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 research domain, but a lack of standardized guidelines inhibit its complete reuse.

Revolutionizing Enterprise Interoperability through Scientific Foundations offers information on the latest advancements and research for Enterprise Interoperability knowledge as well as core concepts, theories, and future directions. This book is an essential resource for researchers and practitioners in the Enterprise Interoperability field and related areas.

Topics Covered

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Enterprise interoperability
  • Enterprise Interoperability State of the Art
  • Interoperability Business Value
  • Interoperability Frameworks
  • Interoperability Science Base
  • Interoperability Service Utility

Reviews and Testimonials

Computer and information scientists and electrical and industrial engineers review recent research into how organizations can reduce barriers between each other and operate together seamlessly. The information could be helpful to researchers, practitioners, and students in computer and management sciences and to economic and business policy makers. They cover the scientific foundations of enterprise interoperability, advanced methods and tools, and perspectives and future research. Among the topics are a taxonomy of scientific areas driving the assessment of organizations' readiness, hybrid modeling for conceptual interoperability, an interoperational process engineering system for the collaborative optimization of product life-cycle, an enterprise interoperability framework based on compliance and conformance, and science-based research for advanced interoperability.
