Unleashing the Potential of the European Knowledge Economy, Value Proposition for Enterprise Interoperability, Version 4.0

Funded under: FP6-IST, FP7-ICT


The purpose of the present report is threefold:
- To develop a value proposition for Enterprise Interoperability, in support of meeting the Grand Challenges in the Enterprise Interoperability Research Roadmap. In particular, as the Roadmap is expected to evolve through the joint efforts of the stakeholders, the report is intended to provide a source of guidance and inspiration to the development of future version(s) of the Roadmap.
- To fine tune the EI value proposition in relation to the different categories of stakeholders. In particular, because enterprises must be the primary beneficiaries of EI solutions, the first focus is on the users of EI and the second focus is on the providers of solutions.
- To serve as an input to the refinement and update of Objective 1.3 in the next version of the FP7 ICT Work Programme, 2009-2010.
The overall context of this report is long-term, goal-oriented, problem-solving and publicly financed research in the field of Enterprise Interoperability in accordance with the time horizon of FP7 (7 year plus). It is not the purpose of this report, which is a publication of the European Commission, to provide (1) advice on value proposition for interoperability endeavours of specific organisations; (2) blueprints of business models for the purpose of achieving commercial success by individual enterprises; (3) guidance on the research and development of specific solutions that help enterprises to interoperate; and/or (4) value analysis of individual EI solutions or offerings. Specifically, it is not the purpose of this report to address implementation or technology adoption issues under the umbrella of ¿e-business¿, or the day-to-day operation and market concerns of e-business activities.
