  6. 6. The ‘essence of Roadmapping’ <ul><li>Roadmapping, seen essentially as a Knowledge Management endeavour </li></ul><ul><li>Activities started with the definition of the overall knowledge organization </li></ul><ul><li>4 FInES Knowledge Spaces: </li></ul><ul><li>(i) Socio-technical, (ii) Enterprise, (iii) Enterprise Systems, (iv) Enabling Technologies </li></ul>•••
  7. 7. The 4 FInES Knowledge Spaces <ul><li>1. Socio-economic Space (SOCE) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the larger context in which enterprises operate. It includes topics such as: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the social responsibility of enterprises, the impact on the environment and their carbon footprint, until the system of values goes beyond the pure financial dimension. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2. Enterprise Space (ENTP) </li></ul><ul><li>the key traits of future enterprises, the emerging business and production models , new governance and organization paradigms, new forms of cooperation all geared towards the continuous innovation paradigm </li></ul>•••
  8. 8. The 4 FInES Knowledge Spaces (cont’) <ul><li>3. Future Enterprise Systems (ESYS) </li></ul><ul><li>ICT solutions and socio-technical systems aimed at supporting the emerging future enterprises. In essence: FInES, aligned with business needs and rationale identified for the future enterprises. </li></ul><ul><li>4. Enabling Technology Space (TECH) –ICT solutions, including knowledge representation, cooperation and interoperability , trust and security advanced services , etc., necessary for the development of FInES. In particular, ICT enabling solutions that be needed for the purpose of FInES. </li></ul>•••

  17. 17. 2. Enterprise Space key comments <ul><li>the “ value creating &quot; models (constellations) are replacing the traditional “value adding&quot; ones, such as value chain. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Inventive ” is a too demanding characteristic for an enterprise </li></ul><ul><li>Enterprise Engineering methods address low-level practical issues, missing the holistic socially interlinked trends </li></ul><ul><li>Humanities , natural sciences and the arts need to be considered in harmony to support a successful FI enterprise </li></ul><ul><li>Green Enterprise… enough! Better Recycling Enterprise </li></ul>•••
  18. 18. 3. The Future Internet-based Enterprise Systems <ul><li>This the Core Space , organised in three dimensions: </li></ul><ul><li>1. Knowledge Dimension , since before doing it is necessary to know, </li></ul><ul><li>2. Functional Dimension , to see what will be the main functions of a FInES, </li></ul><ul><li>3. Engineering Dimension investigate new development techniques, with a specific focus on software applications. </li></ul><ul><li>Each dimension will be articulated with its Research Challenges </li></ul>•••

  22. 22. The Science Base of FInES <ul><li>Much of the above Research Challenges need rigorous, well-founded approaches </li></ul><ul><li>In the future FInES researches it is highly advisable to include activities related to Science Base </li></ul><ul><li>Beyond EISB .
