2016 (English)In: Emerging Trends in the Evolution of Service-Oriented and Enterprise Architectures / [ed] Eman El-Sheikh, Alfred Zimmermann, Lakhmi C. Jain, Springer, 2016, Vol. 111, 151-177 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Technological advances, changes in regulations and increasing globalization of the economy demand high adaptability from enterprises in many areas. Enterprise Architecture Management provides organizations with an integrated view enabling such adaptability. In this respect, development and management of the capabilities receive attention, as the term is associated with flexibility, dynamics and variation. On the contrary, little effort has been put towards developing and modeling capabilities. This chapter focuses on the Capability-Driven Development (CDD) method, which is a novel approach for designing capabilities to tackle the challenges of rapidly changing enterprise environments by modeling the application context. The results presented in this chapter are (i) a description of the state of research in capability development methods, (ii) a component-wise structured capability modeling method based on business processes, goals and concepts of an enterprise, (iii) a demonstration of the method application in a use case from the utilities industry and (iv) observations made during the capability development and strategy use.
