ESAO: Towards data- and ecosystem-driven R&D
Paper in proceedings, 2014
With the increasing rate of change in industry, companies need to manage their internal alignment between strategy, software architecture and organizing R&D as well as with their ecosystem more proactively. Lack of alignment is the root cause of many problems experienced in the software-intensive systems industry. The ESAO model provides a framework for addressing the aforementioned challenges. It provides an internal perspective as well as an ecosystem perspective and for each perspective offers a strategic, architectural and ways of working dimension. ESAO offers tools for each of the dimensions as well as mechanisms for establishing and maintaining alignment.
