AS IS ORGANIZATIONAL MODELING - The problem of its dynamic management

Nuno Castela, José Tribolet

Abstract

In nowadays business competitive world, the organizations need to have some integrated and accurate representation of its business processes and information systems to allow fast responses to activities like business process reengineering, information systems requirements capture and quality systems implementation, etc. The frequency and importance of this kind of activities is rising up. Unfortunately, the maintenance of this representation is not a trivial question and the business model tends to be constructed to be used and then “sit on the shelf”. In this paper, first is shown why frequently the As-Is model “sit on the shelf”. Then, is shown who the “clients” of the As-Is model are, and how these organizational actors can contribute to maintain the As-Is model updated. In the end preliminary characteristics of a model are identified in order to became it self-sustainable. A meta-model of the As-Is model and a prototype tool are also presented.
