Juhnyoung Lee will speak on productivity tool for business on April 9 as part of the JPMorgan Chase & Co. Spring Speaker SeriesMarch 27, 2009Kelly Homan Rodoskikahoman@syr.edu
The JPMorgan Chase & Co. 2009 Spring Speaker Series at Syracuse University continues on Thursday, April 9, with Juhnyoung Lee of the IBM Corp.
Lee will speak on the topic of “Business Transformation Workbench: The Fundamental Things Apply” at 2 p.m. in the Katzer Collaboratory, Room 347 of Hinds Hall. The lecture is open to the public.
Business Transformation Workbench is a productivity tool for business consultants to analyze business performance, to identify transformation opportunities and to assess the business value of specific transformation initiatives. The tool helps visualize the linkages of various enterprise models, such as the business component model (CBM), the business process model, the value driver model, the organization model, the IT application model and the solution model. It captures the direct linkages between these models and infers and presents the indirect linkages, thereby providing valuable insight on how changing one aspect of an enterprise impacts the others qualitatively.
Lee is a research staff member in the Business Informatics group at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center in New York. He received bachelor’s and master’s degrees in computer science from Seoul National University and a Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Virginia.
Since joining IBM Research in 1997, Lee has worked on e-commerce intelligence, electronic marketplaces, decision support systems, semantic Web technologies and ontology management systems. Before joining IBM, he was a researcher at Los Alamos National Lab in New Mexico and at Lexis-Nexis in Ohio. His current research interests include service engineering and management, business and IT modeling, and model-driven business transformation.
