There is a more and more common understanding, that not the ownership of 
IT resources but their management is the foundation for sustainable 
competitive advantage . According to Ross et al., smart companies define 
how they (will) do business (using an operating model) and design the 
processes and infrastructure critical to their current and future 
operations (using an enterprise architecture).

The management of information technology resources should be done with 
the application of engineering principles, called enterprise 
engineering. Enterprise Engineering allows deriving the Enterprise 
Architecture from the enterprise goals and strategy and aligning it with 
the enterprise resources, but it may also be supported by the Enterprise 
Architecture if the latter is documented. Enterprise architecture aims 
(i) to understand the interactions and all kind of articulations between 
business and information technology, (ii) to define how to align 
business components and IT components, as well as business strategy and 
IT strategy, and more particularly (iii) to develop and support a common 
understanding and sharing of those purposes of interest. Enterprise 
architecture is used to map the enterprise goal and strategy to the 
enterprise’s resources (actors, assets, IT supports) and to take into 
account the evolution of this mapping. It also provides documentation on 
the assignment of enterprise resources to the enterprise goals and 
strategy. To this end, advantageous patterns (best practices) can be 
reused and alternative design solutions can be compared. Furthermore, 
enterprise architecture may be checked for compliance with laws, 
regulatory rules etc. Finally, enterprise architecture facilitates the 
measurement the performance and efficiency of the resources used.

There are different paradigms for creating enterprise architecture. The 
most important regarding the purpose of this workshop is to encapsulate 
the functionalities provided by IT resources as services. By this means, 
it is possible to clearly describe the contributions of IT resources 
both in terms of functionality and quality and to define a 
service-oriented enterprise architecture. Service-oriented enterprise 
architecture easily integrates wide-spread technological approaches such 
as SOA or emerging ones as the cloud computing because they also use 
service as structuring paradigm. Service-oriented enterprise engineering 
further develops the enterprise engineering approach selecting service 
as governing paradigm. The enterprise goals and strategies are mapped to 
a service-oriented enterprise architecture.

Service-oriented enterprise architecture differentiates four layers of 
services. Thus, its scope is much broader than the scope of the 
service-oriented architecture (SOA) and also includes services not 
accessible through software such as business and infrastructure 
services. Services of different layers may be interconnected in service 
(value) nets to provide higher level services.
1. Business services are services, which directly support business 
processes. Business processes can also be developed dynamically 
(on-the-fly) using business services which are available in a repository 
for a given business domain. An example is call-centre services provided 
by an external service provider.
2. Software services exist as two types: (i) human-oriented 
applications, which are provided as Software as a Service, (ii) 
application services which are part of so-called 
Service-Oriented-Architectures  that are a popular paradigm for creating 
enterprise software .
3. Platform Services provide support of the development of applications. 
They provide services for the execution of applications, middleware 
stacks, web servers etc.
4. Infrastructure services are more hardware-flavoured services, which 
are provided using computers. They may have a human addressee but 
contain many infrastructure services such as providing computing power, 
storage etc. They are an important topic in management and practice 
collections such as ITILV3  or standards such as ISO/IEC 20000 have 
gained a high popularity.

The goal of the workshop is to develop concepts and methods to assist 
the engineering and the management of service-oriented enterprise 
architectures and the software systems supporting them. Especially three 
themes of research shall be pursued:
1. Alignment of the enterprise goals and strategies with the 
service-oriented enterprise architecture
2. Design of the service-oriented enterprise architecture
3. Mapping of service-oriented enterprise architecture to enterprise 

During the workshop we will discuss the following topics:

1. Alignment of the enterprise goals and strategy with the 
service-oriented enterprise architecture
- Which interdependencies exist between services and business strategy?
- Which concepts and methods are necessary to align services with the 
business strategy?
- Which new potentials to reengineer business processes are created by 
- How are non-functional requirements derived from enterprise goals and 
- How are services aligned with non-functional requirements?
- How are services aligned with compliance requirements?
- Are the compliance and governance requirements enforced using 
service-oriented enterprise architectures?

2. Design of service-oriented enterprise architecture
- How are business, software, platform and infrastructure services defined?
- How are business services assigned to business processes?
- How are business services assigned to non-functional requirements?
- How are service (value) nets -consisting of business, software, 
platform and infrastructure services- created?
- How does service-oriented enterprise architecture, interrelate with 
cloud computing?
- How do meta-services differentiate for business, software, platform 
and infrastructure services?
- How are appropriate meta-services designed?
- Which phases do the lifecycle of business, software, platform and 
infrastructure services contain?
- How can the fulfilment of non-functional requirements be monitored?
- Which benchmarks and key performance indicators should be applied to 
- Which approaches exist for the continual improvement of services?

3. Mapping of service-oriented enterprise architecture to enterprise 
- Which resources are relevant for Service-oriented Enterprise Architecture?
- How are services mapped to enterprise resources?
- Which approaches exist to map services to resources?
- Which information system architectures are adequate for services?
- How can non-functional requirements be mapped to capacity planning of 

The 2011 SoEA4EE workshop will be organised in collaboration with the 
TEAR workshop.  The SoEA4EE 2011 workshop will be held on the 30th of 
August, while the TEAR workshop will be held on the 29th of August. The 
organisers of both workshops explicitly invite visitors to visit both 
workshops, in order to further the integration between the two communities.

Where the TEAR workshop focuses on EA in general, the SoEA4EE workshop 
focuses on the role of the service oriented paradigm in the context of EA.

Authors of papers on topics (that were included in past TEAR 
call-for-papers) such as:
- Integrating service oriented and legacy architectures,
- Service design on application and business levels,
- Service orientation as EA design paradigm,
- Service oriented architecture (SOA) and EA,
are invited to submit these papers to the SoEA4EE workshop instead of TEAR.

Authors of papers dealing with Enterprise Architecture without any link 
to service orientation in its widest sense are invited to submit these 
papers to TEAR instead of SoEA4EE.

Full papers (8-10 pages in the IEEE-CS format) describing mature results 
are sought. In addition, short papers (4 pages in the IEEE-CS format) 
may be submitted to facilitate discussion of recent research results and 
ongoing projects. The paper selection will be based upon the relevance 
of a paper to the main topics, as well as upon its quality and potential 
to generate relevant discussion. All contributions will be peer reviewed 
based on the complete version, being full or short.

All papers published in the EDOC 2011 workshop proceedings must be in 
the IEEE Computer Society format 
(http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting). It is strongly 
recommended that all papers are already in this format when they are 
first submitted to workshops. This gives precise picture of the paper 
length and avoids rework if the paper is accepted.

Please submit your paper to nurcan at univ-paris1.fr

At least one author of each accepted workshop paper will have to 
register for the whole EDOC 2011 conference and attend the workshop to 
present the paper. Analogously to previous years, there will be no 
workshop-only registration at EDOC 2011. If a paper is not presented in 
the workshop, it will be removed from the workshop proceedings published 
in the IEEE Xplore digital library.

The SoEA4EE workshop has been a full day workshop in conjunction with 
EDOC’09 in New Zealand and with EDOC’10 in Brasil.

The link for the proceedings of EDOC 2009 workshops is:

The link for the proceedings of EDOC 2010 workshops is: 

All papers will be published in the workshop wiki (www.soea4ee.org) 
before the workshop, so that everybody can learn about the problems that 
are important for other participants. The workshop will consist of long 
and short paper presentations, brainstorming sessions and discussions. A 
workshop report will be created collaboratively using the workshop wiki.
