Training Modules

BIAN offers a series of shorter more targeted training modules, which delve into key topics in more detail. These standalone interactive sessions are delivered by a trainer with an in-depth knowledge of BIAN. Each presentation is 60 minutes long, followed by 30 minutes for questions and discussion.

Modules that we offer:

a. BIAN Overview – A high level run through and overview of the range of available training topics. This module is suited to business and management oriented employees and also provides a useful framework and context for the more detailed training modules designed for architects and developers

b. Explaining how the BIAN Model is Capability Based – BIAN was formed to tackle and solve the excessive complexity and inefficiencies arising from overlapping process based systems. Through comparison with “City Planning and Building Architecture” we will teach participants to specify and apply a canonical model (i.e. one that can be consistently interpreted by all banks and solution providers).

c. What is a Service Domain – Defining the design techniques used to isolate and define a BIAN Service Domain, how it is ‘right-sized’, the definitions of ‘functional patterns’, ‘generic artifacts’, ‘control records, and ‘action terms’ with extended definitions where appropriate.

d. The BIAN Service Landscape – A walk through all of the elements that make up the BIAN Service Landscape version release: the Service Landscape; Business Scenarios; service operations; Tooling updates (where appropriate) and How To Guides. This module includes an overview of the internal practices of the Working Groups so members can determine where they might wish to participate in shaping the BIAN framework.

e. Point solutions – In this module we teach participants how they can migrate away from their current state (point solutions) to the desired state, Service / API driven connectivity. Describing how BIAN’s extended definitions are used to provide a design foundation for point solutions. Including a standard project engagement model with business case definition, task planning and example BIAN related deliverables.

f. Semantic API Development – An explanation of the BIAN Semantic API Guide that can be used to develop APIs aligned with the BIAN Service Domain service operations. This will include case study examples from the related CMU Capstone project and, BIAN Member Case Studies.

g. Applying Semantic API Designs – A more detailed explanation of considerations when applying the BIAN Semantic API specifications in different technical situations. This session will cover external (open) APIs, Internal “A2A’ connectivity, the use of Enterprise Service Business and Cloud technology and legacy host wrapping considerations. Examples will be referenced where available

h. Model Bank & heat mapping – Describes how to develop an Enterprise Blueprint (Model Bank) and how to select and apply business- or technology viewpoints to the model (Heat Mapping). Example model banks will be presented to jump start development.
