Practitioners estimate 50% savings can be realized in business analysis and IT
At the Dutch National Business Architecture Conference in November 2010, the following question was asked in a survey to be filled in at the spot by practicing business architects, business analysts and IT managers: how much money do you estimate can be saved in business analysis and IT project if you yourself were to practice integrated business modeling using the CogNIAM protocol and the standards SBVR (Semantics of Business Vocabulary and business Rules) and BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation)?
The answer was 50 % (n=54).
If we extrapolate this estimate to the western world we arrive at yearly savings between 200 and 800 billion dollars. The question then comes up: why are we not realizing such enormous savings?
My primary assumption is that it is insufficiently known that such savings are realizable.
Hence one of the primary aims of this blog is to gradually build up the Conceptual Architecture to demonstrate how such savings can be realized.
