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]

Continuous Engineering (CE) investigates fundamentals and basic principles of evolution in IT-engineering processes. Continuous Software Engineering (CSE) applies these principles in the context of software engineering and develops methodologies, concepts and techniques for evolvable software systems. Continuous business engineering (CBE) is closely related to principles of CE and the research field of CSE. The main purpose of this position paper is to extend earlier work on CBE by integrating the concept of capabilities. The paper describes the scope of CBE research, investigates connections to other research fields and discusses approaches in the field of CBE for aligning software architecture, capabilities and business strategy.

Abstract [en]

Modelling methods provide structured guidance for performing complex modelling tasks including procedures to be performed, concepts to focus on, visual representations, tools and cooperation principles. Development of methods is an expensive process which usually involves many stakeholders and results in various method iterations. This paper aims at contributing to the field of method improvement by proposing a balanced scorecard based approach and 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 (1) a description of the process for developing a scorecard for method improvement, (2) the scorecard as such (as a tool) for improving a specific method, and (3) experiences from applying the scorecard in industrial settings.

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.

Abstract [en]

The organizational structures of public and local administration depend on many bureaucratic aspects. Emergencies and political factors instead of rational motivations related to knowledge, competences and profiles often influence the allocation of people in offices. In most cases, such situations generate dissatisfactions, low productivity and become gangrenous. The objective of this work is applying competence management, skill gap analysis and a study of the existing organizational structures to point out the functional unit with the most critical situation in terms of allocated employees in order to suggest the people to involve in learning programmes according to the complex laws, internal regulation for the staff management and trade-union influences. In fact, the proposed approach identifies the real gaps that create inefficiencies and suggests the employees to engage in learning activities by focusing exactly on what the organizations need with respect to what the employees have. It happens by elaborating a priority scale on the base of existing hierarchies, relationships, logistic constraints and other aspects with the aim, above all, of enhancing the identified unit and the local administration itself.

Abstract [en]

In many application areas, vendors offer to their clients combinations of software products and services, which can be considered as software-service bundles. The clients select a combination of software product and associated service best suited to their individual requirements and circumstances. The bundle usually has to be configured by the vendor to fit the specific situation of the client. When circumstances change, the software-service bundle or its configuration need adaptation. The article proposes a method helping clients to select the most appropriate combination or configuration. The method is based on information sharing between the vendor and client and also supports the continuous improvement of the solution in response to changing circumstances. The method applies principles and techniques of the Capability Driven Development to specify performance objectives and contextual factors affecting delivery of a software-service bundle. Application of the method is shown using an illustrative case of a data processing service from utility industries.

Abstract [en]

In times of dynamic markets, enterprises have to be agile to be able to quickly react to market influences. Due to the increasing digitization of products, the enterprise IT often is affected when business models change. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) targets a holistic view of the enterprise’ IT and their relations to the business. However, Enterprise Architectures (EA) are complex structures consisting of many layers, artifacts and relationships between them. Thus, analyzing EA is a very complex task for stakeholders. Visualizations are common vehicles to support analysis. However, in practice visualization capabilities lack flexibility and interactivity. A solution to improve the support of stakeholders in analyzing EAs might be the application of visual analytics. Starting from a systematic literature review, this article investigates the features of visual analytics relevant for the context of EAM.
