The Future of Enterprise Systems in a Fully Networked Society

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7328)


The industrialised countries are living in an crucial phase for their economies and social systems. Computers and digital technologies have traditionally played a central role for the development of the socio-economic systems, and of enterprises in particular. But if the socio-economic scenario undergoes profound changes, also the enterprises need to change and, consequently, enterprise computing. In the next decade, enterprise software systems cannot continue to evolve along the beaten paths, there is an urgent need for new directions in the ways enterprise software is conceived, built, deployed and evolved. In this paper we illustrate the main outcome of the Future Internet Enterprise Systems (FInES) Research Roadmap 2025, a study on the future research lines of enterprise systems, promoted by the FInES Cluster of the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media.)
