Large scale measurement systems are hard to build and to maintain. In this paper we propose an architecture blueprint for a federalist Enterprise Measurement Infrastructure (EMI) which helps to address these typical weaknesses of centralistic measurement systems. The EMI is based on the ideas of Service Oriented Measurements. We combined these with modern ideas from the area of Enterprise Application Integration and extended the ISO 15939 data flow to allow a more flexible and elegant solution. The current prototypes of EMI implementations and field studies prove the benefits of the architecture blueprint over existing solutions. We strongly belief that the EMI can help to build better, extendible, and maintainable measurement systems which are integrated and aligned with modern business needs.
