Businesses today are rapidly recognizing that information assets are a resource that belongs to, and can be more effectively used by, the enterprise as a whole to realize major advancements in competitiveness. Attempts to leverage and reuse these assets, however, have long been plagued by the inability of our information systems to adapt and evolve gracefully to a changing environment.

An Integrated Development Support Environment IDSE provides a system which supports user-driven development and evolution of information systems through graceful change to both 1 the information needs to be supported, and 2 the degree and types of automation. This report describes the design concepts for an IDSE centering around a scalable architectural design strategy enabling enterprise-level evaluation towards the desired levels of integration, automation, and sophistication....
