Panorama 360 | Enterprise Business Architecture Frameworks (454 pages)
is a framework for planning and designing of insurance organizations, processes, and technology. It covers the full breath of the Wealth Management and Insurance industry. It is a practical reference model. It allows the enterprise to capture and leverage its own process and organization knowledge.

The framework includes such concepts as: segmenting target markets, improving product development process, managing customer relationships, cross selling products, maximizing distribution channel effectiveness, measuring business success, and supporting
business functions with the appropriate technology.

The models in this document represent the first three levels of functional
decomposition of:
  • Business Domains (11 domains)

  • Business Functions (500+ business functions) or capabilities

Operational Risk
To conduct an operational risk assessment … you can use the value chain and the 75 major capabilities. You will be able to assess the risk level of each of them and priorities.  
In this 2 minutes and a half video, I'd like to show you how the enterprise business architecture framework in Panorama 360 for insurance and wealth management was used to manage operational risk in an organization.

You can have a look at the 75 Major Capabilities Map in the sample below.
Impact Analysis
With the Enterprise Business Architecture Framework, you can analyze the impacts that projects can have on technology, on processes, on management of change as well as the interdependencies between projects, to name a few. With modeling tools, the impacts can be identified on many more levels.
In this 4 minutes video, I'd like to show 
you an example how to use the enterprise business architecture framework coming from Panorama 360 to do impact analysis in your organization.   
This is one situation. There may be many other types of situation but this is one use case.   
In this situation, we'll be talking about the Value Chain and we will also be bringing in the Major Capability map at the second level plus the information subjects from the information structures as well as the business integration that exists between the different capabilities in the organization. We will bring in also functional capabilities as well as information topics plus the ownership that exists within those two.
Capability Based Planning
To conduct Capability Based Planning, this can be done at various levels of granularity which can be mapped against the strategies, depending on the planning needs.
In this 2 minutes and a half video, I will show an example on how to use the Panorama 360 Enterprise Business Architecture Framework to perform Capability Based Planning in your organization.  
For this example, we'll be using three  
components of Panorama 360 which will be the Value Chain, the Major Capability and the Functional Capabilities at the third level of decomposition.  
Using Panorama 360, you will find out which capabilities need attention from management and which do not. The reference framework from Panorama 360 will help you do a thorough analysis and document it.
