It's not easy to show that IT is focused on business goals and properly aligned to support them. A large part of the problem is that operational assets -- infrastructure, applications and so on -- are documented (if at all!) in one set of data stores, business information assets -- processes, rules, data and so on -- are documented in another. This session will present and demonstrate a common approach to managing operational and business information assets to support the desired integration.
