Enterprise Modelling and Integration

From Fact Modelling to Enterprise Interoperability

  • Chapter

Part of the IFIP — The International Federation for Information Processing book series (IFIPAICT,volume 108)

Abstract

Enterprise Modelling and Integration has evolved over the last decades from entity-relationship and activity modelling to object and flow modelling as well as from pier-to-pier system integration to inter-organisational exchanges enabling various forms of electronic commerce. The next challenge is Enterprise Interoperability, i.e. seamless integration in terms of service and knowledge sharing. The paper discusses modelling and integration issues to progress towards Enterprise Interoperability and shows how the CIMOSA architecture can be revised to host these emerging techniques and standards.
