Enterprise Modeling with UML: Designing Successful Software Through Business Analysis with CDROM (Addison-Wesley Object Technology)by Chris Marshall
Synopses & Reviews
The convergence of object technology and business systems methodologies has led to a new discipline: business engineering. The goal of business engineering is to improve the performance of an enterprise through formal modeling, the application of appropriate concepts, best practices, and information technology.
Written for practitioners interested in business systems and software applications, this book fuses object technology, workflow, data warehousing, and distributed system concepts into a coherent model that has been successfully implemented worldwide. Enterprises using these concepts are well-positioned to thrive in the emerging global business arena. Enterprise Modeling with UML describes specific methods for modeling large, complex, and adaptable enterprise systems, using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to illustrate its concepts and components.
Enterprise Modeling with UML addresses in detail the four key elements of an enterprise model: purpose, processes, entities, and organization. Written from a business perspective rather than technical standpoint, the book covers such vital topics as:

The author has managed the design and development of information systems using object technology for some 10 years.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Marshall fuses object technology, workflow, data warehousing, and distributed systems concepts into a single coherent model that is sufficiently simple for most readers to understand. Accompanying CD-ROM contains software tools and an extremely valuable set of business objects to support the analysis, design, development, implementation, and maintenance of enterprise-wide information systems using distributed object technology.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 233-238) and index.
