Digitization is the application of digital technologies for creating innovative business models and transforming existing business models and processes. Digital business models and process are crucial for many enterprises to achieve their strategic goals. Digitization creates profound changes in the economy and society. Therefore, it has not only a technological but also a business management perspective and new value chains arise. Digitization fosters new models of value creation such as Service-Dominant Logic (Vargo & Lusch, 2004).

Due to the high diversity of concepts, the complexity of systems involved and the heterogeneity of stakeholders, it is crucial to the success of digitization to use methodically sound engineering. Therefore, the workshop “Digital Enterprise Engineering and Architecture” integrates technological themes with business themes and applies engineering principles to the design of Digital Enterprise Architectures (EA). The workshop embraces concepts from Computer Science, Business Information Systems, and Business Administration. It strives for deriving the Digital Enterprise Architectures from the enterprise goals and strategy and aligning it with the enterprise resources. Typical elements of digital enterprise architectures are the use of decision automation, predictive or even prescriptive analytics. In this way, digital technologies such as service-orientation, cloud-computing, big data, mobile or the internet of things enable the creation of new options for enterprises and organizations.

The goal of the workshop is to identify challenges from digitization for enterprises and organizations and to advance Digital Enterprise Engineering and Architecture to cope with these challenges. The workshop shall identify and develop concepts and methods that assist the engineering and the management of digital enterprise architectures and the software systems supporting them.

Topics of interest

  • Methods for Engineering Digital Enterprises
  • Frameworks for the Design of Digital Enterprise Architectures
  • Alignment of the enterprise goals and strategies with the digital enterprise architecture

  • Mapping of digital enterprise architecture to cloud-based enterprise resources and big data
  • Management of digital enterprise architecture
  • Domain-specific application architectures
  • Architecture Management for the digitization of business models and business processes
  • Impact of digitization on society and economy
  • Security in Digital Architectures

Submission guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted. The length of full papers must not exceed 12 pages. Position papers and tool reports should be no longer than 8 pages. Paper submissions should be formatted according to the LNBIP proceedings guidelines and the templates. Papers have to present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the submission category (regular paper/position paper/tool report).

Please use Easychair for submitting your paper.

The paper selection will be based on the relevance to the main topics, as well as upon its quality and potential to generate relevant discussion. All the workshop papers will be published by Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series.
