Using the zachman framework to achieve enterprise integration based-on business process driven modelling Chapter in Scopus uri icon


  • © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2008.Enterprise interoperability enables the access to relevant information within an enterprise. Traditionally, enterprise integration implementations are managed as merely technological solutions, but integration requirements outcome from business process needs, such as just-in-time information and integration with strategic partners. Without a business process driven methodology that comprises both technical and behavioural views, enterprise integration projects are prone to failure. This paper proposes a business process driven modelling approach for enterprise integration using the Zachman framework to build the enterprise architecture interoperability. The most important model of the enterprise architecture in this proposal is the business process level and its relationships with other architectural model levels.
