|Revolutionizing Enterprise Interoperability through Scientific Foundations
Yannis Charalabidis, Fenareti Lampathaki, Ricardo Jardim-Goncalves.
Organizations and enterprises are becoming more competitive about enlarging their target markets and developing innovative products and services, all the while transforming their business models to better fit the new technological era. Enterprise Interoperability (EI) is an emerging and thriving...
Enterprise Interoperability Science Base Structure
A science base for enterprise interoperability was first proposed in 2006 as a mechanism to formalize knowledge being generated by researchers and applied by industry to facilitate collaboration between enterprises through mutual interoperability of their enterprise systems. Subsequently, the community...
A Taxonomy of Scientific Areas Driving Assessment of Organisations Readiness
Sotirios Koussouris, Spiros Mouzakitis, Fenareti Lampathaki.
Enterprise Interoperability is one of the most crucial research domains of the modern information age, as it is directly linked with the competitiveness of enterprises as it defines at a large extent the ability of an enterprise to take advantage of the productivity gains offered by the ICT solutions...
Underpinning EISB with Enterprise Interoperability Neighboring Scientific Domains
Carlos Agostinho, Ricardo Jardim-Goncalves, Adolfo Steiger-Garcao.
Over the last decade, interoperability appeared as a key enabler towards unlocking the full potential of enterprises, products, processes, and systems. With methods to support their lifecycle, contributing towards removing communication barriers, and fostering a new-networked business culture in...
The Multidimensional Business Value of Information Systems Interoperability
Euripidis Loukis, Yannis Charalabidis, Vasiliki Diamantopoulou.
The creation of complete scientific foundations in the IS interoperability domain necessitates not only the development of mature and widely applicable interoperability architectures, methods, and standards, but also the systematic investigation of the business value they generate. This chapter...
Hybrid Modeling: An Instrument for Conceptual Interoperability
Enterprise Interoperability can be identified on cultural, rule, process, data, software, object, social network, services, knowledge, electronic ID, cloud, and ecosystem level, whereas the challenge is the conceptual integration across those layers in a flexible way. Meta Modeling as a concept is a...
Interoperability in Service-Oriented Production Networks: Managing n:n Relationships with xRM
Spiros Alexakis, Markus Bauer, Johannes Britsch, Bernhard Kölmel.
How can complex relationship structures be managed? When collaborating in networks, the diversity of stakeholder relationships is increasing. Most times, this leads to interoperability issues that need to be addressed. In this chapter, the authors show how Anything Relationship Management (xRM) can...
Collaboration and Interoperability within a Virtual Enterprise Applied in a Mobile Maintenance Scenario
Tobias Münch, Jan Hladik, Angelika Salmen, Werner Altmann, Robert Buchmann, Dimitris Karagiannis, Jens Ziegler, Johannes Pfeffer, Leon Urbas, Oscar Lazaro, Patricia Ortiz, Oscar Lopez, Etxahun Sanchez, Frank Haferkorn.
This chapter presents an infrastructure approach for virtual enterprises developed by the consortium of the European research project ComVantage and discusses its impact with respect to the mobile maintenance domain. The approach focuses on the core aspects of interoperability, which are data...
A Case for Enterprise Interoperability in Healthcare IT: Personal Health Record Systems
Mustafa Yuksel, Asuman Dogac, Cebrail Taskin, Anil Yalcinkaya.
The PHR systems need to be integrated with a wide variety of healthcare IT systems including EHRs, electronic medical devices, and clinical decision support services to get their full benefit. It is not possible to sustain the integration of PHRs with other healthcare IT systems in a proprietary way;...
Attaining Semantic Enterprise Interoperability through Ontology Architectural Patterns
Rishi Kanth Saripalle, Steven A. Demurjian.
Enterprise Interoperability Science Base (EISB) represents the wide range of interoperability techniques that allow the creation of a new enterprise application by utilizing technologies with varied data formats and different paradigms. Even if one is able to bridge across these formats and paradigms...
Towards an Enhanced Interoperability Service Utility: An Ontology Supported Approach
Irene Matzakou, João Sarraipa, Ourania I. Markaki, Kostas Ergazakis, Dimitris Askounis.
This chapter suggests an innovative approach towards establishing Enterprise Interoperability in the everyday electronic transactions among the contemporary enterprise information systems. Based on the rather cutting-edge concept of the “Interoperability Service Utility (ISU),” enriched with a concrete...
An Enterprise Interoperability Framework based on Compliance and Conformance
José C. Delgado.
The existing interoperability frameworks usually take an application-driven, top-down approach, in which the most relevant dimensions of interoperability are optimized for some problem space. For example, The European Interoperability Framework has been conceived primarily to support e-Government...
Science-Base Research for Advanced Interoperability
H. T. Goranson, Beth Cardier.
Studies show that enterprises are severely constrained by their management structures, and that those constraints become more vexing as information technologies are adopted. This is more true as “interoperability engineering” advances; the enterprise is capable of doing simple, ordinary things better...
On the Scientific Foundations of Enterprise Interoperability: The ENSEMBLE Project and Beyond
Yannis Charalabidis, Fenareti Lampathaki, Ricardo Jardim-Goncalves.
In a rapidly evolving landscape, enterprises face unprecedented challenges and opportunities to become more innovative, competitive, and efficient. Despite the technological readiness and the abundance of solutions, the interoperability issues still afflict enterprises as they remain untackled at...
Enterprise Resource Planning Models for the Education Sector: Applications and Methodologies
Kanubhai K. Patel, Sanjaykumar Vij.
Even as enterprise resource planning (ERP) continues to play a strategic role in an education sector, educational institutions and universities are facing many challenges in creating strong ERP applications and methods to achieve the expectations of academia.Enterprise Resource Planning Models for the...
Aligning Enterprise, System, and Software Architectures
Ivan Mistrik, Antony Tang, Rami Bahsoon, Judith A. Stafford.
Although enterprise, system, and software architectures have many common features and often overlap in practice, the presence of each architecture is required in the planning and design of a system. The alignment of these architectures in the design processes is important in the development of...
Principles of Concurrent E-Learning Design
Knut Arne Strand, Arvid Staupe, Tor Atle Hjeltnes.
Instructional design is a process that in many cases requires multidisciplinary collaboration among several stakeholders. Domain experts, pedagogues, technical experts, economists, administrative personnel, customer representatives, instructors, and learners may have very different preferences, and...
