Pierre Bonnet is co-founder of Orchestra Networks, leading software company in the area of MDM (Master Data Management), has founded Sustainable IT Architecture. Pierre Bonnet is also co-author of the enterprise method Praxeme. Pierre states: “Nowadays IT industry has strong assets to actually overhaul information systems. Thanks to the three principles of our community, we can secure large IT projects that target strong return on investments: SOA maturity matrix, ACMS (Agility Chain Management System) and enterprise method with Praxeme. This method is complementary with best practices such as TOGAF (Open Group) but also other guidelines such as ITIL, COBIT, and CMMI. This method provides us with modern guidelines to design large-scale information systems, and relies on UML and MDA standards.
The agility concern is a key point. We must concretely implement agility and it requires a proven method and tools dedicated to business users, not only to IT people. In this arena, we are convinced that the connection between MDM, BRMS and BPM is prominent: no processes without rules, and no rules without reference and parameters management". Orchestra Networks provides the community with strong enterprise MDM software that manages all kind of referential data and parameters at a large-scale.

Today's needs for more capable enterprise systems in a short timeframe are leading more organizations toward the integration of existing component-systems. In the domain of Enterprise Modelling and more generally on Systems Engineering, the key issue is related to aligning enterprise models with the composite structure of the modelled systems. While Enterprise Modelling matures both scientifically and technologically, it is clear that its practice is still uncommon in the enterprises. There is no modelling approach in enterprise, neither even capitalization of models. This paper aims at proposing a Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) approach, by using the recursion principle, together with a “multiple scales system thinking”, for capitalizing the engineering know-how, over time, during a project lifecycle. In this context, we advocate that, within an enterprise, the heterogeneous set of Information Systems may be considered as COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf), encapsulating their own expertise (engineering), and contributing all together to a single System-of-Information System (SoIS). We are then proposing a SoIS engineering methodology resulting from deriving our MBSE approach with a recursive view of the Zachman framework. This approach, based on modelling rules and enterprise modelling constructs, is contributing to ensure the consistency and the completeness of the various heterogeneous models interoperating during systems engineering projects. To validate our MBSE proposal, a modelling tool has been prototyped. It helped at applying our SoIS engineering methodology in a use case scenario related to the requirement analysis and the specification of a product traceability system. See the complete survey here.
