Today’s enterprises are caught in the middle of a major financial storm that is putting at risk their profit, growth, and even survival. To respond to this storm, enterprises have launched different initiatives to improve their business processes and align their development strategies with market needs, for example.

Regular enterprise applications like Enterprise Resource Planning and Supply Chain Management implement structured business processes in which the steps to perform are well defined. Basically there is little room for innovation during the completion of these processes without triggering a complex re-thinking process that usually takes time to implement and see its effects, which is sometimes late and inefficient due to business constant changes. Several decisions are to be made on the fly based on unstructured data that people receive from various sources. Some of these data are part of people's tacit knowledge.

This special session aims at discussing the latest developments in social model-driven engineering techniques that would help inject social elements into enterprises’ applications. This should be done by capturing social relations between the enterprise’s stakeholders and abstracting these relations using dedicated models. Later on these models are converted onto executable software programs. These programs will reinforce the fact that employees establish and maintain social networks of contacts, rely on some privileged contacts when needed, and form with their peers strong and long lasting social collaborative groups. In today’s economies, an enterprise’s ability to sustain its growth and competitiveness depends on how well it socially manages its communications with various stakeholders for instance, customers, suppliers, competitors, and partners.
