UML - Business Use Case Question 

 Hello,

Are external systems not depicted in business use case diagrams?  I'm asking b/c I'm looking at an example where the external system is in the system use case package and role map, but not the business use case.

Thanks

Re: UML - Business Use Case Question 

Can you clarify whether or not you make a distinction between a "use case" and a "business use case?"

Yes, there is a distinction b/w business and system use cases.  I'm wondering if external systems not depicted in business use case diagrams.

Re: UML - Business Use Case Question 

 An actor that interacts with a use case (business or technical) can be a user role or another system. The system can be one in your organisation or outside the organisation. The point is it isn't the system (manual, computer based or mixed) you are defining.

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
