Enterprise reference architectures : a research portfolio

J.C. Wortmann

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


The paper addresses several unresolved classical questions about enterprise reference architectures. These questions are discussed in light of current developments in ITC, such as interoperability, component-based software, and configurable software. The discussion leads to four new areas of research, viz.: 1) how can extemal services be modelled? 2) how can man-machine systems be modelled? 3) what is the appropriate level of being generic? and 4) how can distribution of data applications and hardware be mode lied?
