Since the 70’s, information systems are penetrating all organizations at a more and more fast pace. After the automation of administrative tasks, followed by the computerization of the core business processes, the Internet arrival opened a new era of communication and information sharing.
This new phenomenon does however not only impact companies, but the modern society in its whole. The development of the domestic use of computers, that started with the personal computer at the end of the 80’s, was tremendously increased by the Internet which connected all citizens both together and with various organizations and sources of information. This revolution continues nowadays with mobile terminals and new personal uses which are at the heart of what is called today, the Digital World.
The new digital challenges are clearly based on the dynamics of progress of three basic information & communication technology (data storage, information processing, communication networks) that are now mature. As a consequence, making the technological advances closer to the new uses that they daily allow, becomes a newcentral issue of the emerging Digital World. The competitiveness of modern enterprises will in particular rely more and more on the ability to create new digital value chains, using their technical infrastructure and their information systems which are clearly key to be able to face these new challenges.
We thus understand that the development of digital technology imposes to permanently be able of integrating coherently a strategic vision (business models), an end-users vision (digital practices and uses) and a technological vision (technology capabilities and limitations) to deliver efficiently digital services to the largest number. This is exactly the key purpose of Enterprise Architecture that intends to define coherent integrated models covering these various visions.
We therefore believe that it is crucial to create a meeting at international level, opened to all academic researchers and professional practitioners who are interested in the design and the governance of digital systems from an Enterprise Architecture perspective. The “Digital Enterprise Design & Management (DED&M)” conference meets exactly this objective. It aims to become the key place for international debates, meetings and exchanges on the Enterprise Architecture dimension of the digital business. Our event namely intends to put digital issues at the heart of its program, but also to bring together all business and technological stakeholders of the Digital Enterprise.
This is why the DED&M conference scope integrates both the digital customer & business dimensions (new digital customers behaviors, digital strategies, proposal and distribution of digital value, digital marketing, digital resources management and governance, digital corporate partnerships, etc.) and the underlying technological dimension (information & communication technology, information systems architecture, database & software engineering, systems and networks engineering, etc.).
The scope of the conference covers the following topics:
- Culture & digital uses,
- Digital strategies,
- Models of the digital economy,
- Digital property,
- Digital customers,
- Marketing & digital distribution,
- Extended digital enterprise
- Activities & digital resources,
- Norms & standards.
Digital corporate governance

- Consortia, industrial policy & sectorial regulation,
- Governance of information systems,
- Strategic alignment,
- Digital transformation of enterprises,
- Tracks & digital master plans,
- Management of portfolios of digital projects.
Architecture & engineering of digital business
- Enterprise architecture,
- Urban development of information systems,
- Architectural modeling (business, functional, application & technical architecture processes),
- Collaborative architecture of organizations,
- Management of programs & digital projects
- Interoperability of information systems,
- Metrics of complexity & quality
