Enterprise Modeling

Definition - What does Enterprise Modeling mean?

Enterprise modeling is a term for the modeling of various processes, infrastructures, asset groups, or other elements of a business or organization. Enterprise modeling helps leaders to visualize what is going on within a business and how to make changes. Early forms of enterprise modeling helped analysts to fix hardware and deal with other sorts of troubleshooting. With the growing complexity of business IT infrastructures, enterprise modeling is becoming increasingly useful.

Techopedia explains Enterprise Modeling

Various kinds of enterprise modeling help analysts or others to accomplish different tasks. Business process modeling gives professionals a bird’s eye view of a particular business process in order to help with change management. Data modeling helps database administrators and others to more efficiently plan methodology for the use, storage and recall of data, one of a contemporary business’s largest assets. Another kind enterprise modeling is function or activity modeling, which can help provide a visual demonstration of work flow.

A major part of the utility of enterprise modeling is related to the value of visuals in planning. By effectively representing structures, processes or hierarchies visually, planners can get much better information about a business and what changes would look like. Enterprise modeling software helps by automating a lot of what would otherwise have to be done manually to work up detailed and sophisticated models of complex business processes such as supply chains.
