Abstract [en]

Open Access (OA) research provides a platform to world-wide knowledge sharing, but the channels and possibilities are still limited. It is not always clearly defined how the process of publishing should take place. Information systems architectures are intrinsically complex engineering products that can be defined graphically on various levels of abstractions and represented using different aspects of the system. For that reason enterprise architecture is not easy to comprehend for different actors involved. Graphical representations of different business scenarios are critical to understand how different aspects of the system descriptions are analysed in relation to each other and how requirements from different perspectives are perceived as a whole. The goal of this paper is to introduce the modelling method for visualization of the process of publication of BSc thesis into institutional repositories. Universities need to investigate undergraduate students’ publications of their graduate work (BSc thesis) to promote knowledge of university repositories. Two different modelling methods were used to visualize publishing process and two case studies at two different universities were made. The results indicated and motivated that SICM method had more semantic power to visualize business process in a more comprehensive way.

Abstract [en]

Abstract. To obtain value from the graphical representations that are used by different stakeholders during the system development process, they must be integrated. This is important for achieving a holistic understanding about system specification. Integration can be reached via modelling process. Currently, most of information system modelling methods present different modelling aspects in disparate modelling dimensions and therefore it is difficult to achieve semantic integrity of various diagrams. In this paper, we present the principles of semantically integrated conceptual modelling method for information system analysis and design. The foundation of this modelling method is based on interaction flows. This way of modelling is critical for the identification of discontinuity and inconsistency in information systems specifications. It also provides possibility to integrate business processes and business data, which is necessary for the integration of various architectural domains and to reach the holistic view of enterprise architecture. We have explained in object-oriented terms how interactive, structural and transitional aspects are merged. We also demonstrated the interpretation of various patterns, in terms of semantically integrated conceptual modelling method. It was shown that the method has sufficient expressive power to cover some special cases, which do not match the standard pattern of transaction. The inference rules of interactions help in reasoning about system decomposition. In this method, decomposition is graphically described as classification, inheritance or composition of concepts. SICM method is based on a single type of diagram, which enables reasoning about integration with the help of a special set of inference rules. The ultimate goal of this paper is to present the generic principles for computation- neutral modeling of service interactions.

Keywords: Conceptual modelling, Modelling aspects, Service interactions, Consistency, Value flows, Inference rules, Decomposition, Object transitions.

Abstract [en]

System modeling patterns are similar to workflow patterns, which were established with the purpose of delineating the requirements that arise during business process modeling on a recurring basis. Traditionally, only dynamic aspects are used for the specification of modeling patterns leaving aside the static aspects of business processes. The paper presents the conceptual modeling patterns where integrity of totally different aspects can be analyzed. The advantage of such a modeling approach is that it enables visualization and integration of different modeling dimensions of information system specifications using a single diagram. Many graphical representations do not allow such visualization and integration of static and dynamic aspects. We also represent graphically interpretation of the conversation for action schema by constructs of our semantically integrated conceptual modeling method.

Abstract [en]

Managing evolutionary changes, identification of discontinuities and separation of concerns is not an easy task in the area conceptual modeling in information system development. One of the fundamental problems is that most conventional conceptual modeling techniques deal with the collections of loosely linked meta-models, which are defined by the different types of diagrams. Typically, system development methods project interactive, behavioral and structural aspects of information systems conceptual representations into disparate views. Therefore, the semantic integrity of various architecture dimensions is difficult to achieve. In this paper we present semantically integrated conceptual modeling method. The advantage of this method is stability and flexibility of the diagrams to manage the constant changes of system requirements. This method provides possibility to visualize the interplay among structural, interactive and behavioral aspects. This is very important for the control of semantic integrity and to maintain a holistic representation, where external and internal views of service conceptualizations are visualized together. Such visualization is also important for separation of concerns which provides foundation for creation of modeling patterns. Modeling patterns are important for several reasons. First, they can be used for demonstration of the interplay of fundamental constructs that are used for system analysis and design. Secondly, modeling patterns are important for the evaluation of the expressive power of semantic modeling languages. It is demonstrated by case study examples that sequential, underlying, enclosing, overriding and overlaying interaction loops between actors provide the foundation for the composition of complex scenarios, which are spanning across organizational and technical system boundaries.

Abstract [en]

According to fundamental principles of the Privacy by Design approach, the consultation of privacy issues should be embedded into analysis and design of information systems, from the early stages of system planning to implementation. In this article, we extend this perspective towards Privacy and Security by Design. Exemplary focusing on mobile and pervasive emergency response, as a specific area of the emergency management domain, this article conveys how the early requirements elicitation can be supported by a semantically integrated conceptual modeling method. Presenting the results of the exemplary executed elicitation processes, it contributes a concrete set of security and privacy requirements for mobile and pervasive emergency response settings. By also taking into account conflicting security goals, this article provides a substantial grounding for the development and deployment of multilaterally secure pervasive ICT that effectively supports emergency management during and in the aftermath of critical response missions.
