The complexity of strategic alignment is an overwhelming issue in the digital age for organizations. Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) is a major tool that facilitate the alignment efforts, providing several methods for planning and analysis. There are several methodologies that need a formal and systematic approach. The artefacts describing an Enterprise Architecture can be perceived as documents that can be represented in hypergraphs. The graph-based approach lays the groundwork for…

Modeling framework for designing and analyzing document-centric information systems based on HypergraphDB
This work suggests a generic modeling approach based on the generalized hypergraphs to assist the designing, analyzing, validating and optimizing steps during model creation, and uses the HypergraphDB which is a graph database providing every advantages of the generichypergraphs.
Facet of Modeling Web Information Systems from a Document-Centric View
This work focuses on the organizational and business activity modeling and focuses on documents that represent the information of enterprises in the form of unstructured and semi-structured documents.
On the Support of Automated Analysis Chains on Enterprise Models
This paper presents an approach to describe, validate, and execute analysis chains composed by both automated and non-automated analysis methods, based on the previous characterization of automated analysis methods.
Information systems modelling based on graph-theoretic background
The paper describes the mapping of the important concepts onto hypergraphs as documents, processes in cases, their models and some rules for verification and validation; the hypergraph description can be interpreted as a concept hypergraph to be subjected for logical reasoning.

Business and Information Systems MisAlignment Model (BISMAM): an Holistic Model Leveraged on Misalig
This paper proposes a model, the Business and Information Systems MisAlignment Model (BISMAM), to understand, to classify and to manage mis alignments, and establishes a misalignment classification scheme that links enterprise architecture views, misal alignment symptoms and causes, and defining techniques to detect, correct and prevent misalignments.
