Student thesis: Master typesMaster in Computer science


Business Strategies have been used in the domain of economics for many years now, with the goal of improving an enterprise’s position in a market. They were solely used in economic domains, since they didn’t translate well into an information systems (IS) world. This is the
reason for the use of a goal modelling language, which by definition is used to represent the way goals for various actors are achieved. Understanding how to translate business strategy notions into goal modelling ones, but also finding adequate business strategies that could be
translated into goal models and making these translations or mappings available in a modelling environment for easier use, would result in the ability of representing business strategies in IS domains and thus solving the problem mentioned above. Our work focuses on the use of
the goal modelling language i* to represent three different business strategies, Strategy Maps and Balanced Scorecards, Blue Ocean Strategy and Value Configuration, as well as the use of the modelling environment ADOxx for the creation of the mapping library.
