kBOS history of development

The initial kBOS design was based on research on the integration of business modelling and information systems. The base line technology was the intelligent enterprise platform developed by ENTERPRISE project.

project was in 1995 the UK government's major initiative to promote the use of knowledge-based systems in enterprise modelling, aiming to support organisations effectively in the Management of Change. The Enterprise Toolset implemented an Enterprise integration framework with an agent-based architecture was used to integrate off-the-shelf tools in a plug-and-play style. The components of the Enterprise Toolset were: a Procedure Builder for capturing process models, an Agent Toolkit for supporting the development of agents, a Task Manager for integration, visualisation, and support for process enactment, and an Enterprise Ontology for communication.


From September 1997 K-Net established the initial BOS prototype in the DAMAS project (EP 25411) which developed dynamic link technology facilitating the development of management information systems from dynamic models by:

  • describing, in an object-oriented fashion, key processes and information used by managers to respond to business change (termed business intelligence)
  • designing a Business Objects Architecture which defines at a top level Business Intelligence objects and at a lowest level software components


The DAMAS BOS prototype established a management dashboard allowing non technical managers to obtain the information they need for dynamic decision making at the corporate strategy level and at the operational level using a task assistant tool responsible for initialising, starting, controlling and monitoring management task execution transferring information between tasks using business objects.


The kBOS 2.0 released in September 2003 has incorporated the customer feedback from many international companies that adopted the BOS technology over the past few years. An extensive research programme undertaken by K-NET and INLECOM have aided the development. The key projects are listed in the following table.
