The Business Challenge
Operating a business today depends on a combination of people, processes and systems to generate a high quality assured product for customers, in an increasingly regulated environment. Management needs:
- Confidence that the information presented to them is current and correct
- Assurance that statutes and regulations are being complied with
- Assurance that the business is resilient to an agreed range of potential disruptions
Business related data is often held in a number of formats; scanned copies of papers, MS Office documents, spreadsheets, Visio diagrams etc. Regulations are generally accessed over the internet when staff need to check details. The data is not linked making maintenance of corporate memory difficult. Establishing any sort of causal linkage or business dependencies can be a major challenge.
The goal is to optimise access to and usage of coherent and consistent information. As new questions arise, no one can afford the disruption of starting with ‘a clean sheet of paper’. They will want to adapt ways of working and software tools to assure continuing operations.
A simple to use, logical process
RJD has developed CyCURE®, a simple process to capture a business enterprise as a series of entities that represent the people, the processes, information and systems that constitute the business enterprise. By holding these entities in a relational Enterprise Architecture database, the disparate collection of data can be structured, allowing a coherence and completeness check to be undertaken and for key information to be delivered to decision makers in a rigorous and timely fashion
CyCURE® enables business efficiency
The CyCURE® approach enables a business to adapt their processes and tools at a pace to suit them. It does not force change. It exploits Sparx Enterprise Architect commercial software product, with custom scripts tailored to the specific issues of concern to each client. The underlying governance and data management is common across all instances of the CyCURE® process.
RJD will train staff in the client organisation to run the CyCURE® process ‘in house’ or we can discuss a suitable support package.
