The business capability map has gained close attention from
organizations as an essential tool for communication between business
and IT. However, its integration with the enterprise data model is hampered
by semantic issues that complicate stakeholder communication.
This study, based on an analysis of TOGAF, presents a refined metamodel
to resolve these issues and ensure alignment between the business
capability map and the enterprise data model. The utility of the metamodel
was demonstrated through a case study of Dutch energy system
operators. The findings not only enhance model consistency and stakeholder
communication but also provide a foundation for future research,
suggesting the integration of additional elements into the metamodel to
broaden its scope and utility.
