    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.

    Connecting Enterprise Architecture and Information Objects Using an Enterprise Ontology
    (IEEE, 11/2013) Hinkelmann, Knut; Maise, Michaela; Thönssen, Barbara; van der Merwe, Alta; Gerber, Aurona; de la Harpe, Andre [in: International Conference on Enterprise Systems ES2013]
    In this paper we show how semantic metadata – derived from the enterprise architecture description - can improve both the exploitation of information in the operative business and the continuous alignment of information systems with the business. ArchiMEO, a formal representation of the ArchiMate framework, was applied to model selected parts of a large Swiss company, including metadata of concrete information objects stored in various applications. The evaluation of our approach clearly gave evidence that linking an enterprise ontology with operational databases is beneficiary: it provides an integrated view and management of enterprise entities spread over various data stores, represented in different ways and levels of granularity. Furthermore, because of its inference capabilities, when used as metadata encoding scheme an enterprise ontology can provide context-sensitive access to relevant information.

    Die Risiken entdecken, bevor sie entstehen.
    (Swiss Professional Media, 04.04.2012) Thönssen, Barbara; Emmenegger, Sandro [in: Unternehmer Zeitung]
    Um Risiken in der Supply Chain früh zu entdecken, genügt es nicht, eigene ERP-Daten für Lieferanten auszuwerten. Vielmehr muss das gesamte Netzwerk betrachtet und Daten aus externen Quellen mit internen Daten verknüpft werden. Mit Hilfe semantischer Technologien können Daten integriert, automatisch analysiert und so Risiken früher identifiziert werden.

    Mit Prozessanalyse zum effektiven Dokumentenmanagement
    (Galledia, 02.04.2012) Hinkelmann, Knut; Thönssen, Barbara [in: Marketing & Kommunikation]
    Worauf sollte ein Unternehmen achten, wenn es ein DM-System einrichten will? Wichtig ist, dass nicht einfach alle bestehenden Dokumente verwaltet werden, sondern nur die geschäftsrelevanten. Mit einer Analyse der Geschäftsprozesse kann eine Firma den Aufwand für das Management überflüssiger Dokumente eliminieren und Kosten einsparen.

    Added Value of Sociofact Analysis for Business Agility
    (The AAAI Press, 2011) Hinkelmann, Knut; Riss, Uwe V.; Magenheim, Johannes; Reinhardt, Wolfgang; Nelkner, Tobias; Hinkelmann, Knut; Thönssen, Barbara [in: AI for Business Agility. AAAI 2011 Spring Symposium]
    The increasing agility of business requires an accelerated adaptation of organizations to continuously changing conditions. Individual and organizational learning are prominent means to achieve this. Hereby learning is always accompanied by the development of knowledge artifacts. For the entire of learning and artifact development the term knowledge maturing has been introduced recently, which focuses on these three manifestations of knowledge: cognifacts, sociofacts, and artifacts. In this paper we will focus on sociofacts as the subject-bound knowledge manifestation of social actions. Sociofacts are rooted in respective cognifacts play an independent role due to their binding to collective actions and subjects. These are particularly difficult to grasp but play a decisive role for the performance of organizations and the collaboration in there. The presented paper approaches the notion of sociofacts, discusses them on a theoretical level and establishes a first formal notation for sociofacts. We use the case of a merger between two companies to describe the advantages of sociofact analysis for such process. Some sociofact related problems during a merger are described and possible solutions are presented. We identify technical approaches for seizing sociofacts from tool-mediated social interaction and discuss open question for future research.

    What is Organizational Knowledge Maturing and how can it be assessed?
    (2009) Riss, Uwe; Witschel, Hans Friedrich; Brun, Roman; Thönssen, Barbara [in: Proceedings of I-KNOW ’09 and I-SEMANTICS ’09]
    We introduce the concept of organizational knowledge maturing based on the idea of developing knowledge assets. We explain the dimensions that have to beconsidered and introduce the Knowledge Maturing Dimension Framework to measure the maturity level. Finally we describe service classes as the building blocks of afuture organizational learning and maturing environment (OLME).
