IBM Banking Business Functions Vocabulary for Banking Process and Service Models (OPTIONAL)



This update of IBM Banking Process and Service Models version 8.8.0 (BPS) provides Banking Business Functions support.

Download Description

The Business Functions content can be used as a starting point for extending the Process models contained in the Analysis Process Model, as part of a top-down development methodology.

It contains:

  • Functions that show the core processing activities of financial services institutions
  • A consistent enterprise-wide lexicon for identifying and naming process activities and triggers in a manner that is independent of product, channel, organization structure or technology.

The Banking Business Functions supplemental vocabulary is available for adding on to the Banking and Financial Markets Business Vocabulary that is shipped as part of BPS 8.8.0.

The download package contains:
  • An XML file that can be imported and overlaid onto the Banking and Financial Markets Business Vocabulary 8.8.0 resulting in the addition of new Business Function categories and terms.
  • A Rational Software Architect Project which has the same model content as BPS 8.8.0, with the addition of mappings between the Analysis Process Model and the Business Function terms in IGC
  • A readme file with details of how to install the RSA Project and the IGC Vocabulary
  • A comprehensive User Guide with a detailed overview of the Business Functions
