<p>An organizational framework for integrated CASE development and research that is based on the reference model for integrated software-engineering environments being developed by the NIST and the European Computer Manufacturers Association is proposed. Services defined in the reference model permit three forms of integration: data integration, control integration, and presentation integration. The reference model, which describes a wide range of CASE environments, and frameworks, can guide standards development and serve as a basis for educating software engineers. The organizational framework divides systems development and management into three activity levels: IS infrastructure planning and design is undertaken at the enterprise level, systems project management and decisions are made at the project level, and software-development processes are carried out at the individual and team level. The ways in which the organizational framework, which complements the technical framework, can guide the development and deployment of integrated CASE environments, direct future research, and help CASE users select and configure tools in an integrated CASE environment are discussed.</p>
