An approach for interoperability assessment in networked enterprises

Abstract : Nowadays, enterprises are progressively collaborating with each other and participating in Networked Enterprises (NE) for dealing with challenges such as globalisation, new technologies, and financial crisis. In some cases, these enterprises have to plan coherent transformations to develop and implement effective interoperations, while working uninterruptedly. Interoperability, in this context, is a crucial requirement allowing the proper collaboration between members of a network. As soon as it is not achieved; Enterprise Interoperability (EI) becomes a problem that needs to be solved. With the intent to avoid EI problems, enterprises can benefit from the use of assessment approaches, allowing the measurement of strengths and weaknesses regarding interoperability. However, the proposed approaches in the literature have limitations such: (a) covering only one application context (b) focusing on specific areas of interoperability and (c) not representing the interdependencies of such areas. Hence, the objective of this research is to propose a new assessment approach covering the different areas of interoperability and its relationships for providing guidance regarding EI transformations within a NE.
