Abstract [en]

The benefits of enterprise modeling (EM) and its contribution to organizational tasks are largely undisputed in business and information systems engineering. EM as a discipline has been around for several decades but is typically performed by a limited number of people in organizations with an affinity to modeling. What is captured in models is only a fragment of what ought to be captured. Thus, this research note argues that EM is far from its maximum potential. Many people develop some kind of model in their local practice without thinking about it consciously. Exploiting the potential of this “grass roots modeling” could lead to groundbreaking innovations. The aim is to investigate integration of the established practices of modeling with local practices of creating and using model-like artifacts of relevance for the overall organization. The paper develops a vision for extending the reach of EM, identifies research areas contributing to the vision and proposes elements of a future research agenda.

Abstract [en]

Modeling methods have been proven to provide beneficial instrumental support for different modeling tasks during information system analysis and design. However, methods are a complex phenomenon that include constructs such as procedural guidelines, concepts to focus on, visual representations and cooperation principles. In general, method development is an expensive task that usually involves many stakeholders and results in various method iterations. Since methods and method development are complex in nature, there is a need for a well-structured and resource-efficient approach for method improvement. This paper aims to contribute to the field of method improvement by proposing a balanced scorecard-based approach and by reporting on experiences from developing and using it in the context of a method for information demand analysis. The main contributions of the paper are as follows: (1) It provides a description of the process for developing a scorecard for method improvement; (2) it shows how the scorecard as such can be used as a tool for improving a specific method; and (3) it discusses experiences from applying the scorecard in industrial settings.

Abstract [en]

The Internet of Things (IoT), a global Internet-based system of computing devices and machines, is one of the most significant trends in the information technology area. An accepted unified communication approach would be a prerequisite for its mass adoption. Semantic technologies (Semantic Web) have been advocated as enablers of unified communication. However, while there are particular advancements in research on application of Semantic Web in the IoT domain, the dynamic and complex nature of the IoT often requires case specific solutions hard to be applied widely. In the present survey, the semantic technology challenges in the IoT domain are amalgamated to provide background for further studies in the use of semantic technologies in the IoT.

Abstract [en]

Digital innovation (DI), Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber-physical Systems (CPS) offer new opportunities for enterprises but also cause new challenges for Enterprise Architecture Management. Based on an industrial case from power garden products illustrating potentials and challenges of DI and IoT, this paper investigates the integration of product-IT into enterprise architectures. Product-IT includes the embedded IT-systems in physical products and services / components for operations, maintenance or evaluation purposes. The paper investigates problems in product-IT and enterprise-IT integration and challenges for the field of EAM. The main contributions of the paper are (1) to position the area of product-IT in the field of EAM, and (2) to identify challenges from real-world cases regarding integration of product-IT into EA.

Abstract [en]

Digital signage in general refers to the provision of content (advertisements, news, assistance) on electronic scoreboards or large displays in places where many people are present or passing by. The more this content is expected to be tailored for specific user groups, the more context information is required, like, e.g., the preferences or profiles of target users or user groups. The ideal digital signage solution would be able to provide individualized content for the audience consuming the information at any time: if only one person is present, the content would be personalized for this person; if a group of persons is present the demand of all should be met. Based on a digital signage solution for elevator doors, the paper investigates the intersecting of preferences as a contribution to determine the most relevant content for a group of users. This intersection of preferences serves as a basis for new business models for interactive elevator digital signage. The main contributions of the paper are (1) an industrial case of digital business model innovation motivating contextual digital signage, (2) a technical approach for intersecting personal preferences, and (3) a methodical approach for digital business model innovation.

Abstract [en]

Individuals need a variety of information when performing their personal processes. However, companies typically know little about the underlying individual demand patterns in these processes. Conceptualizing information demand patterns of individuals is expected to allow for using these as foundation to extend the traditional internal information logistic perspective of companies. Digital options could then be used to align individual and organizational information leading not only to new product and service offers, but also to new work structures in organizations. Thus, we extend prior literature regarding business process management and information logistics by highlighting how information demand patterns (IDP) have to be adapted to individual processes. Our exploratory approach is to demonstrate conceptually the conditions and implications of individual IDPs.

Abstract [en]

Social networks, smart portable devices, Internet of Things (IoT) on base of technologies like analytics for big data and cloud services are emerging to support flexible connected products and agile services as the new wave of digital transformation. Biological metaphors of living and adaptable ecosystems with service-oriented enterprise architectures provide the foundation for self-optimizing and resilient run-time environments for intelligent business services and related distributed information systems. We are extending Enterprise Architecture (EA) with mechanisms for flexible adaptation and evolution of information systems having distributed IoT and other micro-granular digital architecture to support next digitization products, services, and processes. Our aim is to support flexibility and agile transformation for both IT and business capabilities through adaptive digital enterprise architectures. The present research paper investigates additionally decision mechanisms in the context of multi-perspective explorations of enterprise services and Internet of Things architectures by extending original enterprise architecture reference models with state of art elements for architectural engineering and digitization.
