Towards Data Supply Chains in Enterprise Architecture Management

Kurt Sandkuhl and Matthias Wißotzki


This paper discusses the idea of transferring the concept of supply chains and value creation from material flows to data flows. The paper has a focus on enterprise architecture management (EAM) and the data required for EAM. Our proposal is to transfer the idea of supply chains from manufacturing to EAM by combining three different approaches (a) information demand patterns as means to express the information demand of organizational roles in EAM, (b) information logistics value chains as conceptual foundation for establishing the value creation steps required from the data supply chain, and (c) knowledge services as core elements of an architecture for EAM data supply chain. The paper presents workin-progress which so far primarily stays on a conceptual level. The research method used primarily is argumentative-deductive.
