Abstract [en]

In this thesis, the Domain Neutral Enterprise Architecture Framework (DNEAF) for Enterprise Application Integration Services (EAIS) and Platform Pervasive Services (PPS) is presented. It addresses a problem that many organizations experience that introduce an Enterprise Architecture in order to support the integration of different services across the enterprise. The problem is that, organizations do not know where they either have or may encounter weaknesses in their Enterprise Architecture. The framework presented is based on concepts from OMG’s Model Driven Architecture and is designed to support both Transitional Gap Analysis (TGA) and Comparative Gap Analysis (CGA). TGA is supported by comparing a baseline PIM to a target PIM where both PIMs have been defined from the CIM. CGA is facilitated by mapping a PIM to two or more PSM’s. The research methodology used in the thesis is design science research. The DNEAF for EAIS and PPS has been applied in many different real-world organizations. In order to demonstrate the framework, three applications of the framework are presented in the form of case studies. The case studies cover eHealth, Banking and Comparing Vendor Platforms. The eHealth case study demonstrates how the framework can be used to design a platform solution. The Banking case study demonstrates how the framework can be used in Transitional Gap Analysis. The Comparing Vendor Platforms case study demonstrates how the framework can be used in Comparative Gap Analysis. All three case studies are based on real-world examples. The thesis also presents a number of requirements on the framework and their fulfillments are discussed as well.
