Abstract

Enterprise architectures comprise of complex transactional information systems that perform repetitive and bespoke business transactions to meet business goals. Frameworks for enterprise architectures have been widely adopted to organise design thinking about the architectural components as well as to provide a description of architecture artefacts. We note various shortcomings of these framework approaches, giving rise to how semantics and pragmatics should evolve in enterprise architectures through Transaction Agent Modelling (TrAM). We accordingly outline steps for capturing and modelling the semantics in business transactions for enterprise architecture.
