2013 (English)In: PoEM Short Papers: Short Paper Proceedings of the 6th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling (PoEM 2013) / [ed] Janis Grabis, Marite Kirikova, Jelena Zdravkovic, Janis Stirna, 2013, 18-28 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Enterprises with transparent boundaries, decentralized organizational structure, and constantly increasing requirements on IT flexibility, is a novel generation of organizations of 2020s. This paper elaborates on how the Enterprise Architecture (EA) can better support such organizations. We analyze three types of organizational structure: centralized, federated and decentralized. First, we identify the concepts that link organizational structure, IT Governance and EA. Then we use these concepts to identify conceptual problems related to IT decentralization, and to propose solutions. We illustrate our findings with a real case of a Higher Education organization in Sweden.
