GOVERNANCE AND BUSINESS PROCESS INTEGRATION
IBA works with the federal organizations to support and facilitate the development of enterprise governance, standards management, and business process integration standards. We support the definition and establishment of policies, procedures, and technical standards to maintain the uniformity of business process initiatives. We help organizations determine and develop business rules and a governance structure to align acquisitions to strategic priorities. Our governance and business process integration specialists coordinate with governance boards, assess alignment to data architecture processes, and improve data governance and analysis to better align with the data governance framework.
