Enterprise and Business Architecture

Transforming your banking and insurance business, using industry standards, knowledge and commitment.

Would you build a house without using an architect?

Obviously not. There are specific requirements that have to be met when building a house:

  • How it will be built
  • Structural implications
  • Building regulations
  • Costs calculation

Neglecting these requirements will lead to:

Example of neglecting enterprise architecture
Replanning ! Reconstruction ! Extra Costs ! Delay in completion !

Doesn’t this also apply to your Enterprise and Business architecture?


What makes us good Enterprise Architects

we follow STANDARDS

As Envizion we think that it is very important to follow standards for your Enterprise and Business Architecture. As such Envizion follows:

  • Archimate
  • ISO 20022
  • BIAN


Envizion has a focus on financial services: banks and insurance companies. We believe that it is not only key to be a good enterprise or business architect with knowledge of the relevant standards, but you also need to be a subject matter expert.

Envizion architects have a past in banking or insurance.


Envizion shows its commitment by “walking the way it talks”. We are not just architects, but we are certified in the standards we apply and we play an active role in The Open Group, BIAN and much more.

Some of our commitments:

  • Chair and co-chair if the BIAN Information Architecture Workgroup
  • Member of the Architecture Framework & Foundation Workgroup
  • Member of ISO/TC68/SC8/WG2
  • Open Group/Archimate


As Envizion plays an active role in BIAN we are working on a number of solutions and deliverables based on the public available BIAN materials.

Amongst others we use the BizzDesign Enterprise Studio tool and the Archimate Language to create ready to use content and documents.


Based on the commitments we have, Envizion provides tailored services to banks and insurances. Just a few examples around BIAN:

  • A BIAN Quick start
  • How to Map your Landscape to the BIAN Landscape?
  • How to Map your Organization to BIAN?
  • Understanding the BIAN Reference Model


Envzion has certified trainers. We offer training for:
