Andreas L. Opdahl, Ph.D.
Professor of Information Systems Development
Head of the Information Systems (IS) Group
of Information Science and Media Studies
University of Bergen
My main research interest is development, management and use of
enterprise models which support IS development and
operations, in particular enterprise models for
interoperability between enterprises and their information systems.
I focus on models and languages that integrate the various
perspectives of stakeholders tightly and that may embed
multiple partial models for different uses and
My main current research projects are:
- Unified Enterprise Modelling Language (UEML):
I am involved in the development of a unified modelling language for
enterprises and their information systems.
For details on UEML, see the uemlwiki.
- Security requirements:
I participate in the NFR-funded ReqSec project (2008-2011), a
collaboration with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU).
For details, see the Misuse Case Wiki.
- Mobile information systems for knowledge workers:
I am involved in the NFR-funded Model-Driven
Multi-Channel Mobile Work (M3W) project (2006-2010), also a
collaboration with the Norwegian University of Science and
- Process-modelling practice in Norway (PMP):
I am collaborating with the Norwegian School of Economics and Business
Administration and Agder University on studies of practical process modelling
Other research interests are:
- Security requirements determination (since 2000)
- Ontological analysis and evaluation of
enterprise and IS modelling languages (since 1998)
- Facet modelling (since 1994)
- Understanding Information Systems Architecture (since 1994)
In the past, I have also carried out research on software
performance evaluation (on which I did my Ph D) and several other
