Requirements on the Business System

Figure 4 allows us to separate the architectural concepts into three sections: those that address the requirements imposed on a business, those that address the business as a system that exists to deliver against those requirements, and a set of concepts that define the boundary where the business accepts the driving requirements and commits to various forms of value delivery.

 
Figure 4

The following sections define the concepts in this architecture, starting with the drivers, and then moving on to a discussion of the boundary concepts, and then finally a definition and explanation of each of the concepts in the business delivery systems.
