Welcome to the Workshop on Engineering for Service-oriented Enterprise (WESE) which will be co-located with the ICSOC 2015 conference in November 16-19, in Goa, India. 

Present day enterprises often become service-oriented enterprises, which are comprised of a dynamic network of organizations that collectively provide services. In this context, we define a service as a self-contained unit of functionality that establishes a meaningful value to enterprises such as service performance, service customer, service producer, service delivery, etc.

Moreover, service-oriented enterprises need to negotiate many challenges, such as changes in the economic climate, mergers, acquisitions, innovation, novel technologies, and regulations. This involves enterprise transformation addressing digital transformation issues which are related to stakeholders’ experience, technology in process integration and new digitally-modified business models.

Enterprise engineering is the general term for an engineering based approach to architect, transform or develop service-oriented enterprises. Enterprise engineering is based on rationales of how an enterprise wants to use its organizational socio-technical systems, such as business processes and information systems.
