Definition: 

Something an enterprise does, or needs to do, in order to achieve its objectives.

A Business Function delivers added value from a business point of view. It is delivered by bringing together people, processes and technology (resources), for a specific business purpose.

Business Functions answer in a generic sense "What business purpose does this Business Service or Process Step serve?" Through identifying the Business Function associated with each Business Service or Process Step it increases the documentation of the use of the associated Business Services and Process Steps, to enable future reuse.

Example: 
A Business Function may be defined directly with descriptive text and/or through reference to an existing catalogue of Business Functions.
