    Capability Driven Development: An Approach to Designing Digital Enterprises2015In: Business & Information Systems Engineering, ISSN 1867-0202, Vol. 57, no 1, 15-25 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The need for organizations to operate in changing environments is addressed by proposing an approach that integrates organizational development with information system (IS) development taking into account changes in the application context of the solution. This is referred to as Capability Driven Development (CDD). A meta-model representing business and IS designs consisting of goals, key performance indicators, capabilities, context and capability delivery patterns, is being proposed. The use of themeta-model is validated in three industrial case studies as part of an ongoing collaboration project, whereas one case is presented in the paper. Issues related to the use of the CDD approach, namely, CDD methodology and tool support are also discussed.

    A Comparative Analysis of Enterprise Modeling Approaches for Modeling Business Strategy2013In: PoEM Short Papers 2013: 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, 193-204 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A gap in the alignment of business and IT lies between strategy and IS, despite the advancements of enterprise modeling. The objective of our study is to compare various enterprise modeling approaches with respect to their ability to capture and represent strategy notions. This includes identifying strategy notions from established business strategy formulations within Strategic Management, which are expressed in the Unified Business Strategy Meta Model. The interdisciplinary nature of the study constitutes a research challenge due to the significant difference on the levels of abstraction between Strategic Management and IS. To the best of our knowledge, no similar effort has been undertaken, therefore, the outcome of this study will provide the enterprise modeling community with a basis to address strategy and IS alignment linking strategic objectives and intentions to information systems.

    Advanced Context Processing for Business Process Execution Adjustment2015In: Advanced Information System Engineering workshops (CAiSE): CAiSE 2015 International Workshops, Stockholm, Sweden, June 8-9, 2015, Proceedings / [ed] Anne Persson, Janis Stirna, Berlin: Springer, 2015, 15-26 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Business process execution is affected by various contextual factors. Context-aware business processes consider the contextual factors during process design and execution. There is a large variety of possible context situations and their impact on the business process is difficult to know in advance. To this end an advanced context processing to adjust business process execution is proposed. It allows flexible definition of meaningful context categories using measurable properties of the context and run-time adjustment of the categories. The adjustment is performed depending on the progress towards achieving business goals. The proposal is demonstrated by a travel management example.

    CaaS Deliverable 5.3: The Final Version of Capability Driven Development Methodology2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The overall objective of the CaaS project is to create an integrated approach consisting of methods, tools and reusable best practices that allow digital enterprises to take advantage of changes in business context and technologies. This deliverable primarily contributes to CaaS Objective 1, namely, “to elaborate a methodology and supporting methods for Capability Driven Development (CDD) which is adopted by the industrial partners involved in the project and their customers”. To this end the deliverable presents the final version of the CDD methodology, which consists of a number of method components supporting different aspects of the CDD process. More specifically, methodology components addressing capability design, enterprise and business process modelling, context modelling, supporting reuse, as well as adjusting capability delivery at run-time have been developed. Furthermore, there is a method component supporting the decision making about whether or not CDD is suitable and how to get started. The methodology also includes method extensions for specific application domains, namely business process outsourcing, collaborative software development and project management office. The deliverable reflects the modular and incremental approach to methodology engineering and documentation in CaaS, which is manifested in the methodology components and extensions. The modularity allows for the users to focus only on those parts of the methodology that are needed for their work. The CDD methodology is described from three conceptual aspects – (1) The modelling languages in terms of concepts and notations used to represent the modelling product, i.e. the models and capability designs created. (2) The way of working, the procedures and tools used, in order to arrive at a capability design that fits organization’s needs, i.e. the modelling process. (3) The technical foundation and formal definition of algorithms for run-time adjustments of capabilities. The deliverable also includes extensive examples of capability design, context modelling and run-time adjustments. These examples are meant to support understanding and selection of the method components.

