In order to open-up enterprise applications to e-business
and make them profitable for a communication with other
enterprise applications, a business model is needed showing
the business essentials of the e-commerce business case
to be developed. Currently there are two major business
modeling techniques - e3-value and REA (Resource-Event-
Agent). Whereas e3-value was designed for modeling value
exchanges within an e-business network of multiple business
partners, the REA ontology assumes that, in the presence of
money and available prices, all multi-party collaborations
may be decomposed into a set of corresponding binary
collaborations. This paper is a preliminary attempt to view
e3-value and REA used side-by-side to see where they can
complement each other in coordinated use in the context of
multiple-partner collaboration. A real life scenario from the
print media domain has been taken to proof our approach.
