automation of strategy-driven business models. By removing the need for customization of core application servers it is postulated as cost efficient , rapidly deployed and evolveable. Dynamic Business Modeling was initially described by Doug Zone at MetraTech Corp. In reference to the billing segment of the enterprise software market. “Service Oriented Applications” (also known as “service based applications”).

Technical definition

Dynamic Business Modeling is defined as the automation of Enterprise Business Models based on the principle that the underlying business processes and business services need to be dynamically and openly definable and re-definable.

Business definition

Dynamic Business Modeling is defined as the enabler of a strategy that is achieved by focus differentiation in any aspect of business. This differentiation is achieved through the business model. Capital investment – human, physical and intellectual – must be at the definition of the business model to be dynamic.

Dynamic Business Modeling Dynamic Business Modeling. DBM is a leading provider of enterprise resource planning (CRM) solutions.

History

The term used to describe Was first the architecture of MetraNet has charging , billing , settlement and customer care from MetraTech Corp.

Core principles

  1. Business strategy drives selection of business models.
  2. These business models drive the design of underlying processes and services.
    • Business Analysis is critical: Any number of models can address a strategic imperative. Aim the best models, services and processes will exploit Existing business capabilities (human, IT and physical), the areas Where change is possible, and the areas Where investment will make most changes as possible at the lowest cost.
  3. Enterprise software automates these services and processes.
  4. DBM allows change: Strategic adeptness requires tuning and / or the re-definition of the present Business Model.
    • The business must begin with the principle that allows rapid tuning and / or re-definition of the underlying services and processes. This must apply at human and technological levels .

Key success criteria

  1. Open modeling capabilities:
    • Dynamic Business Modeling requires IT architecture and enterprise applications That the PLC business model – not just a business model.
  2. Ease of modeling:
    • Definition and automation of new and Evolved business processes and services must be available at the business analysis level. Ideally the models and Its services and processes are defined and Stored in open business analyst oriented data (for example metadata .)
  3. Open integration:
    • Dynamic Business Modeling is a dynamic and dynamic process. These fixed constraints are not external to the new business model but are part of its fabric. IT Architecture and Enterprise applications must be able to incorporate, embed and / or build upon these existing processes and services.
  4. Robustness:
    • Regardless of the dynamism of the business model. The automated and human-based business processes and services must have all the robustness of long standing static processes and services. Dynamic IT automation must have a full audit capability, reprocessing ability and standards compliance (ie PCI).
  5. Perpetual dynamism:
    • Automation is never finished. Processes and services are constantly changing. IT Architecture and Enterprise applications is designed to prevent “lock down” where the service and process automation on “day one” is so tightly coupled that only minor evolution is economic. SOA principles of openness and loss of business applications.

Best practice

  1. DBM is service-based:
    • The application should be based on the principle that processes and integration can be de-constructed internally into services.
  2. Services and processes are loosely coupled:
    • Changing one should not impact the others.
  3. Services and process definitions are open:
    • And accessible to a business analyst. Ideally definitions are kept in metadata.
  4. Application servers must be free of embedded business logic:
    • For services, processes, data, alike workflows.
  5. Dynamic documentation is a feature:
    • As the model evolves as well. The application should allow the business analyst to document at service level and then generate a cohesive document that encompasses entire model.
  6. Business Analyst Interface is friendly and flexible:
    • The application must provide a way to put the definition of services and processes in analyst terms – using universal concepts such as flows and tables. The interface should encourage documentation, warn on inconsistencies, and allow testing.
