The Global University Alliance
The Global University Alliance was founded in 2004, and is a non-profit organization and international consortium of university lecturers and researchers whose aim it is to provide a collaborative platform for academic research, analysis and development and to explore leading practices, best practices as well as to develop missing practices. The Global University Alliance currently consists of 450+ universities, lecturers and researchers from across the world and is growing rapidly in size and scope.
The Global University Alliance aims to align intellectual resources across the academic world to:
- RESEARCH: Address research concerns and questions that span around enterprise ontology and thereby the enterprise concepts, design, functions, tasks, information handling and governance and the relationships between those concepts within enterprise modelling and enterprise architecture disciplines.
- UNIVERSITY CURRICULUM: Develop university curriculums for both Bachelor and Master level (existing BPM, SOA, Enterprise Architecture, Sustainability, Information Management and Project Management).
- DEVELOP STANDARDS: Package applied academic research and findings into frameworks, methods and approaches that can be used by industries and universities alike.
- COMMUNITY SHARING: Share and publish the findings either in publications or to this open standard community.
The Global University Alliance promotes a new way of thinking, working and modelling combining the much needed connection between Enterprise Modelling (e.g. Business Model/Competencies, Value Management, Services Model, Performance Management, Process Notations, Measurements, Information Management and Rules) with Enterprise Architecture (e.g. Business Architecture, Value Architecture, Service Oriented Architecture, Process Architecture, Information Architecture, Technology Architecture and Solution Architecture).
This will enable all organizations regardless of industry to build on common leading principles to identify, create and realize value in both the business and IT composition.
