1. Introduction

The content metamodel defines a set of entities that allow architectural concepts to be captured, stored, filtered, queried, and represented in a way that supports consistency, completeness, and traceability. The content framework is divided into several important categories, like Architecture Principles, Vision, and Requirements, intended to capture the surrounding context of formal architecture models, including general Architecture Principles. 

At the same time, it shows that Information Systems Architecture entities capture architecture models of IT systems, looking at applications and data like the TOGAF Architecture Development Method (ADM). Lastly, Architecture Realization entities capture change roadmaps showing the transition between architecture states and binding statements used to steer and govern the implementation of the architecture.

2. What is Business Architecture

A larger view of a system is referred to as "business architecture." It defines the nature of the relationship between its purpose, core functions, operative elements, and critical activities. A combination of independent and integrated platforms known as business architecture creates a multifaceted framework. Each platform is a system dimension that reflects a separate mode of behavior with a set of pre-defined performance metrics and requirements.
