Architecture of Integrated Information Systems: Foundations of Enterprise Modelling

Architecture of Integrated Information Systems: Foundations of Enterprise Modelling by August-Wilhelm Scheer
English | 29 Feb. 2012 | ISBN: 3642973914 | 240 Pages | PDF | 8 MB

The ARIS architecture developed here is described in concrete terms as an information model within the entity-relationship approach. This information model, in turn, serves as the basis for the systematic and rational application of methods in the development of information systems. Furthermore, it provides the basis for storing the enterprise's application-specific data, organization and function models.
