Short videos for decision-makers

Two videos are now available on this website. They aim to present the method from the point of view of decision-makers and from the perspective of business transformation. “Introduction to the Praxeme method“, by Pierre Bonnet, a successful entrepreneur. “What can the Praxeme method do for you?“, by Dominique Vauquier, creator and main author of the open method.

Recent lecture on Praxeme for microservice architecture

A team of researchers lectured on Praxeme for designing a microservice architecture, namely: Mihajasoa Léa Fanomezana, Laboratory for Mathematical and Computer Applied to the Development Systems (LIMAD), University of Fianarantsoa, Madagascar Nicolas Raft Razafindrakoto, Laboratory of Multidisciplinary Applied Research (LRAM), University of Antananarivo, Madagascar Andrianjaka Miary Rapatsalahy, Laboratory for Mathematical and Computer Applied to the Development Systems(LIMAD), University of Fianarantsoa, Madagascar Costin Bădică, Faculty of Automation, Computers and Electronics (ACE), University of Craiova, Romania Abstract: The changing needs of the enterprise require the manageability of its information system. Therefore, it is crucial to absorb these changes by orienting the design of the information system towards a modern architecture that decomposes the monolithic application into autonomous services. This paper proposes an enterprise architecture methodological framework to design the so-called microservice architecture known as MSA. Our approach is to describe the similarities between the MSA style of architecture and the service-oriented architecture known as SOA, the latter having a rich research literature focused on exploiting the methodology for designing services in a service architecture. The result of the comparative study indicates that the ideology for designing a SOA is identical as MSA which ultimately relies on decomposing applications into smaller components with a smaller … >>

The French government supports Praxeme

The DISIC (Interministerial Directorate for Information and Communications Systems) is attached to the SGMAP (Secretariat-General for Government Modernization, under the control of the Prime Minister). It is responsible for the transformation of the government information systems and of their convergence. It is in this context that the government information systems department supports the development of a French enterprise architecture method. This is why it supports the initiative for a public method. >>

“The ethical model of the enterprise”

Praxeme positions the definition of the enterprise values in the intentional aspect. It recommends a rigorous approach to these questions with separate analysis and design parts. The former consists in isolating the moral reality of the enterprise, to take advantage of it; the latter concerns the drafting of the discourse on the values (the societal responsibility of the enterprise…). This document gathers together the preparatory thinking with a view to developing the axiological (= concerning the values) procedures planned in the Praxeme method. It is available on the wiki. >>

CEISAR and the Praxeme Institute sign a common platform

CEISAR (Center of Excellence in Enterprise Architecture) shares common beliefs. It expresses them through a platform in seven points. CEISAR recommends structuring the operational model into three models, as show in the figure below. Like Praxeme, it isolates an abstract model, upstream from the organization and the processes. This approach is essential to ensure innovation in the organization and the quality of the information system. The arrows on this diagram show the links or determinations. The equivalences with the aspects of the Enterprise System are easily established. The components of the operational model as defined by CEISAR and their Praxeme equivalences. >>

The Prunay group

The Prunay group (Eurisk, Eurexo…) is specialized in insurance claims services. In order to standardize the information systems of its different subsidiaries, Christophe Maroni, its IS director, has launched a semantic modeling assignment. Its purpose is to extract the common core that can then be shared between claims domains, in particular construction and damages.   >>

Publication of the new Pragmatic aspect guide

The “Pragmatic aspect approach” guide completes Praxeme version 2. Based on the new version of the Enterprise System Topology, it specifies the relations between the pragmatic aspect and the intentional aspect and integrates the BPMN notation for process modeling. The use case description form and its comments have also been published. See the announcement page on the wiki. >>
