The market of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) applications has changed into a complex landscape of heterogeneous systems in recent years. Consequently, it has become increasingly challenging for enterprises to identify a PLM application that meets their requirements and that can be successfully integrated into their existing IT systems.The approach presented in this paper aims at developing a decision-supporting model of the IT system landscape that provides different analysis tools based on existing IT systems. The model which is expressed by an ontology is intended to represent data flows between the different IT applications in order to provide relevant information through requests and rules in further proceedings.
