London Underground (LU) manages over 250 stations, 400km of track and over 1 billion passenger journeys per year. Recently, following it’s acquisition of MetroNet Rail, LU have had to integrate and rationalise its information systems. This was guided by using an Enterprise Modelling (EM) approach outlined in this presentation. Topics also covered include:

  • Enterprise Architecture (EA) versus Enterprise Modelling (EM).
  • Managing service and application portfolios using heuristics and metrics.
  • SOA and BPM in an EM/EA context.
