Paper titled Establishing Architecture Guidelines in Large-Scale Agile Development Through Institutional Pressures by Ömer Uludag, Sascha Nägele, and Matheus Hauder accepted at AMCIS 2019

Abstract: In today’s business environments, organizations are confronted with rapid technological advancements, regulatory uncertainties, and time-to-market pressures. The ability to detect relevant changes and to react timely and effectively becomes an important determinant for business survival. As a result, companies are striving to adopt agile methods on a larger scale to meet these requirements. The adoption of agile methods at scale poses new challenges such as inter-team coordination and communication, balancing intentional and emergent architecture or coordinating various development activities to produce desirable enterprise-wide effects. The latter can be addressed by applying architecture principles and guidelines. However, there is a lack of academic research on how architecture principles can be created and applied in large-scale agile development. Based on a mixed methods research design, this paper proposes a tool supported collaborative approach for establishing architecture principles and guidelines in an agile fashion.

Paper titled What to Expect from Enterprise Architects in Large-Scale Agile Development - A Multiple-Case Study by Ömer Uludag, Martin Kleehaus, Niklas Reiter, and Florian Matthes accepted at AMCIS 2019

Abstract: In modern times, traditional enterprises are confronted with rapidly changing customer demands, increasing market dynamics, and continuous emergence of technological advancements. Confronted with the imperatives of a digital world, companies are striving to adopt agile methods on a larger scale to meet these requirements. In recent years, enterprise architecture management has established itself as a valuable governance mechanism for coordinating large-scale agile transformations by connecting strategic considerations to the execution of transformation projects. Our research is motivated by the lack of empirical studies on the collaboration between enterprise architects and agile teams. Against this backdrop, we present a multiple-case study of five leading German companies that aims to shed light on this field of tension. Based on our results from 20 semi-structured interviews, we present the expectations of agile teams for enterprise architects and how they are fulfilled.

A paper has been accepted for publication at AMCIS 2013


A research paper has been accepted for publication at the 19th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS). In the paper entitled "Facilitating Conflict Resolution of Models for Automated Enterprise Architecture Documentation", the author team Sascha Roth, Matheus Hauder, Felix Michel, Dominik Münch, and Florian Matthes present a process for the resolution of conflicts to enable the automated documentation of Enterprise Architecture Models. The proposed solution uses interactive visualizations to resolve conflicts in a collaborative setting and is illustrated using a productive Enterprise Service Bus from a leading organization of the fashion industry. An implementation of this process based on an Enterprise 2.0 collaboration platform is presented and evaluated with expert interviews.
