CALL FOR PAPERS
The 1stInternational Workshop on Towards Fully Enterprise 2.0 (FE2.0)
in conjunction with
8th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM2015)
This workshop would like to be an opportunity for researchers from both disciplines Business Process Management (BPM) and Web2.0 technologies (exemplified by social networks, online communities, collaborative systems, and crowd-based platforms) to discuss how enterprises could capitalize on these technologies so that a new generation of business processes can spread over the business and social worlds.
Today’s enterprises are caught in the middle of a major financial storm that is jeopardizing their profit, growth, and even survival. To respond to this storm, enterprises need to improve their business processes and align their development strategies with market needs. Regular enterprise applications like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain Management (SCM) implement structured business processes in which the steps to perform are well defined. Basically, there is a little room for creativity and innovation during the completion of these processes without triggering a complex re-thinking process that usually takes time to implement and see its effects, which is sometimes late and inefficient due to constant changes. Various on-the-fly decisions may be made based on unstructured data that people receive from various sources. Examples of sources include social media as part of the Big Data ``fever’’. An enterprise 2.0 is one that, in addition to having an online presence, strives to open up new communication channels with various stakeholders using Web2.0 technologies such as social networks, wikis, blogs, crowd-based platforms, and other emergent social systems. Different studies encourage enterprises to allow their employees to embrace social applications in order to establish and foster contacts with their colleagues, customers, and suppliers. However, the richness and complexity of information of these applications arise challenges on how enterprises should capture and structure this information for future use while preserving user’s privacy, ownership, and information sensitivity.
Topics of interest
This workshop aims at addressing the lack of techniques and guidelines that would enable enterprises to weave social elements into the life cycle of designing, developing, and deploying business processes. This should lead into social business processes that assist employees establish and maintain social networks of contacts, rely on some privileged contacts when needed, and form with other peers strong and long lasting social collaborative groups. In today’s economies, an enterprise’s ability to sustain its growth and competitiveness depends on how well it socially manages its communications with various stakeholders for instance, customers, suppliers, competitors, and partners.
Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
BPM for the enterprise 2.0
Standards for the enterprise 2.0
Methods for designing the enterprise 2.0
Crowd-driven business process management
Semantic technologies for the enterprise 2.0
Resource monitoring in the enterprise 2.0
Exception handling in social business processes
Guidelines and best practices for the enterprise 2.0
Privacy and security in the enterprise 2.0
Big data analytics for BPM
Context management in the enterprise 2.0
Supply chain management in the virtual enterprise 2.0
