Advanced Enterprise Modeling
Special Issue
The pace of change in business constantly accelerates, whereas the context
for this change is becoming more complex. Today’s business environments
entail cooperation with different organizations, rapidly changing business
activities and processes, and an intensive competitive landscape.
Enterprises need therefore the capability to respond quickly and
efficiently to these challenges, and even to leverage them to competitive
advantage. In this effort, they steadily transform to become dynamic,
proactive, connected, adaptive, or globally-integrated organizations.
Service orientation and cloud computing are the two enterprise-scale
technologies showing high potential and promise in tackling continuous IT
The EM research discipline aims to solve business-IT alignment in a
holistic manner by providing the techniques, languages, tools and best
practices for using models to represent organizational knowledge and
information systems from different perspectives. Described complex business
and technology conditions upraise the role of Enterprise Modeling (EM) in
its responsibility in reaching the alignment. The quality attributes such
as agility, sensitivity, responsiveness, adaptability, autonomy and
interoperability are emerging as the norms for advanced enterprise models.
Solving them will allow all components of an enterprise to operate together
in the cooperative manner for the purpose of maximizing overall benefit to
the enterprise.
The special issue aims to explore the enabling factors in EM to support the
business-IT alignment in modern enterprises. It serves as a forum for
researchers and practitioners to disseminate high-quality original research
as well as case-studies of real-world enterprises in a leading
international journal. Topics of interest include but are not limited to
business applications in the areas:
* Agile EM
* Use of EM in different organisational and technical contexts
* Adaptability in EM
