Abstract:The maturity of the enterprise interoperability field does not match the importance attached to it by
many, both in the public as well as the private community. A host of models, paradigms, designs, standards,
methods, and instruments seems to be available, but many of them are only used in rather small
circles. Also, they constitute a poorly structured field, divided along disciplinary boundaries and filled
with competition and incompatibilities, which is therefore difficult to set foot in by enterprise interoperability
problem owners. This chapter proposes a scope and structure of an enterprise interoperability
profession by taking the enterprise interface as the pivotal concept. It then defines four perspectives on
such interfaces: design, transaction, implementation, and suprastructure. These four perspectives each
house a range of issues, which can be tackled by the enterprise interoperability professional by using
models and instruments. This chapter identifies and classifies such models and instruments and sketches
how a collection of these can be implemented and used.
