BIAN UML Models for every modeling tool
Start working with BIAN Data or Business Object Models in the Modeling tool of your choice
BIAN and its role in the banking industry
The Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) is a worldwide collaborative not-for-profit ecosystem formed of leading banks, technology providers, consultants and academics that offers a future-proof technology framework to standardise and simplify the core banking architecture. (More info: BIAN)
The common goal is to lower the cost of banking and to boost innovation in the industry.
The BIAN framework architecture is laid out in models.
BIAN uses BiZZdesign software for modeling the BIAN Object Models, the Control Records and the Scenarios (using Archimate® and UML languages), unfortunately BiZZdesign lacks the facility to export the UML models to XMI.
At Envizion we make these UML models available to anyone by offering them in generic (XMI) and tool specific formats.
These formats will allow you to elaborate, in the tool of your choice, your own logical and physical models, database scripts, where you can use the BIAN models as a starting point.
A brief introduction to the BIAN UML models
The BIAN Models have the objective to facilitate Financial Industry stakeholders to exchange financial Industry information and information services.
BIAN uses Archimate® and UML as modeling languages. The UML models however can not be exported. Thus, we have converted these.
The UML models can be grouped in 3 categories:
- The BIAN Data or Business Object Models
- The BIAN Control Records
- The BIAN Scenarios
BIAN Data or Business Object
Models and Control Records
Models only (Control Records coming soon)!
The BIAN Object or Data Model concentrates on Foundational Information Building Blocks (Business Objects) and Derived Information Building Blocks (Control Records)
BIAN has a focus on meta-data (the meaning and structure of data and information)
- Provide a common vocabulary with unambiguous definitions, which can be used as the Esperanto to enable translation of financial concepts between different user communities (semantic community versus speech community)
- Apply Common basic data model structures
- Enable data interoperability (Open Data)
A standard set of elemental business objects A standard set of data model patterns that are IT and Organization Agnostic
These models cover a broad audience: from data analyst, data modeler, data architect, Database Administrator and more
BIAN Business Scenarios
Not yet available, COMING SOON!
The BIAN Business scenarios are a linked sequence of interactions between Service Domains in response to a business event.
A BIAN Business Scenario is not intended to define a standard process but is simply one viable example of possible behaviour. The flow is only set out to be read in a sensible sequence.
It is not intended to be exhaustive or complete. It helps to clarify the nature of the service exchanges between Service Domains and the role of the Service Domains by providing practical examples. They represent a dynamic view.
A standard set of possible flows
These models are intended for: Business Architects and Designers (Process Modelers) and more
