Reengineering the Organization with a Service Orientation

  • François B. Vernadat
Part of the Integrated Series in Information Systems book series (ISIS, volume 16)


The need to build agile interoperable enterprise systems requires tools and methods to be able to reengineer the organization or a networked organization with a service orientation coupled with the more traditional business process orientation. This Chapter presents a mixed approach combining business process and business service principles for enterprise engineering with focus on enterprise modeling aspects and IT implementation aspects.
