Visio as a modeling environment: • Visio is commonly used by organizations to design their architecture and business processes, perhaps because of its availability as part of the Microsoft Office suite.
Microsoft has estimated that 40% of all Visio diagrams that exist are process diagrams. • Conversely, Infoweek has reported that 60% of all process models in the world are documented in Visio.
This has led to a number of modeling tools basing themselves on the Visio platform. OBASHI The OBASHI® methodology provides a framework and method for capturing, illustrating, and modeling the relationships, dependencies, and data flows between business and Information Technology (IT) assets and resources in a business context. Core Principle • OBASHI is based on a core principle that IT exists for one reason—to manage the flow of data between business assets. • Business resources (which include people) and IT assets are either providers of data, consumers of data or providers of conduit through which the data can flow.
