Conference Paper
Full-text available
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) becomes more important and non-evident when confronted with the growth of complexity. The evolvability of the EAI solution itself decreases over time due to Lehman's law. This case report describes and evaluates the architecture (model and principles), governance, solution design, and realisation, which are...

This whitepaper describes part of our vision we call Sensemaking Architecture. A vision that is based on our understanding as experienced enterprise architects about sensing and perception, managing complexity, applying ethical thinking. In this paper we add to this vision a way to translate the purpose of an organisation to a way of working for en...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current VUCA worlds demands from organisations to be resilient and sometimes even antifragile. The domain focusing on staying relevant is that of risk management. Information security is a sub-domain of risk management where the threats and response to the threats are very well documented. Within the sub-domain of information security there is...

Organizations operate in a socioeconomic context, and alignment with this context is key for business success. The rate of change and impact of these changes on the operating model of the organization appears to be increasing. Major trends are the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2008, the "VUCA" aspects (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, am...

The .com crisis of 2000, the financial crisis of 2008 and the COVID-19 crisis of 2020 show us the importance for organisations to become resilient or even antifragile to survive (unexpected) external stressors. Research states that the current VUCA world will expose enterprises to more and more stressors. Resilience is the way how a system bounces...


Question (1)
Context: I want to execute a systematic literature review, and apply bibliometrics/ citation tracking and analysis by creating a citation graph and citation matrix.
Tooling: The toolchain at this moment is manual creation of BibTex files and then automated creation of the graph via bibgraph3. Bibliometrics then can be achieved via Bibliometrix and Biblioshiny.
The library of MIT has curated a nice list of relevant databases containing informaton on publications. This list in combination with Goodreads/ Worldcat would make it possible to create data-richt BibTex objects. MIT list included: arivm, CrossRef, DPLA, IEEE, Scopus, Web of Science and more. https://libraries.mit.edu/scholarly/publishing/apis-for-scholarly-resources/
Question: Does anybody know of a Python Wrapper containing a number of the mentioned API's listed by MIT?

Learn to what different views there are on emotions. Research how emotions can be included in the design of an organisation, since in Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Engineering this might be overlooked.
When adopting the defintion of Antifragile by Taleb. What is the impact on organisational design for an organisation to become antifragile. This includes the questions: "Does it add value?", "What are the bennefits and costs?", "Do we want to, do we need to?" etc. This topic is closely related with organization resilience and adaptability.
