Workshop on Resilient Enterprise Architecture - REA 2018


Digital transformation and digital disruption create many events that may impact enterprises and organizations. Resilience is the capability of enterprises to cope with these events. Resilience is an emergent capability because it is often achieved by combining a multitude of different perspectives on different abstraction levels such as organizational resiliency, information system resiliency, cyber resiliency, network andtechnology resiliency, as well as organizational resiliency.

Resilient enterprise architecture management plays an important role in fostering strategies and capabilities for resiliency by providing methods and tools for designing enterprises architectures in a resilient way. It may address enterprises but also selected parts of enterprise architecture such as services and processes. 

Resilient Services are services that provide additional meta-servicesin addition to their core functionality to cope with disruptive events. E.g. airlines reschedule passengsofdelayed flights. Resilient Processes provide event handlers to cope with external events and are thus capabableto lead back the control flow on the desired track even in the case of adverse events. Their decision points use data from a multitude of internal and external sources allowing them to detect and react to changes in the environment.

The Workshop on Resilient Enterprise Architecture – REA brings together academics, researchers, and practitioners to address fundamental and practical aspects of resilience enterprise architecture management in the context of digital transformation. 

We invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects. We encourage a broad understanding of architecting and modeling resiliency for information systems, including new ideas and research in progress.
