The Banking Industry Architecture Network (BIAN) and The Open Group are to integrate their frameworks for use in the banking industry.

They say that there are clear synergies in using BIAN’s Service Landscape in combination with the Open Group standard, TOGAF. When applying TOGAF, the BIAN content will speed up the work by providing banking-specific architecture content. On the flip side, TOGAF provides a structured approach and adds value to the BIAN deliverables for the project approach and capability to perform.

Allen Brown, CEO, The Open Group, comments: “Having identified a need within our member base for more thorough standards specifically for banking, we approached BIAN to work together. Its deep banking industry expertise complements our industry-independent approach to open standards. Together, we have a rapid and transformative ability to deliver SOA frameworks to global banks and look forward to working with BIAN in the future.”
