Author: Katz, Robert L
ProQuest document link
Abstract: Business-enterprise modeling studies were conducted with 9 IBM customers using what are now
called computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tools. There was added value for every customer that
utilized the approach of business-enterprise modeling. The benefits of the value of this type of modeling include
both quantitative and qualitative perspectives. Qualitative benefits include: 1. greater precision and enlarged
scope, 2. identification of opportunities to improve business processes, and 3. production of an integrated
systems architecture. Quantitative benefits include actual dollar savings resulting from: 1. cost avoidance of
consultant services, 2. less time devoted to these studies, and 3. savings in the time required for application and
database design.
