Scoping, naming and binding are central concepts in the deenition and understanding of programming languages. With the introduction of sophisticated data models, these issues become important for query languages as well. Additionally, the goal of integrating query and programming languages requires a common basis for their operational semantics. We ooer(More)
—A number of approaches towards Enterprise Architecture (EA) management is proposed in literature, differing in the underlying understanding of the EA as well as in the description of the function for performing EA management. These plurality of methods and models should be interpreted as an indicator of the low maturity of the research area. In contrast,(More)

Today’s enterprises are confronted with an ever changing environment demanding continuous adaptation. A commonly accepted instrument to guide such transformations is enterprise architecture (EA) management. Enterprises seeking to introduce and establish such a management function see themselves confronted with a plethora of tools, approaches, and(More)
The design of an Enterprise Architecture (EA) management function for an enterprise is no easy task. Various frameworks exist as well as EA management tools, which promise to deliver guidance for performing EA management. Nevertheless, the approaches presented by them stay either on a level too abstract to provide realization support or are far too generic,(More)
As part of the ongoing globalization process, software is no longer developed by a sole enterprise which is based at one single location only. In turn, distributed engineering teams are continuously modifying software by bringing in their local knowledge and country-specific expertise. Due to this cooperation on a global-scale, today's software engineers(More)
The discipline of enterprise architecture (EA) management is albeit a long history still developing. This is becomes obvious, when literature on the EA management function is analyzed. Multiple approaches describe different make-ups for the overall function, while a common sense does yet not exist. In this paper, we analyze EA management functions as(More)