    Optimizing Distributed Energy Resources, Passive Measures, and the daily Operation at Campus Pinkafeld2013Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Building managers and operators as at Campus Pinkafeld are interested in a cost optimal fulfilment of their energy needs. From a strategic point of view they are interested in optimal investments and upgrades. From an operative point of view they are interested in an optimal use of all available resources. This paper shows how the decision support system (DSS) of the project Energy Efficiency and Risk Management in Public Buildings (EnRiMa) will help with this challenges and the integration of the DSS with the existing energy management system (EMS) is one of the key issues for a successful project. The strategic DSS will inform the building owner about possible new technologies that might reduce the total building energy costs or environmental impact. The benefit of an operational DSS is to enable the building operator to use already adopted energy efficiency improving technologies as pre-cooling, pre-heating or any other demand response related tasks to decrease costs and emissions caused by the heating and cooling system of the building. Assuming an upper and lower limit for the room temperature, we model the effect of active equipment control (via changes to either the set point or the valve flow) on the zone temperature taking into account the external temperature, solar gains, the building shell, and internal loads. The energy required to change the zone temperature in each time period is then used to calculate the energy cost or efficiency in the objective function of an optimization problem. This paper reports on example results for Campus Pinkafeld, shows the technical approach, and that such a flexible approach can save 10% costs only on an operational level.

    Supporting Energy Efficiency Decisions with IT: Initial Experiences from the EnRiMa Project2013In: Perspectives in Business Informatics Research: 12th International Conference, BIR 2013. Proceedings / [ed] Andrzej Kobyliński, Andrzej Sobczak, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, 315-326 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IT solutions can aid decision makers in making informed decisions that lower the energy consumption in buildings. However, in order to design and implement an IT solution there are a number of issues that need to be resolved, for example, adequately handling sometimes contradicting goals of the decision makers and integrating the Decision Support System with the existing building IT infrastructure in the form of building management systems. In this paper we report on our initial experiences from implementing a decision support system for the management of energy consumption in public buildings. The experiences are based on our work with the EnRiMa project that aims to develop a state-of art decision support system for lowering the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of public buildings. We divide our experiences into two areas, namely, business concerns and software architectural, and provide our initial solutions and lessons learned with respect to these areas. Furthermore, we discuss a number of challenges for future work in the area of IT support for energy efficiency.

    CaaS Deliverable 3.3: Context aware collaborative software development case validation report for the CaaS approach2016Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This deliverable reports on the validation of the CDD method and CDD environment tools done by applying them in the CLMS use case as part of WP3. The validation addresses four areas. Firstly, the use case goals (defined in D3.2) are revised and their fulfilment is examined. Secondly, questionnaires have been used to examine the CDD methods usefulness, ease of use, ease of transfer and the user’s intention to use the method. Similarly, questionnaires has been used to evaluate the CDD environment in the form the of CDT, CPP and CNA tools. Thirdly, a use case checklist has been produced that describe the current state of the implementation. Fourth, experiences and points for improvements have been documented based on the work within the use case. The validation has shown that the CDD methodology and tools have been successfully used in the use case. The use case goals have been met, either by means of the implementation done with the CDD environment, or indirectly by the use of the CDD methodology. Even though the CDD methodology and environment used in the case was not the final ones, the questionnaires show that the CDD methodology and environment have been used and are deemed of high usefulness in the case. Points for future improvement have been documented for both the method and tools. To some extent the special needs of method components have been covered by method extensions already suggested by the WP3 participants. The use case checklist shows that support for the three identified capabilities has been implemented with the use of the CDD environment components, namely, CDT, CCP and CNA.

    Extending Capabilities with Context Awareness2016In: Advanced Information Systems Engineering Workshops: CAiSE 2016 International Workshops, Ljubljana, Slovenia, June 13-17, 2016, Proceedings / [ed] John Krogstie, Haralambos Mouratidis, Jianwen Su, Springer, 2016, 40-51 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations have the need to continuously adjust their capabilities to changes in the business context. If existing IT systems and associated development methods does not support this adjustment they need to be changed to do so. However, there exist specialized methods and tools that allow the design, and run-time monitoring of context information. In this paper an approach that allows existing systems to be extended with the management of context information is presented. The approach allows organizations to analyze the potential effect and effort of combing existing systems and tools with specialized tools that handle context information. The purpose of providing means for the integrated use of existing systems and specialized tools is to leverage the strength of both. The approach in grounded in and illustrated by a case of industrial symbiosis.

