    I am currently doing Enterprise data Modelling for existing source system using TM Forum SID information Framework.
    So something I experienced while while working on Finance systems or Cash managemet Systems are that the Information framework is not currently matured enough to accomadate most of the usecases. So I decided to extend the framework for the organization. Below is the list of Extended BEs.

    It would be really helpful if you can verify if this is acceptable or correct me and show me the right path to continue this modeling journey.
