Customer Testimonials

From an architectural perspective, by Knowing BIAN, banking architecture professionals helps banks and financial institutions for 1) Strategic portfolio planning and value stream analysis and heatmapping (refers to BIAN Business Capability Model) toward creating value in their ecosystem; 2) Information exchange management (refers to BIAN Service Landscape) toward enabling interoperability and open banking; and 3) Data management and analytics (refers to BIAN Business Object Model) toward getting a grip on business semantics and data landscape.
Laleh Rafati
BIAN Information Architect Envizion
The BIAN certification is a great added value for architects acting in the banking industry. The knowledge obtained, allows you to significantly lower the overall integration costs and improve operational efficiency by re-use of capabilities. Having chaired the BIAN Certification working group we enabled these and many more benefits to organizations
Gerard Peters
FS Architecture community lead Benelux Capgemini
“Currently there is no certification specifically on banking architecture and no common language exists which architects can use to communicate within the bank or externally with IT vendors & the banking architecture community. BIAN helps fill this void. This certification provides a practical guide to banking architects to move away from proprietary architectures to banking industry standards. The core of this certification lies in understanding the service landscape which helps in developing an enterprise blueprint/capability model which eventually reduces the downstream effort to develop micro services and API’s. Aside of this, EA practice can also leverage on the BIAN metamodel in Archimate notation to further enrich the practice and reduce overheads whilst aligning with industry best practices. On an end note, understanding this book and passing the BIAN exam will soon become a hygiene factor for architecture professionals within the banking sector similar to the TOGAF exam which is fundamental for EA practitioners across industries.
