In this research project we investigate how blockchain technologies can be used in the domain of enterprise modeling. Thereby it is of particular interest how the information stored in semi-formal and formal conceptual models (e.g. business process models, enterprise architecture models, ontologies) can be stored and processed in a blockchain.
The following publications in this context have so far appeared:
