Article on Enterprise Architecture Documentation accepted at HICSS 2013

A paper on Enterprise Architecture (EA) Documentation has been accepted for publication at the 46th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences (HICSS).

Current research activities seek to automate the EA data collection process by integrating existing EA information sources of operative systems. However, a comprehensive analysis of possible information sources and their appropriateness for EA is not yet provided.

To build an empirical basis, the author team (Ruth Breu, Matthias Farwick, Matheus Hauder, Florian Matthes, and Sascha Roth) presents an empirical analysis of information sources for automated EA documentation endeavors. The paper includes findings of a survey conducted on the appropriateness of specific EA information sources for automation with respect to provided data types and data quality.

Paper on EA documentation challenges accepted at TEAR 2012

A paper on EA documentation challenges has been accepted at the 7th Workshop on Trends in Enterprise Architecture Research (TEAR 2012). The author team (Matheus Hauder, Florian Matthes, and Sascha Roth) presents major challenges for an automated EA documentation based on 1) a practical example from a global acting enterprise, 2) a literature review, and 3) a survey among 123 EA practitioners. The identified challenges are synthesized to four categories and constitute the foundation for future research efforts and pose new questions not yet considered.
