The growing impact of IoT and Blockchain platforms on business applications has increased interest in leveraging large enterprise systems as Cloud-enabled microservices. However, large and monolithic enterprise systems are unsuitable for flexible integration with such platforms. This paper presents a technique to support the re-engineering of an enterprise system based on the fundamental mechanisms for structuring its architecture, i.e., business objects managed by software functions and their relationships which influence business object interactions via the functions. The technique relies on a heuristic for deriving business object exclusive containme..
