Enterprise Meta Modeling Methods - Combining a Stakeholder-Oriented and a Causality-Based Approach
2009 (English)In: ENTERPRISE, BUSINESS-PROCESS AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS MODELING / [ed] Halpin T; Krogstie J; Nurcan S; Proper E; Schmidt R; Soffer P; Ukor R, 2009, Vol. 29, 381-393 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Meta models are the core of enterprise architecture, but still few methods are available for the creation of meta models tailored for specific purposes. This paper presents two approaches, one focusing on the stakeholders' information demand of enterprise architecture and the other driven by causal analysis of enterprise system properties. The two approaches are compared and a combined best-of-breed method is proposed. The combined method has merged the strengths of both approaches, thus combining the stakeholder concerns with causality-driven analysis. Practitioners will, when employing the proposed method, achieve a relevant meta model with strong, and goal-adapted, analytic capabilities.