    A Repository for Pattern Governance Supporting Capability Driven Development2017In: Joint Proceedings of the BIR 2017 pre-BIR Forum, Workshops and Doctoral Consortium co-located with 16th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2017) / [ed] Björn Johansson, CEUR-WS.org , 2017Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Patterns have a great potential for improving various aspects of Information System (IS) designs by reuse. While they have been routinely used for conveying reusable design solutions in books and knowledge repositories, there is an ongoing debate about their impact in practice. This is due to the fact that insufficient efforts are devoted to elaborating effective solutions for eliciting and documenting patterns, evaluating them, tracing IS designs back to the applied patterns, and assisting the designer in choosing the right pattern in a given contextual situation. These tasks need to be supported by advanced pattern repositories that are able to manage patterns at runtime. The article presents the usage of a Capability Pattern Repository (CPR) in support of an approach for design and delivery of context dependent IS, namely, Capability Driven Development (CDD). The CPR together with CDD provides a tool and a method that support pattern governance for addressing both the design and run-time of IS. The described approach is not bound to CDD and can be adapted to support different types of patterns and development methodologies.

    Organizational Adoption of Enterprise Modeling Methods – Experience Based Recommendations2014In: The Practice of Enterprise Modeling / [ed] Frank, U., Pastor, O., Loucopoulos, P., Petrounias, I, Springer , 2014, 179-182 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Organizations normally begin using Enterprise Modeling (EM) within the context of a development project of some sort, where an outside vendor and/or consultant provide the method and related IT tool usage competence. If an organization uses EM sufficiently frequently it may be motivated to develop in-house EM competence and to acquire and adopt an EM method. The paper is an experience paper. It defines what it means to adopt an EM method in an organization and describes the process of adopting and institutionalizing EM as an organizational strategy to support continuous improvement and development. The process consists of three activities: deciding that an EM method should be adopted as part of the organization’s set of institutionalized methods, electing a suitable method and implementing the method.

    Capability-as-a-Service: towards Context-aware Business Services2014In: Enterprise Distributed Object Computing Conference Workshops and Demonstrations (EDOCW), 2014 IEEE 18th International, IEEE conference proceedings, 2014, 324-332 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In industrial areas with a highly competitive environment all enterprise functions are expected to contribute to efficient operations and an economic cost structure. Service-orientation and cloud computing offer approaches to achieve more efficiency in the use of computing resources and more flexibility with respect to outsourcing strategies. The systematic management of the capabilities of an enterprise, which often are reflected in the business services offered to customers and the technical services associated to them, is emerging into a key activity for achieving efficiency, which would require to move from business process or software as a service (BPaaS, SaaS) to capabilities as a service (CaaS). In order to facilitate Capability management, we propose business service design explicitly considering delivery context by an approach that supports modeling both, the service as such and the application context. The main contributions of this paper are (1) an industrial case offering platform, software and business as a services and motivating another abstraction layer, (2) the concept of Capability-as-a-Service including methodical aspects and technology for delivery, and (3) an initial model for capabilities for the industrial case, i.e. a feasibility study.

    Abstract [en]

    Efficient value creation and service delivery processes are considered as the key factor to competitiveness in a globalized market environment. This paper focuses on a specific aspect of business and IT alignment: the adaptation of business services to new business needs, i.e. the focus is on services offered to customers of an enterprise rather than on the enterprise IT as whole. The systematic management of the capabilities of an enterprise, which often are reflected in the business services offered to customers and the technical services associated to them, is emerging into a key activity for achieving efficiency. In order to facilitate capability management, we propose business service design explicitly considering delivery context by an approach that supports modeling both, the service as such and the application context. The main contributions of this paper are (1) the analysis of business & IT alignment needs in an industrial case of business process outsourcing introduction, (b) the concept of context- based business services as contribution to capability management, and (c) an example for context and business service models.

