1. Bio (Summary)
He was Bouygues Telecom's CIO from 2001 until 2006. As Chief Information Officer, Yves Caseau was in charge of the overall strategy and development of the IT divisions of Bouygues Telecom. His main task was the re-engineering of the back-office through EAI (entreprise bus) and BPM (business process management) technologies.
His main scientific interests are open system architecture, game theory, complex systems and business activity models (from cost forecast to market simulation), including stochastic and game-theoretical models. From a more general perspective, his themes of interest include organization theory, social networks, CMC (computer-mediated communication) and information flows.
Until November 1st, 2001, Yves Caseau was the corporate Director of New Technologies at Bouygues (Corporate Headquarters) and Director of the Bouygues "e-Lab", providing key technologies and vision to Broadcast and Telecom subsidiaries of the Bouygues Group. Dr. Caseau has been a major contributor to strategic tasks such as the re-engineering of the IT systems architecture of Bouygues Telecom or the on-line optimization of advertising revenue.

An almost complete bibliography is compiled on the DBPL site. From it, you may derive my historical list of topics of interest. For instance, I have a strong interest on topics such as rule-based languages and object-oriented programming. More recent papers deals with enterprise architecture, application integration and "autonomic middleware".
I wrote a first book on "Enterprise Architecture, SOA and Business Process Management" in 2005 (Dunod), which tells the story of "urbanisation" at Bouygues Telecom between 1999 and 2005.
I wrote a second book "Information System Performance" (Dunod) that came out in February 2007. Part of this book deals about enterprise organization and information flows, a topic for which I have opened a blog (a summary in French may be found here). This second book is available in English under the title "Information Technology for the chief executive". The new (second) edition is entitled "Le SI démystifié".
hobbies: writing books, simulation software and the CLAIRE language. My main job, at this stage of the CLAIRE project, is fixing bugs ... once in a while. I am more into finite-event simulations and various kinds of weird models these days (see my research agenda). I have a few non-technical hobbies such as cooking or playing (poorly) the piano. I like sports (mountain bike, swimming, skiing, jogging) but my back disagrees with me ... so I had to stop martial arts which I really loved.
