Functions

A Function is an activitiy carried out in an organisation.  Examples of Functions include:

  • Payroll

  • Financial Reporting

  • Warehousing

  • Information Management

Functions can be related to Teams and Applications.  A Team is said to "carry out" a Function while a Function "uses" an Application to complete the task.

What are Functions For?

Functions help you understand the context of applications and infrastructure.  With the full hierarchy from Teams down to Infrastructure modelled you'll be able to see which people are serviced by every application or piece of infrastructure.  This is useful in planning migrations or showing back costs.
