A Conceptual Framework for Enterprise Architecture Design [chapter]

Sabine Buckl, Florian Matthes, Sascha Roth, Christopher Schulz, Christian M. Schweda
2010 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
An ambiguous terminology as well as a lack of clarity prevail in information systems research when focusing on enterprise architecture (EA) and its corresponding management function.  ...  Sound definitions for key terms in the field of EA design, i.e. strategies, principles, and goals, are too often used interchangeably with slightly different meaning.  ...  These models are conceptual models committing to an agreed conceptualization (cf.  ...

Conceptual Integrity of Software Systems: Architecture, Abstraction and Algebra

Iaakov Exman
2017 Proceedings of the 29th International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
Conceptual Integrity has been claimed to be the essence of high-quality software system design.  ...  This paper evolves in this direction by two means: first, by analysis and clarification of open issues in architecture and abstraction terms; second, by pointing out to a mathematical formulation in algebraic  ...  These efforts are among others: requirements engineering, conceptual modeling, integrity verification, software system design, and software architecture planning.  ...

Challenges in Teaching Conceptual Modeling for Systems Architecting [chapter]

Gerrit Muller
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We find that we have to stretch participants multifold to let them evolve from designer into systems architect and conceptual modeler.  ...  Systems architecting uses conceptual modeling as tool for understanding, reasoning, communication and decision making.  ...  The only exception is the first assignment, where we use an elevator example explaining essential aspects of conceptual modeling, as described in [15] , such as the need for complementary models.  ...

Government Architecture: Concepts, Use and Impact [chapter]

Marijn Janssen, Leif Skiftenes Flak, Øystein Sæbø
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We defined central concepts of GA, and propose a conceptual model illustrating the relationships between GA concepts, its use, benefits and public value drivers.  ...  Nevertheless our study confirmed the assumption of conceptual confusion. In both countries GA efforts are concentrated towards guiding design projects and dealing with complexity.  ...  Architecture influences the design decisions and the investments of an organization and in turn is influenced by behavior and design decisions.  ...

The Concepts of Modularization in ICT Service Modeling

F. Schorr, L. Hvam
2019 2019 IEEE International Conference on Industrial Engineering and Engineering Management (IEEM)  
Conceptual service models represent how we understand an ICT service's structure, definition, and scope.  ...  The use of architectures and modularity are key theoretical concepts helping to manage the design of complex products.  ...  Because of the complexity of service design, academia sees a growing demand for using architectural principles such as modularity and conceptual modeling methods focusing on services [5] .  ...
