Abstract [en]

Abstract: As enterprises become increasingly information centric, making improvements in their information management activities becomes their top priority to assure their continuing competitiveness. The current problems related to enterprise information modelling seem to concern incompatibilities, poorly understood standards, codification and incoherent use of organisational information objects. We argue that the technical architecture and design, as well as the organisation, processes and knowledge dimensions, by which the Enterprise Information Model (EIM) is developed, managed, used and sustained all are equally important. Our business focus suggests us to view information as a corporate asset and by doing so it becomes natural to strive for increased return on information investments, hence “Return on Information“. The research aim was to examine the possibility of a generic model to depict and describe an organisation's information to support the understanding and management of the information. The main conclusions are that an EIM can be developed. The model construct must be built on aspects from different research domains, resulting in a multifaceted holistic model. The flexibility of the model suggests the model to have generic capabilities and support the management of information and leverage higher “Return on Information”. Implementing an EIM which stops at just documenting “as is” status is of no value. The critical success factors for implementing an EIM is to integrate into existing processes, organisations, roles and responsibilities to ensure the sustained maintenance of the model and its content. The model as such allows a stepwise implementation both related to choice of model dimensions and components as well as to choice of information objects
