Abstract

Enterprise Interoperability (El) has been recognized as a well-acknowledged application domain in which substantial progress has been made through EU- and national funded research. However, the lack of scientific foundations seems to hinder unlocking its real value and full potential to all its stakeholders. Taking into consideration the fundamentals in establishing a science, the multi-stage incremental evolution of neighbouring scientific domains is studied following a life cycle that can be described in comparison with the human development as: Infancy, Childhood, Adolescence, Young Adulthood, and Maturity. In the context of EI, the present paper investigates the pathway towards establishing a science base. Beginning with the Foundational Principles and the Core Concepts Formulation, the science base evolves through the Development and Extension, & Internal Enhancement and Exploration phases, and concludes to the External Enhancement and Exploration, & Popularization phase.
