Enterprise Modelling techniques and associated visual languages are very important and useful to support new approaches to business transformation and improvement in developing smart organisations and the networked organisations of the future. Visual Enterprise modelling, architecting, integration, operation and management are now providing new approaches to IT solutions development. The Main Objective of the UEML - Unified Enterprise Modelling Language project is to provide an unified and extendible modelling language. For this purpose, the project aimed at: (i) creating a European consensus on a common modelling language in order to facilitate inter-operability within the frame of on-going standardisation efforts. An initial common language representing this consensus has been defined in terms of a core set of modelling constructs. (ii) building an UEML demonstrator to promote, test, validate and improve the proposed Modelling Language Constructs. (iii) preparing the launching of a project to define, implement, and promote the complete UEML. All of these objectives have been fulfilled. Moreover, UEML resulted in a considerable set of classified enterprise modelling requirements.
Network of Excellence INTEROP (2004-2007)
Goals of Interop are :
the emergence of a lasting European research community on interoperability of enterprise software applications,
to create the conditions of an innovative and competitive Technology Transfer by bringing upstream conceptualisation of business-based interoperability,
to achieve by the end of the project the integration process which will assemble knowledge components (Ontology, Enterprise Modelling, Architectures and Enabling Technologies) and prepare a lasting center of competence on Enterprise Interoperability with maximum research and audience.
We participate also to several european contracts (ITEA EAST, KVM).
