    A new paradigm for the continuous alignment of business and IT: combining enterprise architecture modelling and enterprise ontology
    (Elsevier, 2016) Hinkelmann, Knut; Gerber, Aurona; Karagiannis, Dimitris; Thönssen, Barbara; van der Merwe, Alta; Woitsch, Robert [in: Computers in Industry]
    The paper deals with Next Generation Enterprise Information Systems in the context of Enterprise Engineering. The continuous alignment of business and IT in a rapidly changing environment is a grand challenge for today’s enterprises. The ability to react timeously to continuous and unexpected change is called agility and is an essential quality of the modern enterprise. Being agile has consequences for the engineering of enterprises and enterprise information systems. In this paper a new paradigm for next generation enterprise information systems is proposed, which shifts the development approach of model-driven engineering to continuous alignment of business and IT for the agile enterprise. It is based on a metamodelling approach, which supports both human-interpretable graphical enterprise architecture and machine-interpretable enterprise ontologies. Furthermore, next generation enterprise information systems are described, which embed modelling tools and algorithms for model analysis.

    Extending Business Motivation Modelling to Foster Regional Flexibility in IT Architecture Management
    (IIMC International Information Management Corporation, 2013) Hinkelmann, Knut; Suter, Markus; Cunningham, Paul; Cunningham, Miriam [in: eChallenges e-2013 Conference Proceedings]
    Among the main challenges for standardisation of an IT architecture in a multinational company are the different environments in the countries, in particular regarding regulations and market specifics. Therefore, some subsidiaries have to implement local IT solutions that contradict standardisation efforts and lead to a heterogeneous IT architecture. Dynamic business environments require the on-going adaption and re-alignment of business and IT. This is particularly challenging in global multinational organisations that have to balance between standardisation and local solutions. This paper presents an extension of the OMG Business Motivation Model that supports strategic Business-IT alignment by making explicit the dependencies between a company’s strategy and the different IT architectural realisations. The approach has been developed as a case study with a multinational company and evaluated with a transformation project in a regional organisation.