    Enterprise modeling: tackling business challenges with the 4EM method2014Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprises are such complex systems with their different organizational units and people working in the enterprise, with workflows and production pro- cesses, products and services offered to different customer groups, supplies and business partners, IT systems and production resources, etc. This book is about Enterprise Modeling, a technique that helps to capture the different elements and structures of an enterprise as well as to visualize the inter-dependencies between the elements. Enterprise Modeling can be used for a multitude of different purpos- es, like visualizing the current situation, analyzing the reasons for shortcomings or problems, developing strategies for business or IT, optimizing processes or setting up new co-operations with other enterprises. Enterprise Modeling offers a practical and flexible set of work procedures, tools and practices, which can be adapted to the situation at hand and to the pur- pose in focus. One of the main purposes of this book is to provide a “guide for ac- tion”, i.e. practical advice for how to address challenges in enterprises which can be solved or supported with Enterprise Modeling. The methods, tools and practic- es provided by the book are rooted in experience from many industrial modeling projects, but they also have a solid theoretical foundation from research in the field.

    A Comparative Analysis of Concepts for Capability Design Used in Capability Driven Development and the NATO Architecture Framework2017In: Advanced Information Systems Engineering Workshops: CAISE 2017 International Workshops, Essen, Germany, June 12–16, 2017, Proceedings / [ed] Andreas Metzger, Anne Persson, Springer, 2017, 27-38 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently an approach for information system design and delivery according to run-time context has been developed. It uses the concept of capability to express the organization’s ability and capacity that enables it to achieve a business goal in a certain context, and hence is denoted Capability Driven Development (CDD). The concept of capability has also been used in other approaches because it facilitates business investment focus, it can be used as a baseline for business planning, and it directly leads to service specification and design. For example, several Enterprise Architecture frameworks have included capability as a key concept for analyzing organization’s abilities to deliver desired functions. A notable contribution in this area is The NATO Architecture Framework (NAF), which aims at being a de facto standard for organizations operating in the areas of NATO. This paper analyses the possibilities of mapping the CDD concepts to NAF concepts that are relevant for capability design.

    Capability Driven Development of Context-aware Enterprise Applications – Challenges, Approach and Experiences2015Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprises are facing the need to adapt their businesses according to various situations in which their applications need to be used. To answer this challenge an EU FP7 project “Capability as a Service in digital enterprises” (CaaS) has been initiated. The aim of CaaS is to support the capture and analysis of changing business context in the design of information systems (IS) using the capability notion. Capability is seen as the ability and capacity that enables an enterprise to achieve a business goal in a certain context. The key rationale behind a capability driven approach is to capture the dependence of organizational and IS designs on application context and to provide explicit support for run-time adjustments according to changes in the application situation. The CaaS project is developing a methodology and a tool environment for capability driven development. We envision to further advance the service oriented paradigm and to develop context aware business capabilities by using Enterprise Modelling techniques as a starting point of the development process, capability design patterns for reuse of best practices, as well as composition of required capabilities and algorithms for run-time adjustment. This talk will address the main principles of the capability driven development methodology, as well as present the current experiences of capability design in three use case companies of the CaaS project – SIV AG (Germany) for business process outsourcing, Fresh T Limited (UK) for compliance management, and Everis (Spain) for capability management in e-government platforms.

    Capability Driven Development – an Approach to Support Evolving Organizations2012In: The Practice of Enterprise Modeling: 5th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference, PoEM 2012. Proceedings / [ed] Kurt Sandkuhl, Ulf Seigerroth, Janis Stirna, Berlin/Heidelberg: Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2012, 117-131 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The need for organizations to operate in changing environments is addressed by proposing an approach that integrates organizational development with information system (IS) development taking into account changes in the application context of the solution – Capability Driven Development (CDD). A meta-model for representing business and IS designs consisting of goals, key performance indicators, capabilities, context and capability delivery patterns, has been proposed. The use of meta-model is exemplified by a case from the energy efficiency domain. A number of issues related to use of the CDD approach, namely, capability delivery application, CDD methodology, and tool support also are discussed.

