VR-EA+TCK: Visualizing Enterprise Architecture, Content, and Knowledge in Virtual Reality

  • A complex and dynamic IT landscape with evermore digital elements, relations, and content presents a challenge for Enterprise Architecture (EA). Disparate digital repositories, including Knowledge Management Systems (KMS), Enterprise Content Management Systems (ECMS), and Enterprise Architecture Tools (EAT), often remain disjointed. And even if integrated, insights remain hindered by current visualization limitations, making it increasingly difficult to analyze, manage, and gain insights into the digital enterprise reality. This paper contributes our nexus-based Virtual Reality (VR) solution concept VR-EA+TCK that enhances and amalgamates EAT with KMS and ECMS capabilities. By enabling visualization, navigation, and interaction in VR with dynamically-generated EA diagrams, knowledge/value chains, and KMS/ECMS digital entities, it sets the groundwork for stakeholder-accessible grassroots enterprise modeling/analysis and future collaboration in a metaverse. An implementation shows its feasibility, while a case study demonstrates its potential using enterprise analysis scenarios: ECMS/KMS coverage in the EA, business processes, knowledge chains, Wardley Maps, and risk analysis.
