The industrialised countries are living in an crucial phase for theireconomies and social systems. Computers and digital technologies havetraditionally played a central role for the development of the socio-economicsystems, and of enterprises in particular. But if the socio-economic scenarioundergoes profound changes, also the enterprises need to change and,consequently, enterprise computing. In the next decade, enterprise softwaresystems cannot continue to evolve along the beaten paths, there is an urgentneed for new directions in the ways enterprise software is conceived, built,deployed and evolved. In this paper we illustrate the main outcome of theFuture Internet Enterprise Systems (FInES) Research Roadmap 2012, a study on the future research lines of enterprise systems, promoted by the FInESCluster of the European Commission (DG Information Society and Media).
