A key initial step in the development of the National ITS Architecture for Australia is to build the conceptual ITS Business Architecture platform on which subsequent and more detailed architectural models can be built.

The ITS Business Architecture is often considered a reference architecture. The proposed ITS Business Architecture described in this report is intended to allow transport agencies and ITS–related organisations to describe and develop ITS solutions using a consistent approach and terminology. Subsequent projects will define the ITS Information Systems Architecture models.

This report outlines the business and organisational context for ITS in Australia, and the reference or conceptual models providing a high level view of ITS business processes/functions and services.

The proposed Australian National ITS Architecture is intended to allow transport agencies and ITS–related organisations describe and develop ITS solutions using a consistent terminology and content.

This document should be read with the Austroads report National IT Architecture: Context and Vision(AP-R467-14).
