Information Driven Modeling: The Integration of Enterprise Ontology and Enterprise Architecture for the Mature BI

Jorge Cordeiro Duarte, Mamede Lima-Marques

Abstract

There is a huge interest in the area of engineering ontologies for a very wide range of applications. In modern enterprises and their business process management and decision making, modeling and Business Intelligence (BI) play a significant role. Information Technology (IT) contribution to business strategies and decisions has been questioned. The problem is not with IT, but with business complexity in modern times. The challenge of enterprise intelligence is a mission for the whole enterprise, and depends on intensive collaboration among organizational units. Enterprise BI requires new approaches, methods and tools focused on integration. BI must be part of Enterprise Architecture (EA). This paper offers a new insight on Business Intelligence. It proposes an extension of Archimate methodology in order to integrate EA and BI efforts with enterprise ontology to provide mature enterprise decisions.
