Helps join the dots of how data flows between your people, process and technology • OBASHI views business resources and IT assets as • providers of data • consumers of data • or the conduit through which the data can flow. • This allows you to diagrammatically represent how data flows across the organisation. • These are called Data flow Analysis Views (DAVs) • DAVs provide another common, intuitive and easily-understood diagram of how data flows between your people, process and technology.
