    With numerous enterprise architecture management (EAM) methodologies, frameworks, and tools, there are still no universally excepted standard on what Enterprise Architecture (EA) really means to practicing architects. Traditionally practitioners concentrated on specific aspects of EA, such as tools, repositories, components and frameworks. However, little attention was given to the architect, whic...

    Today, Enterprises act in an increasingly interconnected world and in different kinds of collaborative networks. They are part of business ecosystems in which they interact with their customers, partners and competitors. The processes of analyzing and planning the intertwinement of business and IT architecture within enterprises has been successfully supported by enterprise architecture management...

    Enterprise Architecture (EA) management is a well-defined practice for conducting coherent analysis, design, planning, and implementation for the successful execution of business strategy. In practice many organizations are struggling with EA frameworks since the processes to manage the EA are not adequately supported. In this paper we examine Adaptive Case Management (ACM) as an emerging paradigm... View full abstract»

    Analysis and planning of Enterprise Architectures (EA) is a complex task for stakeholders. The change of one architecture element has impact on multiple other elements because of manifold relationships and interactions between them. The interactive cockpit approach presented in this paper supports stakeholders planning and analyzing EAs and to tackle the intrinsic complexity. This approach supplie... View full abstract»

    Enterprise Architecture (EA) modeling languages describe an enterprise architecture holistically. Therefore, they show an enterprise's business products and services, and how these are realized by IT infrastructure and applications. However, EA modeling languages lack the capability of capturing rationalization information behind these models in terms of selection criteria, alternatives etc. Our e... View full abstract»

    Companies today interact in an increasingly competitive environment and seek to leverage the potentials of IT for generating new business models and for changing existing ones. For these business models, companies have to align the respective business and IT architectures. This task can be supported by using enterprise architecture management. In this paper, we first analyze the potentials for int... View full abstract»

    To stay competitive, enterprises must respond to changes as effectively and efficiently as possible and ensure the employed courses of action, whether in response to change or even to optimize business as usual, fall within the purview of internal and external directives. Often, the traceability from change drivers that led to specific directives being applied to actual business rules implementing... View full abstract»

    Enterprise Architecture Management relies on information from different management levels, functional areas and for example in case of holdings or mergers from different organizations. This results in a variety of tools, models, and model schemata that cover EAM aspects. At the same time, there is a desire for interchangeability and reuse of EA models. Here, model transformation is a promising app... View full abstract»

    Today's Enterprises exist in highly dynamic environment. While enterprise-architecture (EA) based models help in holistic treatment of enterprise aspects, they are static in nature and do not represent the complex dynamic behavior of enterprise as it evolves over time. Instead of relying on guideline for simulating EA models as in other approaches, we propose a comprehensive metamodel of system dy... View full abstract»

  • Towards a Unified and Modular Approach for Visual Analysis of Enterprise Models

    From the point of view of an enterprise architect, the visual analysis of the structure of an Enterprise Model can provide powerful insights and facilitate various analysis tasks. However, analysis methods and visualizations that offer the most valuable results usually depend on the concepts found on the Enterprise Metamodel, and are subjected to a concrete EA modeling tool. In this paper we argue... View full abstract»

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (298 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    In this paper, we first describe the tension between type-safety and flexibility in EA analysis tools. We then present a web-based system that combines the benefits of static typing with the flexibility of a dynamic and collaborative meta-modeling platform. In particular, we describe the underlying meta-model, the syntax and semantics of the expression language, and derive an associated type syste... View full abstract»

    At the workshop, we see the results of some of the foremost researchers for technology that is aimed not at replacing workers, but augmenting knowledge workers, striving to avoid the urge to automate, but instead to facilitate. The focus is more on goals that behave like objectives, not defining the work, but instead inspiring the worker to figure out the best course given that particular unique s... View full abstract»

    Non-traditional scenarios for Business Process Management (BPM) are often knowledge-intensive and driven by user decisions making it difficult to specify them into a set of activities with precedence relations at design-time. Adaptive Case Management (ACM) is gaining interest among researchers and practitioners as an emerging paradigm to master situations in which adaptions have to be made at run-... View full abstract»
