What is Business Architecture?

STA Business Architecture bridges the gap between a company’s strategy and its successful execution.

We work with you to understand where your business really is, where it wants to go, and what it truly takes to get there — without the costly risk of trial-by-error. We integrate deeply into your organization to address all dimensions of your challenges and identify the best path to resolution and subsequent realization of strategic goals.

Why is Business Architecture Valuable?

Does your company suffer from chronic disconnect?

A common problem in today’s business: the upstream corporate vision fails to get successfully translated into actionable objectives. Downstream, critical coordination fails amongst business units, as well as between the business and IT.
