In the economic environment of today, Enterprises recognise the need and the competitive advantage interoperating with suppliers and customers in collaborative networks to develop innovative product-service solutions The I-ESA series of conferences has become a forum where research and industry meet to share ideas and experience, and to discuss problems, innovations and solutions of enterprise inter-operability.

The book contains the papers and the summarised discussions of the Workshops of the 8th International Conference on Enterprise Interoperability I-ESA 16, held March 29-30, 2016 at the University de Minho in Guimaraes, Portugal.

The papers presented are mostly originating from European or national ICT research projects. The topics are similar to that of the conference and aim at Enterprise Interoperability in research and applications in the fields Product Service Systems, Big Data, Interoperability of Cloud collaborative networks, Next Generation Enterprise Modelling and standardisation. Further, you may find the reports of four PhD works on Enterprise Interoperability from a co-organised Doctoral Symposium.
