The obligation to become more competitive and effective in providing better products and services requires enterprises to transform from traditional businesses into networked businesses. One of the challenges faced by a network of enterprises is the development of interoperability between its members. Transformations in this context are usually driven by Enterprise Interoperability (EI) problems that may be faced. In order to quickly overcome these problems, enterprises need characterizing and… 
An Ontological Approach to Enhancing Information Sharing in Disaster Response
This work discusses developing POLARISCO as an extension of Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) and the Common Core Ontologies (CCO) and presents a real use-case to check the efficiency and applicability of the proposed ontology.
Adaptation and Evolution Frameworks for Service Based Inter-Organizational Workflows
This paper describes pattern-based frameworks for adaptation and evolution of service-based workflow process models meeting specific cooperation patterns widely recognized in the B2B area, developed according to the MVC pattern and operate on process models specified with BPEL.
Analysis and Comparison of Role-Based Interorganizational Workflows for a Construction Project
In this study, a role-based interorganizational workflow model for participant organizations is developed, in which it is assumed that interoperability has a loosely coupled form for temporary multi-organizations.
Iso 11354-2 for the Evaluation of eHealth Platforms
A quantitative evaluation model is described which operationalizes the evaluation process of eHealth platforms and reduces the dependence on an evaluation team and facilitates the implementation of assessments.
Process maturity models: Classification by application sectors and validities studies
To identify maturity models and their validities as well as a classification of models across industrial sectors, a mapping study was applied to initially retrieved 2381 articles on maturity models published in peer‐reviewed journals between 1993 and June 2015.
The Critical Role of Hospital Information Systems in Digital Health Innovation Projects
A context-specific framework for the formalization of learning plus a systematic presentation of enablers and barriers of DI projects in healthcare is described, which matches both a project management perspective by considering different stages of a DI project and an interoperability perspective as an overall key factor for successful implementation.
Managing Virtuality in Enterprise Social Systems
Current IT trends show that increased spatio-temporal plasticity heightens the effectiveness and the efficiency of predominantly Enterprise Social Systems in the cloud computing environment.
Enterprise maturity models: a systematic literature review
This study investigates the literature that presents assessment models for classifying maturity levels as well as the development of the research area to update the state of the art on MM and identify gaps that may prompt future research.

Maturity model for enterprise interoperability
The objective of this paper is to define a maturity model for enterprise interoperability that takes into account existing maturity models while extending the coverage of the interoperability domain.
A Systemic approach to Interoperability formalization
This paper contextualizes the OoI with a specific vocabulary to the enterprise domain, where solutions to interoperability problems are characterized according to interoperable approaches defined in the ISO 14258 and both solutions and problems can be localized into enterprises levels and characterized by interoperability levels, as defined inThe European Interoperability Framework.
The Levels of Conceptual Interoperability Model
A general model dealing with various levels of conceptual interoperability that goes beyond the technical reference models for interoperable solutions is introduced, intended to become a bridge between the conceptual design and the technical design for implementation, integration, or federation.
A Model-based Ontology of the Software Interoperability Problem: Preliminary Results
This paper presents the general software engineering concepts and proposes the decisional meta-model and the technical aspects meta- model, as prerequisite to the introduction of the actual interoperability model, and discusses the pros and cons.
Enterprise interoperability measurement - Basic concepts
The basic concepts relating to the measurement of the degree of interoperability, characterized by three types of measures: interoperability potentiality, compatibility and performance, are presented.
Describing Interoperability: the OoI Ontology
This paper proposes and discusses a first version of such an ontology, namely the OoI (Ontology of Interoperability), which is formalized using the Ontology Web Language (OWL).
Enterprise ontology - theory and methodology
Researchers and students in enterprise engineering or related fields will discover a revolutionary new way of thinking about business and organization that provides managers, business analysts, and enterprise information system designers for the first time with a solid and integrated insight into their daily work.
A Model Proposal of the Interoperability Problem
A global view of the interoperability problem, independently of any domain, is proposed, and a general structure to handle the possible solutions is suggested.
Business Continuity Planning in Business-Aligned IT Service Management
In an organization’s operation, business goals require IT support for effective communications and business processes automation, and the investment in IT infrastructure requires the substantiation of business needs.
Seizing Opportunities for the Support of Innovation through Committee Standards and Standardization: Insights from German Companies
Analysis of the key results of a research project investigating how German companies, in particular SMEs, can leverage committee standards to drive innovations shows that companies that use standards and are involved regularly in standardization processes are able to create six types of opportunities supporting innovation.
