Special Session on Enterprise Ontology - SSEO 2012


Jan Dietz
Delft University of Technology

The notion of Enterprise Ontology adopted in this special session is the systemic notion. Next to the common notion of conceptual schema of a reference universe of discourse (the data view), it comprises the construction view, the process view, and the operation view on organizations. Enterprise Ontology seeks for understanding the implementation independent essence of an organization. By nature, an organization’s essential model is a reference model for all organizations in the same business. Such essential models are crucial in mastering the complexity of enterprise transformations, and in designing enterprise information systems and enterprise-wide knowledge management systems.
This special session welcomes R&D work that applies Enterprise Ontology in understanding organizations and subsequently help analyzing, (re)designing, (re)engineering it them and keeping them operational.
