Abstract

This article provides a condensed overview of a layered and model-driven system architecture that empowers domain experts to set up and customize collaborative information systems without programming based on layered business-oriented conceptual models. This architecture emerged from a decade of iterative research, design, development, and technology transfer projects which focused on individual modelling and system construction activities. This paper puts these results and publications into a larger architectural perspective, explains the rationale behind this architecture, and argues to consider it as a reference architecture for model-based collaborative information systems in general.
