This article reflects on existing and emerging future challenges arising in the area of “evolutionary business information systems”, a class of systems that demand an evolutionary software development process and which support secondary design of various conceptual layers. We place both existing contributions and future research opportunities in context by referring to an idealized, preliminary system architecture. Finally, we emphasize our pluralistic perspective on the research object and the…

Multilayered analysis of co-development of business information systems
TLDR
This paper presents an approach for characterizing the co-development of real-world BIS with respect to direct participation from different kinds of contributors, and focuses on the intersection of these subsystems, present appropriate metrics and a multilayered analysis scheme.
From Expert Discipline to Common Practice: A Vision and Research Agenda for Extending the Reach of Enterprise Modeling
TLDR
This research note argues that EM is far from its maximum potential, develops a vision for extending the reach of EM, identifies research areas contributing to the vision and proposes elements of a future research agenda.
Exploring the relations between net benefits of IT projects and CIOs' perception of quality of software development disciplines
TLDR
Examination of software process quality evaluation models should start evaluating multiple categories of quality instead of just one and should not assume that the application of every individual SDM discipline has the same effect on the enterprise’s net benefits.
Business Process Elaboration through Virtual Enactment
TLDR
The concept of process elaboration through scaffolded virtual enactment through scaffolding virtual enactment is developed and instantiated in a web-based tool that enables to explore the potential of the approach.

Towards Successful Collaboration: Design Guidelines for AI-based Services enriching Information Systems in Organisations
TLDR
For a successful deployment of AIBS in organisations the D&M IS Success Model will be considered to validated requirements within three major dimensions of quality: Information Quality, System Quality, and Service Quality.
Exploring Collective DSL Integration in a Large Situated IS: Towards Comprehensive Language Integration in Information Systems
TLDR
The ambitions towards a language integration approach that aims at mitigating language integration redundancies in large situated information system instances are presented and exemplified in the context of an existing educational information system instance.
Towards a Framework for Analytics-driven Domain-specific Mashup Environments
TLDR
A proposal for research towards a generic framework that supports the design of domain-specific mashup environments through native analytics is presented.
Open-Source Development Tools for Domain-Specific Modeling: Results from a Systematic Literature Review
TLDR
This paper extracts tooling information from the selected SLR papers and classify these software tools supporting DSML development, and reports on usage frequencies for MDD-based tools as well as on their corresponding open-and closed-source license models.
Principles for unbounded secondary design
TLDR
This work proposes design principles for this unbounded secondary design derived from a group decision support tool case that was presented, redesigned and infused into two different organisational domains.

TLDR
This book investigates on methods to organization development, work psychological guide-lines, approaches to software development and tailoring in use, and develops an integrated approach to organization and technology development.
Information Architecture: In Search of Efficient Flexibility
TLDR
It is concluded that neither solution will succeed on its own and that firms need to combine elements of both to meet the challenges of the 1990s, and two architectural solutions to this problem are discussed.
Tools for inventing organizations: toward a handbook of organizational processes
TLDR
A key element of the work is a novel approach to representing processes at various levels of abstraction which allows users to explicity represent the similarities (and differences) among related processes and to easily find or generate sensible alternatives for how a given process could be performed.
Action Design Research
TLDR
Action design research (ADR) reflects the premise that IT artifacts are ensembles shaped by the organizational context during development and use and conceptualizes the research process as containing the inseparable and inherently interwoven activities of building the IT artifact, intervening in the organization, and evaluating it concurrently.
Consortium Research
TLDR
A method for Consortium Research is proposed, which is supposed to facilitate multilateral collaboration of researchers and practitioners during the research process, based on a self-evaluating design process which was carried out over a period of 20 years.
Living Models - Ten Principles for Change-Driven Software Engineering
TLDR
Ten core principles of Living Models are presented together with three application scenarios which provide a coherent view of the quality status of the system (integrating the perspectives of all stakeholders) which evolves together with the running systems.
Enterprise Mashup Systems as Platform for Situational Applications
TLDR
Enterprise Mashup technology is introduced as a means to improve IT alignment of individual work processes and changing business needs to assess the potential business value and explain the emerging expansion of Mashup platforms in companies.
Towards a pluralistic conception of research methods in information systems research
TLDR
To develop a common conception of science that fits all disciplines and can be adapted to serve the peculiarities of ISR at the same time, a conceptual framework is developed that guides the configuration of individual research methods.
A Design Science Research Methodology for Information Systems Research
TLDR
The designed methodology effectively satisfies the three objectives of design science research methodology and has the potential to help aid the acceptance of DS research in the IS discipline.
An Overview of Feature-Oriented Software Development
TLDR
An overview and a personal perspective on the roots of FOSD, connections to other software development paradigms, and recent developments in this field are given.
