Evolution of Enterprise Systems Architectures

  • Mathias WeskeEmail author


The evolution of enterprise systems architectures is addressed in Chapter 2. After presenting traditional architectures, enterprise application integration concepts and service oriented architectures are introduced. The main goal of this chapter is to identify the role of business process management systems in the context of enterprise architectures. Workflow management systems are introduced and their relationships to service oriented architectures are highlighted. Chapter 2 concludes with a business process management landscape that relates the concepts with each other and provides a layered architecture that organizes them.
