Abstract [en]

In this paper a set of successful Enterprise Application Integration projects are analyzed andcommon characteristics are identified. These characteristics are then distilled into a set of keysuccess factors. The empirical foundation for this study is the active participation in a number ofsuccessful EAI projects, as a consequence thereof we classify the research method as actionresearch. We can note that common key success factors are the use of common canonicalformats for data exchange, open source and ESB for EAI infrastructure, enterprise integrationpatterns, and the establishment of an integration competency center. The possibility to enablesuccessful and maintainable EAI should be of crucial interest for basically all of todaysbusinesses, where we only see an increased need for successful EAI both in a business as well asin a business to business perspective.

Abstract [en]

Governments world-wide are applying information and communication technology in order to meet a broad range of citizen and organizational needs. When planning systems integration the choice should lead to the software that best suits the organizational needs, taking into account price, quality, ease of use, support, reliability, security and other characteristics considered important. This paper is based on experiences from the KOMpiere project which aims at modifying the open source licensed ERP-system Compiere for use in Swedish municipals. The overall goal of the project is to support and enhance the use of open source licensed software in the Swedish public sector and thereby enable municipals to lower their IT-related costs and gain strategic control over their own IT-environment. We discovered that at least some Swedish municipals dont have free access to the data they are appointed to govern and protect. The software vendors have, by using non-open data standards, excluded the municipals from using their own data freely. Thereby denying Swedish municipals an open market. We have in this paper suggested the creation and usage of XML-based ODS for all systems in Swedish municipals

Abstract [sv]

Denna avhandling är en kvalitativ studie av hur organisationer kan förenkla och förbättra arbetet med kravspecificering vid anskaffning av komponentbaserade informationssystem. Avhandlingens utgångspunkt är att mer verksamhetsnära och användbara informationssystem kan anskaffas genom att använda en integrerad verksamhetsmodell där verksamhetsanalys och kravspecificering slås samman. Fyra kunskapsområden har studerats och analyserats för att generera ett ramverk som riktar uppmärksamhet mot relevant innehåll och utformning av en integrerad verksamhetsmodell, 1) verksamhetsprocesser 2) verksamhetsmodellering 3) mjukvarukomponenter och 4) specificering. Avhandlingens empiri representeras av en rekonstruktion av den komponent- och processorienterade anskaffning av ett komplett vårdinformationssystem som genomförts i Landstinget i Värmland. Analyser i respektive kunskapsområde har skett utifrån ansatsen Multi-Grounded Theory vilket innebär en teorigenerering utifrån en växelverkan mellan existerande teorier och empirisk grundning. Några exempel på kunskapsbidrag är ett vidareutvecklat processbegrepp samt en ny livscykelmodell för komponentbaserade informationssystem. Utifrån kunskapsbidragen inom respektive kunskapsområde har integrationspunkter identifierats som legat till grund för utveckling av ramverket för en verksamhetsnära kravspecifikation. I avhandlingen dras slutsatsen att genom att integrera arbetet med verksamhetsanalys och kravspecificering skapas bättre förutsättningar för att kravspecifikationer speglar de behov systemen är avsedda att uppfylla och att gapet mellan krav och lösning minskar genom ett bättre underlag för kommunikation mellan kund och systemleverantör.



Ramverket pekar på att en verksamhetsnära kravspecifikation utformas i en integrerad processmodell som beskriver verksamhetsprocesser utifrån identifierade generiska processbegrepp samt ett scenario för användning och en klassificering av funktionalitet. Kravspecifikationen bör, enligt ramverket, även innehålla en systemöversikt, kommersiella och leverantörsrelaterade krav, design- och arkitektoniska krav samt utförandekrav. Ramverket har prövats och vidareutvecklats utifrån en extern validering i form av en utvärderingsworkshop där ramverkets relevans och användbarhet diskuterats utifrån de erfarenheter och den dokumentation som genererats i Landstinget i Värmland.
