BIAN and its role in the banking industry
The Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) is a worldwide collaborative not-for-profit ecosystem formed of leading banks, technology providers, consultants and academics that offers a future-proof technology framework to standardise and simplify the core banking architecture. (More info: BIAN)
The common goal is to lower the cost of banking and to boost innovation in the industry.
The BIAN framework architecture is laid out in models.
BIAN uses BiZZdesign software for modeling the BIAN Object Models, the Control Records and the Scenarios (using Archimate® and UML languages), unfortunately BiZZdesign lacks the facility to export the UML models to XMI.
At Envizion we make these UML models available to anyone by offering them in generic (XMI) and tool specific formats.
These formats will allow you to elaborate, in the tool of your choice, your own logical and physical models, database scripts, where you can use the BIAN models as a starting point.
The BIAN Models have the objective to facilitate Financial Industry stakeholders to exchange financial Industry information and information services.
BIAN uses Archimate® and UML as modeling languages. The UML models however can not be exported. Thus, we have converted these.
The UML models can be grouped in 3 categories:
- The BIAN Data or Business Object Models
- The BIAN Control Records
- The BIAN Scenarios
