  1. 1. Design Science Evaluation for Enterprise Architecture Business Value Assessments Martin Meyer, Markus Helfert BSC 2013 Riga
  2. 2. Agenda • Motivation and Research Question • Enterprise Architecture Business Value Assessments • Design Science Research (DSR) – Focus on Evaluation – MAID • Further Research • Summary and Conclusion • Discussion 2 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  3. 3. Motivation and Research Question • Enterprise Architecture Business Value (EABV) not entirely understood • EABV assessment methods need to be evaluated • Design Science Research (DSR) evaluation methods not detailed enough  How can we best evaluate an EABV assessment approach in a DSR context? 3 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  4. 4. EABV Assessments - Overview 4 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  5. 5. DSR – IS Research Framework Adapted from Hevner et al. (2004) 5 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  6. 6. DSR – Research Process – Artifact Build Cycle 6 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  7. 7. DSR – Evaluation Phase • Evaluation – Demonstrate Artifact Preliminary Results – Evaluate Artifact Evaluation Report 7 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  8. 8. EABV Assessment - Artifacts • IT Artifacts to solve problems and satisfy business needs – EABV Assessment Method (EABV AM) • EABV Framework (EABV FW) • EA Balanced Scorecard (EA BSC) (based on Kaplan et al. 1996) • EABV Measurement Process (EABV MP) (based on ISO/IEC 2007) • EABV Model (EABV M) 8 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  9. 9. Measurement And Infrastructure Diagnostic (MAID) • Categories for Criteria – M & A planning – Data collection and storage – Data analysis – M & A reporting 9 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  10. 10. MAID – Example Criteria 10 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  11. 11. Future Research – Case Study • Continue evaluation in organizational context – Over several periods – Facilitate benchmarking capabilities • Evolve artifacts – Improve integration, and thereby automation – Adapt to changing business function – Artifact versioning 11 © Business Informatics Group 2013
  12. 12. Summary and Conclusion • Provided a flexible research process cycle – – – – Clear defined phases, sub phases, and deliverables Clear roles and responsibilities Foundation for artifact evolvement Suitable method for DSR evaluation • Huge benefit for project management and collaboration – Flexible adaption to changing environment – Phases allow for milestones including deliverables – Easier to collaborate due to common understanding of research process – Adequate evaluation method for application in organizational context 12 © Business Informatics Group 2013
