I International Workshop on Digital Transformation in the Enterprise

This workshop will be held in parallel with CISTI 2019, in Coimbra, Portugal, between 19 and 22 of June 2019.

Scientific Scope:
Modern Enterprises rely on computer-based information systems, which comprise  hardware and software. Enterprise software applications or information systems are increasingly complex, to match the also increasing competitiveness  and complexity of the markets and organizations environments. Enterprise software supports business processes from the factory plant to the enterprise strategic administration, and even crosses the borders of an enterprise enabling integration between business partners across a given business value chain.  Enterprise software includes today, not only the already common ERP, CRM, SCM  and many other application types, but also Manufacturing Execution Systems,  Management Information Systems, Executive Decision Support Systems, and Smart Industry (cyber-physical) systems comprising software and dedicated hardware designed together, bringing IoT into the enterprise. All these kinds of enterprise systems support a part of the business functions of the enterprise, and this latter has lots of advantages of having these systems talking with each other, being integrated inside the enterprise and across business partners in a
business value chain.

Topics of interest:
  – Enterprise Software and Systems Engineering
– Tools, Techniques and Methodologies for Enterprise Systems Development
– Business-ICT Alignment
– Integration Middleware
– Integration of Enterprise Systems (including Legacy Systems)
– Service Oriented Architecture
– Enterprise Cloud-based Systems and Services
– Mobile Application Backend Services
– Distributed and Parallel Enterprise Applications
– HCI on Enterprise Information Systems
