Documenting Business Capabilities
Business Capabilities and Business Process make up the means by which architecture is defined for commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software purchased by The State of Vermont (SOV). Business capabilities represent the “what” the business needs to accomplish. Business processes indicate the “how” the “what” is accomplished.
