The Business Architecture Guild, in cooperation with participating tool vendors, is making downloadable versions of the Industry Reference Models available to authorized members in tool native versions. In addition to obtaining the Reference Models through the Guild Store, members can also get the Reference Models directly from the participating vendors that have integrated them into their tools.
Vendors are licensed to distribute integrated, as-is versions of the Guild reference models. Members are required to agree to the terms of the License Agreement for Downloadable Goods in order to have full access to the Reference Models within the tools. Authorized users can then modify the models once onsite, in their possession.
The program enables:
"Authorized users” of the reference models include any Guild member who has agreed to the terms of the license agreement and non-members who have paid the appropriate fees for the reference models in the Guild store. Reference models are available to members at no charge and there are no maintenance fees. To help organizations and teams select appropriate tools from vendors, our members created the Business Architecture Tool Evaluator™, which provides business architecture practitioners and stakeholders with an objective means of assessing, scoring, and selecting a tool to support their business architecture practice. The tool is available to download from our Online Store.
