Enterprises are evolving towards a more agile, dynamic and adaptive organisation that can make quick responses to the market and customer requirements. This carried out an increasing need for enterprises to get involved in collaboration strategies. Moreover, new IT organisation, namely Service Oriented Architectures (SOA), can be introduced to implement opened and agile information system. To align the enterprise strategy and the information support system organisation, we present a cooperation model based on SOA, called service oriented enterprise. Thanks to a multi-level process organisation, simple combination and filtering rules can be applied to build dynamically customised distributed processes on demand.
