A business actor is defined as an entity that performs behaviour in an organisation such as business processes or functions.

Typically, a business actor performs the behaviour assigned to one or more business roles. It's important to separate the actor from the role because a business actor can perform more than one business role, and a business role can be performed by more than one business actor.

Business actors are humans, departments, and business units. They may be individuals or groups.

The name of a business actor should preferably be a noun.
