Abstract : Documented are the results of a study performed of the state-of-the- art with respect to systems analysis and modeling methods and tools which aid in the integration of distributed corporate resources. One major source of data regarding the state-of-the-art was a survey conducted of industry, tool developer/vendors and academia. The survey and other data sources are described in this document. The scope of state-of-the-art assessment activities under this ITKM project was focused on tools and methods to support enterprise analysis and modeling, particularly in the context of enterprise information integration. Given that breadth of context, as well as the tendency towards increasingly blurred boundaries among the various information technologies utilized for enterprise integration, some of the data in this document relates to areas outside the traditional realm of enterprise analysis and modeling methods and tools. For example, broader methods and tools such as: information frameworks and architectures; repository/data dictionary technologies; Computer-Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tools; re-engineering methods and tools, including those for integration, access and migration of legacy databases; and systems development life-cycle methodologies were also included in the study, at least to some degree.
