BiSL Foundation


Course Description:
With the complexity of today’s business environment, demand for quick market response is more essential than ever before. Organizations cannot function with suboptimal IT support. IT can only act as an enabler for business strategies when there is a close fit. For an effective alignment of business processes with IT, business management has the final responsibility to establish a bridge and close any gaps. Business Information Services Library (BiSL) provides a public domain standard approach for bridging the business-IT gap. To be most effective in aligning business process with IT, business management must act on strategic, tactical and operational levels. The BiSL process model provides insight into all of the business information management processes within their field of operations and interdependencies with the various processes in business and IT (ITIL and ASL). BiSL offers a starting point for process improvement providing best practices and uniform terminology.
