A system of entities for enterprise business models

  • P. P. Masliankoa
  • A. S. Maistrenkoa


A business model of a modern enterprise is a base element for the most adequate and reasonable reaction to a change in the enterprise’s socio-economic environment. To achieve desired results, this reaction should take into account enterprise features. The use of metamodeling and systems theory allows one to create an integrated system of business models. Such models are based on enterprise features and are implemented using a common set of entities for all business models.
