Business Modelling for the Development and Implementation of Enterprise ApplicationsDr. Sjaak Brinkkemper
Baan Company R&D, The Netherlands
14.00 - 17.30 Wednesday 6 June
Enterprise Applications, such as Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Supply
Chain Management (SCM), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) demand a new
vision on information technology management. The rapid pace of both technology
and business changes require tools for flexible business process re-engineering
coupled to smooth application implementation.
The aim of this presentation is to address the state of the art in enterprise modeling methods by showing the Dynamic Enterprise Modeling (DEM) method of Baan. The basics of the creation of enterprise models are presented and their role in implementation projects is exemplified by actual projects.
We start with an overview of DEM, and present the context of enterprise modeling in ERP selection and implementation processes. Three diagramming techniques are explained in depth:
We end with a discussion on how the DEM concepts can be generalized for an implemenatation method of any enterprise application system.
