In order to fulfil the Technical Architecture and Business Architecture Sub-Committee (TABASC) obligations as set out under SEC Section F1.4, the Business Architecture Document (BAD) has been developed, which describes the Business Architecture for GB Smart Metering.
The BAD is accompanied by the Business Architecture Model (BAM), which provides a high-level view of the processes set out within the BAD. In advance of Release 2.0 going live later this year, the BAD has been updated to apply the Release 2.0 content as well as other necessary SEC content updates, and already made available for review.
Subsequently, the supporting Release 2.0 changes to the supporting BAM have been drafted and an industry review is being undertaken to provide an opportunity for SEC Parties, and other interested parties to provide views on the changes.
Any interested parties will be able to log onto the draft model to review the Release 2.0 changes via the Evolve Portal link. If you would like to receive login details to the draft model, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and access will be set up to enable you to review the model changes.
The following attached documentation is included to aid this process:
- Business Architecture Model Review
- Attachment A - Summary of key BAM Changes – Spreadsheet summarising the key changes to the BAM, the associated driver, and an Evolve Portal link to each amended or new diagram
- Attachment B - Release 2.0 BAM Review Feedback Form to enable comments and questions on the updated BAM to be submitted
If you wish to provide feedback on the Release 2.0 content BAM changes, along with any other specific comments you may have on the BAM content, please complete the attached Appendix B – BAM review response form and submit to SECAS@gemserv.com by Friday 18th May 2018.
When reviewing the BAM changes, if it prompts addition comments on the Release 2.0 BAD changes, do let us know. The draft BAD, as issued for review previously, is available here.
Please note that in addition to the Release 2.0 changes, ongoing general improvements to the look and feel of the model are being actioned based on feedback received.
Following the review period, all comments will be collated and reviewed with revisions drafted, as required. The updated BAM, post industry review, will then be submitted to the TABASC for discussion and approval. Following TABASC approval of the changes, the BAM changes in the draft model will then be published when Release 2.0 goes live later this year.
