Towards an Integrated Model for Enterprise Interoperability

Wided Guédria

Abstract

One of the challenges faced by a network of enterprises is the development of interoperability between its members. Transformations in this context are usually driven by Enterprise Interoperability (EI) problems that may be faced. In order to quickly overcome these problems, enterprises need characterizing and assessing interoperability to be prepared to establish means for collaboration. Maturity models have been developed in response to this challenge. In this paper, we propose to define an integrated model based on a maturity model and an ontological formalization of the enterprise interoperability domain. This will allow diagnosing interoperability problems when assessing interoperability. The integrated model could be used improve the capability of an enterprise to interoperate based on a shared understanding of interoperability.
