The III International Workshop on Digital Transformation in the Enterprise will be held in parallel with CISTI 2021, in Chaves, Portugal, between 23 and 26 of June 2021.

Scientific Scope:
Modern Enterprises rely on computer-based information systems, which increasingly comprise complex elements of interaction with both the users and the environment in which they are installed. Enterprise information systems are increasingly complex, to match the also increasing competitiveness and complexity of the markets and organizational environments. Enterprise software supports business processes from the factory plant to the enterprise strategic management plan, and even crosses enterprises’ borders, by 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 Cyber-Physical Systems (Smart Industry), comprising software and dedicated hardware designed together, bringing IoT into the enterprise and into the supply chain. Each of these types of systems supports a specific business function, being their integration a major advantage inside the enterprise and across a business value chain.
