    Supporting Business and IT Alignment by Modeling Business and IT Strategy and its Relations to Enterprise Architecture
    (08/2014) Hinkelmann, Knut; Pasquini, Alex [in: 2nd IEEE Conference on Enterprise Systems]
    In this study, the literature on strategic alignment, strategy modeling and infrastructure architecture modeling has been analyzed and a prototype has been developed for modeling business strategy and IT strategy as well as the relationship between. This modeling technique allows improving the business and IT alignment based on the Strategic Alignment Model of Henderson and Venkatraman. The modeling language is an extension and adaptation of the Business Motivation Model of OMG. The elements, which constitute the overall strategy, can belong to a business view, an IT view or to both. Due to this feature, it is possible to visualize the IT view (IT strategy) or the business view (business strategy) of the generic strategy separately. A concrete example shows how a strategy may be developed.

    Explicitly Modelling Relationships of Risks on Business Architecture
    (IIMC International Information Management Corporation, 2014) Hinkelmann, Knut; Onufrienko, Natalia; Cunningham, Paul; Cunningham, Miriam [in: eChallenges e-2014 Conference Proceedings]
    Todays increased interest in enterprise risk management is motivated by decision making in reaction to change and complex compliance requirements as well as the need to minimize business losses and improve business outcomes. It is therefore important to help business stakeholders become fully aware of applicable risks and their possible impact on other business constituents. This paper represents an extension of the OMG Business Motivation Model that addresses this topic by improving risk visibility through modelling explicit dependencies of risks on business motivation, business decisions, business processes and compliance requirements. This extension in the form of a meta-model as well as its potential to increase overall risk awareness in enterprises were evaluated.

    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.
