CoBI - IEEE International Workshop on
Capability-oriented Business Informatics
(Workshop site: http://cobi2014.blogs.dsv.su.se)
in association with the 16th IEEE Conference on Business Informatics
(IEEE CBI 2014 - http://cbi2014.unige.ch/)

Workshop Call
The business environments of today are changing rapidly, entailing complex
and dynamic organisational constellations. Enterprises operating in these
conditions need to have the capability to deliver their services in a
variety of business contexts with sustainable quality and moreover to
leverage them to competitive advantage.
Capability is gaining presence in the context of business-IT alignment, in
the specification and design of services using business planning as the
baseline, in Enterprise Architecture, and in Service Oriented Architecture.
However, the knowledge, role and the usage of enterprise capabilities in
the named disciplines in terms of people competencies and the capacity of
the resources, are unclear and open to different interpretations. How to
utilize "capability" knowledge in enterprise modelling and architectures as
a foundation for sustainable Information System planning and management in
the presence of varying social and business contexts is likely to yield
substantial results in both research and practice in years to come.
We encourage the original research contributions exploring the challenges
and solutions related to the meaning and usage of capability in Business
Informatics, as well as industrial case studies illustrating the use of
this notion. The topics are among but not limited to:

* The role of capability-based modeling for improving Enterprise Modeling
* Capability driven-based methods for Business Process Engineering
* Capabilities for service innovation
* Capability-driven service composition
* Capability-driven cloud management
* Technology support for capability-based tools in Business IT
* The effects of capability on organizational transformation
* Management issues related to capability
* Transferring capability knowledge from other domains to IS engineering
* Case studies in capability use

CoBI 2014 is the one-day workshop organized in conjunction with the 16th
IEEE Conference on Business Informatics  in Geneva, Switzerland.
