Service-oriented Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Engineering


The 9th Workshop on 

Service oriented Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Engineering 

For engineering service-oriented enterprises in the era of cloud computing could EA notations be a lingua franca? 



SoEA4EE’2017

in conjunction with the EDOC conference since 2009

October 10, 2017, Québec City, Canada  



Extended Deadline June 16, 2017


Enterprise Engineering (EE) is the application of engineering principles to the design of Enterprise Architectures. It enables deriving the Enterprise Architecture from the enterprise goals and strategy and aligning it with the enterprise resources. Enterprise architecture is used to map the enterprise goal and strategy to the enterprise’s resources (actors, assets, IT supports) and to support the evolution of this mapping. It also provides documentation on the assignment of enterprise resources to the enterprise goals and strategy. There are different paradigms for creating enterprise architecture. The most important is to encapsulate the functionalities of IT resources as services. By this means, it is possible to clearly describe the contributions of IT both in terms of functionality and quality and to define a service-oriented enterprise architecture (SoEA).

The goal of the workshop is to develop concepts and methods to assist the engineering and the management of service-oriented enterprise architectures (SoEA) and the software systems supporting them



Topics for Discussion


During the workshop we will discuss the following topics:

1. Alignment of the enterprise goals and strategy with the SoEA

- Interdependencies between services and business goals

- Concepts and methods to align services with the business strategy

- New potentials and trends created by services to reengineer business processes

- Quality issues and non-functional requirements for SoEA

- Coherence of services with compliance requirements

2. Digital enterprises

- New trends in digitization for enterprise architecture and enterprise engineering

- Patterns for digital enterprise architecture

- Impacts of digitized products on enterprise architecture

- Business transformations accompanying the augmentation of physical products with companion services

3. SoEA and influence of social and big data in Enterprise Engineering

- Trends in SoEA to use the capabilities of Big Data (volume, variety, velocity, veracity)

- Impacts of social production on the SoEA

- Creation of weak ties in SoEA

- Collective decision processes in SoEA

- Fitting SoEA with cloud computing; Designing Enterprise Architectures using cloud-services

4. Compliance of SoEA with cloud-based resources

- Concepts and methods for mapping enterprise services to cloud-based resources

- Trends in information system architectures for services

- Concepts and methods for mapping non-functional requirements to cloud-based resources

5. Design of SoEA
