In a globalized and networked society, interoperability is a pervasive topic as it is a key factor of success for enterprises to meet their own added values and to exploit the market opportunities. This paper aims at presenting a model based on enterprise interoperability potential following the maturity models approach. Interoperability potential assessment requires a framework to capture the artifacts needed for enterprise interoperations. The framework of Enterprise Interoperability (FEI), currently under CEN/ISO standardization process is used as basis for the defined model.
