Abstract: This white paper presents what we call the Adaptive Enterprise Framework (AEF) as a synthesis of this good work. The premise is that an end-to-end framework, such as AEF, in the context of MDA/BPMI, will provide a roadmap for achieving the elusive goal of business alignment and infrastructure agility. Combining this with the implementation of a service/component oriented architecture and effective change management will result in the realization of the roadmap. As the AEF is, in large part, a synthesis of work done by others, every attempt is made to properly cite the original thinkers for their work. In some cases this is difficult because the body of knowledge has evolved over time through a wide variety of practitioners, e.g., BPR and Value Chain Analysis.
