By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- Researchers detail new data in Software and Systems Research. According to news originating from Enschede, Netherlands, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In this study, we argue that important IT change processes affecting an organization's enterprise architecture are also mirrored by a change in the organization's business model."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research, "An analysis of the business model may establish whether the architecture change has value for the business.

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Our approach is accompanied by a method that supports business model-driven migration from a baseline architecture to a target architecture and is demonstrated by means of a case study."
