    Maintaining a high quality enterprise architecture (EA) model that is up-to-date and consistent is a difficult but crucial task. The reasons for this difficulty are the size and complexity of EA models, frequent changes in the architecture and the challenge of collecting EA data from different stakeholders in large organizations. In our research project Living IT-Landscape Models we are working to... View full abstract»

    Today, enterprises are confronted with a continuously increasing amount of data. Examples of such data include office files, e-mails, process descriptions, and data from process-aware information systems. This data overload makes it difficult for knowledge-workers to identify the information they need to perform their tasks in the best possible way. Particularly challenging is the alignment of pro...

    One of the difficult challenges in inter-enterprise computing is aligning business transactions and technical management of distributed transactions, especially in breach situations. We propose and analyse a two-level business transaction management framework that allows injection of business level concerns to the control processes of inter-enterprise transactions. The two levels are associated wi... View full abstract»

    The increasing availability of event data recorded by information systems, electronic devices, web services and sensor networks provides detailed information about the actual processes in systems and organizations. Process mining techniques can use such event data to discover processes and check the conformance of process models. For conformance checking, we need to analyze whether the observed be...

    Two orchestrated processes interacting with each other have to maintain their own states. Messages are used to synchronize states between orchestrated processes. Server crash and network failure may result in loss of messages and therefore result in a state change performed by only one party. Thus, the states of the parties are no longer synchronized, resulting in state inconsistencies and in wors... View full abstract»

    The software systems running in an enterprise consist of countless components, having complex dependencies, are hosted on physical or virtualized environments, and are scattered across the technical infrastructure of an enterprise, ranging from on-premise data centers up to public cloud deployments. The resulting topology of the current IT landscape of an enterprise is often extremely complex. We ... View full abstract»

    This paper deals with the problem, coming from an industrial context, of ontology transformations. EADS, as a major aircraft manufacturer faces the problem of integrating works of experts from different domains using different notations. Addressing this Domain-Specific Language (DSL) problem, we previously developed a solution based on OWL2 ontologies for the integration of multiple domains at the... View full abstract»

    Service composition has been acknowledged as a promising approach to create new (composite) services that are capable of supporting multiple needs of service users. Service composition has been used quite extensively to support complex but relatively stable enterprise processes. More recently, service composition is also being applied to support the personalization of services delivered to human e... View full abstract»

    Logistics network design is a strategic issue for nearly all companies. In the past, a logistics network once established was used for several periods. However, recent years have seen a rapidly changing economic environment. Trends in markets, shifts of customer clusters, changes of cost structures, and increasing competition are some of the aspects compelling companies to periodically redesign th... View full abstract»

    In a service-oriented architecture, adaptive and evolvable applications should be able to select, configure and compose different existing application services to deal with the changes which can arise from runtime contextual changes or the change of user requirements and preferences. To support this, hybrid service composition approaches have been proposed, in which the core of application logic, ... View full abstract»

    Distributed systems like crisis management are subject to the dissemination of a huge volume of heterogeneous events, ranging from low level network data to high level crisis management intelligence, depending on the role of the rescue teams involved. In such systems, Complex Event Processing (CEP) has emerged as a solution to detect and react (in real-time) to complex events, which are correlatio... View full abstract»
