The integrated model maps each business function to its responsible organization unit. This allows direct navigation among the organization, core process and system views, since all three views converge on the business function.

The business function is the bottom link in the company responsibility chain. There is a direct linkage from company goals down through the organizational hierarchy to the work performed in the bottom-level business function. This allows the integrated model to be used as a roadmap to determine which parts of the business will be impacted by a shift in company goals or business strategy.
