10: Enterprise Modeling

Track Description


The purpose of this track is to focus on a core topic in business and information systems en- gineering research. Enterprise modeling is an established approach for the conceptual rep- resentation, design, implementation and analysis of information systems and has gained much attention in academia as well as in industry.

Enterprise modeling is today of primary importance to develop, analyze and deploy infor- mation systems that operate in today’s user-driven world with massive amounts of ex- changed information. It contributes with the conceptualization, implementation, and use of machine processable languages to facilitate the interaction with complex business and tech- nological scenarios, engage in knowledge management and support organizational engineer- ing. In addition, the development of reference models for selected domains, the design of generic models for enterprise architecture management, and the development of modeling tools are investigated.

In this track the discussion shall be fostered both on the foundations and applications in en- terprise modeling, as well as on the model-based development and evolution of enterprise- wide IS from a conceptual / business perspective. For the description of innovative and rigor- ously elaborated research results a wide variety of research methodologies are welcomed including but not limited to design science research, mathematical modeling, simulation, case studies, as well as empirical approaches.
