WORKSHOP SCOPE

Nowadays, in an interconnected society, there is a growing need for coordination among different organisations, asking for trustable solutions to develop enterprise systems.

Enterprise architectures integrate well-defined principle and practice for the analysis, design, planning, and implementation, for the successful development and execution of enterprise systems. To achieve an effective digital transformation, the organizations need to close the gap between business, information, processes and technology necessary to achieve their final strategy.

In such a field blockchain technology can bring huge advantages in many sectors, it can guarantee the integrity and immutability of data without relying on a central authority or any particular entity. Thus blockchain can be considered the enabling technology that guarantees a tamper-proof execution of contractual obligations among the involved organisations.

Both academia and industry are showing an increasing interest in the field of blockchain. However, for a large adoption of this technology, recent challenges should be addressed, especially for what concerns the support of multiple blockchain platforms and the generation of the related smart contracts, breaking the technological barriers for non-expert users.

The scientific results of the workshop have the ambition to change the way one thinks, designs and implements enterprise systems. From the technical perspective, the workshop can contribute to breaking the technological barriers for wider use of the blockchain, proposing novel approaches for the definition of enterprise systems. Conceptual, technical, application-oriented and case study contributions are welcomed within the themes of this workshop.