    Abstract [en]

    The field of Enterprise Modeling (EM) consists of many methods and method development is one of the key activity areas of EM practitioners and researchers. This paper ponders on future improvements for one EM method, namely Enterprise Knowledge Development (EKD). A number of improvements to the EKD method are identified and discussed, based on empirical observations. The improvements fall into four categories: the modeling language, the modeling process, tool support, and other improvements. The paper can be seen as a step towards a new and improved version of EKD.

    Abstract [en]

    Much of the success of projects using Enterprise Modeling (EM) depends more on the quality of the process of modeling rather than on the method used. One important influence on the quality of the modeling process is the competency level of the experts responsible for the EM approach. Each EM project is, however, specific depending on the purpose of modeling, such as developing the business, ensuring the quality of business operations, and using EM as a problem solving tool. The objective of this paper is to discuss the core competency needs for the EM practitioner and to relate those needs to different purposes of EM.

    Supporting Perspectives of Business Capabilities by Enterprise Modeling, Context, and Patterns2016In: Perspectives in Business Informatics Research: 15th International Conference, BIR 2016, Prague, Czech Republic, September 15–16, 2016, Proceedings / [ed] Václav Řepa, Tomáš Bruckner, Springer, 2016, 262-277 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary enterprise information systems (IS) need to be sustainable in order to provision long-lasting functionality in the presence of changes in customers’ demand, varying environmental aspects, regulations, and many other factors. A key challenge is the need to adjust according to changes at run-time of the IS because not all of them can be anticipated and elaborates at the design time. Lately, the notion of capability has emerged in IS engineering as an instrument that integrates organizational development with IS development, taking into account changes in the application context of the solution. To this end, a methodology and a development environment have been elaborated with the concept of capability in focus, under the name of Capability Driven Development (CDD). It encompasses three key perspectives of organizational design – Enterprise Modeling, context modeling, and pattern modeling. The objectives of this paper are to present how the key perspectives have been incorporated in the CDD methodology, how the methodology has been supported by the CDD environment, and how the methodology and the environment have been used in practice. The application of the proposed approach is discussed for two business cases – outsourcing of energy management services at SIV AG (Germany), and e-government service portfolio provisioning at Everis (Spain).

    Abstract [en]

    The notion of capability has emerged in Information System engineering as the means to support development of context dependent organizational solutions and supporting IT applications. To this end the Capability Driven Development (CDD) approach has been proposed. CDD currently focuses on designing and running applications that need to be adjusted according to changes in context, which can be seen as capability support on an operational level. This paper proposes a method component of CDD for strategic capability modeling in order to support business planning. The proposed component is to be used to analyze the organization’s capabilities on a strategic level, including aspects of collaboration with other enterprises. Its application in four companies is outlined and one application of capability design for the industrial symbiosis platform presented in detail.

    A Comparative Analysis of Using the Capability Notion for Congruent Business and Information Systems Engineering2017In: Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly, ISSN 2255-9922, no 10, 1-20 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The notion of capability has been gaining a growing attention in the business and information system (IS) engineering community due to a number of reasons: it facilitates focus on business investments, it can be used as a baseline for business planning, and it directly leads to service specification and design. It is not however widely known to what extent capability is considered in different modeling approaches, how it is defined, and what purpose it fulfills. This article analyzes how the notion of capability is included in the frameworks spanning from business-oriented such as Business Architecture and Business Value Modeling, to the alignment-oriented represented by Enterprise Architecture (EA), and Enterprise Modeling (EM). The results of the analysis have shown that capability has widespread presence in the frameworks and that its conceptual meaning is largely similar, while the intentions and the mechanisms of its use differ, which raises stimulating opportunities for new contributions and improvements in the field.

