Recent years have witnessed rapid advances in the areas of Business Process Reengineering(BPR) and Software Engineering. In order for BPR to work, successful deployment of Information Technology is imperative, with the lack of adequate IT support being cited as the single largest impediment in BPR projects. Furthermore, new business concepts such as extended enterprises and agile enterprises which build upon basic BPR call for even more complex software support in an ever-changing global business environment. This paper addresses these problems and proposes a framework which supports the design and development of information systems which support business processes in the extended enterprise.
