VIEW VISUALISATION FOR ENTERPRISE ARCHITECTURE - From conceptual framework to prototype

Maria-Eugenia Iacob, Diederik van Leeuwen

Abstract

In this paper we address the problem of visualisation of enterprise architectures. To this purpose a framework for the visualisation of architectural views and the design of a visualisation infrastructure are presented. Separation of concerns between storage, internal representation and presentation is the main requirement for setting up this framework, since it will allow us to select and subsequently present differently the same content (models) to different types of stakeholders. Our approach has resulted in an operational prototype that has been tested in a pilot case, also presented in what follows.
