Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Enterprise Architecture (EA) development is considered as consisting of modelling and engineering of enterprises. In both approaches, subject of considerations can be presented as including the following layers: business, information, application and infrastructure. Each of the layers is modelled and constructed in different ways. The paper focuses on the business organization analytics for the EA development. The organizational analytics is understood as business structure, roles, and processes. In general, the EA developers mostly presuppose the process-oriented modelling, however, in this paper, the goal is the business structure models implementations for business architecture development. The proposed approach of business architecture modelling is visualized by the example of non-formal education architecture development.

KEYWORDS: business structure, business architecture, ArchiMate, SysML, BPMN, CMMN, DMN, non-formal education.
