Taking a Careful Slice – Defining Business Architecture

he definition I’m considering at this time is:

Business Architecture is
1. A specialization of the Enterprise Architecture business function that collects and manages functional, structural, and motivation-related information using a rigorous scientific and engineered approach for the purposes of business design, functional improvement, motivational alignment and decision support. [Updated, 5 Sept 12]
2. A subset of the architectural description of an enterprise sufficient to produce models that meet the functional, motivational, and alignment concerns of stakeholders. [Updated 11 Sept 12]

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/nickmalik/archive/2012/08/27/taking-a-careful-slice-defining-business-architecture.aspx

Enterprise Architecture is the continuous practice of describing the essential elements of a sociotechnical organization, their relationships to each other and to the environment, in order to understand complexity and manage change.