    Modelling Business Capabilities and Context Dependent Delivery by Cloud Service2013In: Advanced Information Systems Engineering: Proceedings / [ed] Camille Salinesi, Moira C. Norrie, Óscar Pastor, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2013, 369-383 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Contemporary business environments are changing rapidly, organizations are global, and cloud-based services have become a norm. Enterprises operating in these conditions need to have the capability to deliver their business in a variety of business contexts. Capability delivery thus has to be monitored and adjusted. Current Enterprise Modeling approaches do not address context-dependent capability design and do not explicitly support runtime adjustments. To address this challenge, a capability-driven approach is proposed to model business capabilities by using EM techniques, and to use model-based patterns to describe how software applications can adhere to changes in the execution context. A meta-model for capability design and delivery is presented with the consideration to delivering solutions as cloud services. The proposal is illustrated with an example case from an energy efficiency project. A supporting architecture for the capability development and the delivery in the cloud is also presented.

    Abstract [en]

    Lately, the notion of capability has emerged in IS engineering as an instrument to context dependent design and delivery of business services. Representing core business functionalities of an organization, capabilities, and capability driven IS development can be seen as both – a shift beyond and complement to the widely established service-oriented engineering paradigm where needs of customers form the leading modeling and design perspective. To ensure the needs of business stakeholders for variety of business contexts that an organization faces, and thus facilitate successful systems delivery, capability-driven development needs a well-defined method for requirements engineering, as well as its confirmation in practices. In this paper a process for specifying requirements capabilities and their designs is proposed. An application of the proposed approach to the area of Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services. is carried out for the German company SIV.

    Aligning Communication Analysis with the Unifying Meta-Model for Enterprise Modeling2012Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Enterprise Modeling (EM) captures and represents organizational know-ledge in models that cover different views of the enterprise. The models can be leveraged in the development of information systems. Investigating how to use them as input to Model-Driven Development (MDD) is an open challenge. This paper explores how a holistic EM approach, represented by a unifying meta-model, can benefit from integrating with Communication Analysis, a communication-oriented business process modeling and requirements engineering method. As a first step towards an integrated EM-enabled MDD approach, the unifying meta-model and Communication Analysis meta-model are aligned. A set of guidelines for trans-forming models conforming to the unifying meta-model to Communication Analysis models are formulated. The approach is illustrated using of a lab demo.

    A Quality-Driven Methodology for Information Systems Integration2017In: Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly, E-ISSN 2255-9922, no 12, 39-65 p.Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Information systems integration is an essential instrument for organizations to attain advantage in today’s growing and fast changing business and technology landscapes. Integration solutions generate added value by combining the functionality and services of heterogeneous and diverse systems. Existing integration environments tend to rely heavily on technical, platform-dependent skills. Consequently, the solutions that they enable are not optimally aligned with the envisioned business goals of the organization. Furthermore, the gap between the goals and the solutions complicates the task of evaluating the quality of integration solutions. To address these challenges, we propose a quality-driven, model-driven methodology for designing and developing integration solutions. The methodology spans organizational and systems design details, providing a holistic view of the integration solution and its underlying business goals. A multi-view meta-model provides the basis for the integration design. Quality factors that affect various aspects of the integration solution guide and inform the progress of the methodology. An example business case is presented to demonstrate the application of the methodology.

    Identifying Quality Factors of Information Systems Integration Design2017In: Perspectives in Business Informatics Research: 16th International Conference, BIR 2017, Copenhagen, Denmark, August 28–30, 2017, Proceedings / [ed] Björn Johansson, Charles Møller, Atanu Chaudhuri, Frantisek Sudzina, Springer, 2017, 45-60 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Information Systems (IS) community has long recognized the importance of studying quality at various stages of the IS design process. Many studies target the quality factors at various stages of design and development. However, research about the factors that specifically affect the quality of IS integration remains largely fragmented. Existing quality frameworks fail to cover integration-specific factors. This motivates the need for a holistic model of integration quality. The paper proposes two artefacts to address this need. It explores the literature of related domains, including systems, model, and process quality to elicit the quality factors that are relevant in the context of IS integration. The factors can be used to evaluate the quality of integration solutions during design and development. The paper also proposes a quality model to describe the quality of the design components of integration solutions following the principles of model-driven development. The model enables the quality factors to be associated with other parts of the IS integration design. The proposed factors are evaluated with the help of expert feedback using a questionnaire, and the quality model is demonstrated with an example business case.
