Evaluation of ARIS and Zachman Frameworks as Enterprise Architectures [chapter]

Melita Kozina
2014 Designing Enterprise Architecture Frameworks  
The goal of this paper was to analyze the Architecture of Integrated Information Systems (ARIS) and the Zachman frameworks, to define the criteria for comparison and evaluation of these approaches, and  ...  These frameworks called enterprise architectures can provide the conceptual foundation necessary for building and managing the integral business system and all its components.  ...  We can update an object in any one part of a model, for all other occurrences of that object to instantly be updated.  ...

Evaluating Information Systems Constructing a Model Processing Framework

João Duarte, André Vasconcelos
2010 International Journal of Enterprise Information Systems  
We therefore combine our desire for real-time evaluation with the benets of architecture representation to produce an ontologically supported method of modelling, capturing and evaluating systemic behaviour  ...  We produce a conceptual framework to performing this task, while avoiding the imprecise denitions of quality and quality attributes.  ...  Objects as things must be reied within the tool, so that Object diagrams or similar representation of object-level Implementing the Model Processing Framework An abstract framework for evaluating enterprise  ...

Another Look at Enterprise Architecture Framework

Shuichiro Yamamoto, Nada Ibrahem Olayan, Shuji Morisaki
2018 Journal of Business Theory and Practice  
The result shows the easiness and concreteness of the proposed EA comparison framework.</p>  ...  The paper first defines 36 concrete features of EA frameworks using six categories and six interrogatives. Then we concretely compare typical EA frameworks based on the key features.  ...  The comparison framework omits quality criteria such as understandability and complexity. These criteria is difficult to evaluate objectively.  ...

Autonomous recovery from hostile code insertion using distributed reflection

Catriona M Kennedy, Aaron Sloman
2003 Cognitive Systems Research  
Some reflective (or "meta-level") components enable the system to monitor its execution traces and detect anomalies by comparing them with a model of normal activity.  ...  We present an architecture in which reflection is distributed so that components mutually observe and protect each other, and where the system has a distributed model of all its components, including those  ...  The model of a meta-level should be at least as detailed as the model of object-level components.  ...

Formalizing Object-Oriented Design Metrics upon the UML Meta-Model

Aline Lúcia Baroni, Fernando Brito e Abreu
2002 Zenodo  
The combination of the UML meta-model and OCL allows unambiguous metrics definition, which in turn helps increasing tool support for object-oriented metrics extraction.  ...  This paper discusses the formalization effort of object-oriented design metrics definitions and presents some concrete examples, developed upon the UML meta-model.  ...  While the architecture depicted in figure 4 corresponds to a model level evaluation, the one depicted in figure 5 is related to a meta-model level evaluation.  ...

Towards an Architecture Quality Index for the Behavior of Software Systems

Ana Dragomir, Horst Lichter
2014 2014 21st Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference  
However the current state of the art lacks both methodologies and tools for ensuring availability of architecture descriptions and fails to offer objective means for evaluating software architectures.  ...  In this paper, we present our current results towards creating a so-called architecture quality index that includes a bidirectional architecture quality model as well as a quality benchmark created for  ...  In order to enable an evaluation of the monitored and analyzed behavior from an architecture point of view, we define in the next sections a bidirectional quality model and a suitable benchmark to support  ...
