A critical success factor for Enterprise Application development is to
get the systems specifications validated early in the planning and
development process. Specification errors that are identified early on
in the process are easier and less costly to fix. However, all too
frequently business users only discover the impact of specifications
once a system is deployed. It is therefore important to provide
business users with representations of the future system that enable
them to quickly catch the ramifications of current application

Enterprise applications supporting a given business process need to be
able to react quickly to changes in market, operational and legal
requirements. Therefore, it is insufficient to rely on an early or even
periodic synchronization of system specifications with business needs.
Rather development methods must support a continuous validation and
traceability of system specifications against business needs. This in
turn requires an enhancement of current system specification techniques
such as business process modeling, service modeling (SOA), data
modeling, use case modeling,and user interface design in order to
support continuous validation. For some application domains end-user
driven development with situational applications and mash-ups builders
will enable rapid synchronization of IT systems and business needs.

Another critical success factor is ensuring that Enterprise
Applications are business-aligned. This can be achieved when models of
business strategy and business operations are at the right level of
abstraction to support efficient analysis of current business
operations, applications and IT infrastructure. Business subject matter
experts, transformation specialists and IT specialists are then able to
engage in meaningful analysis of changes to business operations
reflected in current and future state scenarios. Thus, current
techniques for business and IT modeling need to support efficient
analysis of business strategy and operations, and application

This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to share
knowledge and experience on solutions for current challenges on
modeling techniques and tools that support the early, precise, and
continuous validation of application specifications by business users,
and on aligning applications with business needs in an effective
manner. Foremost, we intend to strengthen the foundations of this
emerging area by merging the scientific and industry points of views.
We explicitly welcome the submission of case studies, and empirical
studies that show how tools and modeling techniques impact the ability
of business users to validate Enterprise Applications specifications
early in the development cycle and support the continuous traceability
of business needs.



The topics include, but are not limited to:

- Software development and evolution in the perspective of enterprise  
modeling and alignment.
- Methodologies and frameworks for creating and maintaining enterprise  
application alignment.
- Business process alignment and SOA.
- Business-driven requirements elicitation and traceability
- Business process modeling
- Business operations simulation
- Enterprise application mapping
- Enterprise Architecture and Application Design
- Agent- and Goal Oriented Modeling
- Representation of architectural and business constrains
- Business-driven specification languages, methods, processes, and tools
- Business process reengineering and application alignment
- Case studies and experiences with business-driven enterprise  
- Innovative solutions for the business-driven enterprise applications  
- Business driven design and implementation of social software
- Situational applications and Enterprise Mash-up
