OBASHI® paper version manual

Publisher Description

“Seeing the big picture” is vital to making the right strategic decisions.

Being able to “join the dots” and understand how your assets interact in order to get more out of them is key for operational decision-makers.

OBASHI allows you to do both.

You can create a dynamic map of how your organisation works, then identify and value how data flows between your business assets.

OBASHI will make things clearer and help you make better decisions because it’s been designed, specifically, to help people improve how their organizations perform.

Whether your challenge is reducing costs, driving competitive advantage, or both, then you need to think OBASHI.

OBASHI Description

The methodology itself is now applicable in every enterprise where there is flow of data The OBASHI name is an acronym of the following words:

  • O – Ownership – the owner of the process,
  • B – Business Process – the business process,
  • A – Application – the application supporting the business process,
  • S – System – the operating system on which the application works,
  • H – Hardware – from the hardware on which the operating system was installed,
  • I – Infrastracture – from a network infrastructure that allows to transmit the information.


These 6 areas are the basis for creating a B&IT ( Business & IT ) diagram that enables the organization to visualize how elements within these layers are related to each other. This is done by placing the elements: process owner, business process, application, operating system, hardware and network infrastructure from top to bottom. This is shows which elements below are used by the elements above. In this way we can see that, for example, Vice President is responsible for the Marketing process, using applications such as CRM, on the Marketing server, using Switch and Router.


The second diagram called Dataflow Analysis View (DAV for short) allows to visualize, how the data flows through the organization including OBASHI elements. . It is this view which allows us to not only track how data flows through our organization but to also understand how quickly we are able to fulfil the customer’s order using the existing infrastructure.
