Abstract: Information systems must be able to quickly adapt to changing requirements. In software development, changing the requirements often entails a repetition of development tasks such as implementation or testing. To accelerate such tasks, model-driven development (MDD) offers users to express their requirements as domain models and to automatically generate code from these models. Most MDD approaches, however, require users to learn new tools and languages. Thus, MDD has found little adoption beyond a few niches and most code is still written by hand, which is slow, costly, and error prone. In this paper, we propose an approach to using existing business artifacts as reusable models in software development. These models can be either transformed into executable code, or they can be used as functional modules using an interpreter. This approach allows product owners to update requirements and build information systems by having the behavior and logic of existing business artifacts immediately reflected in the software, which drastically increases business agility. We validate our approach with a proof of concept for automatically transforming existing business logic and domain data encoded in an Excel document into a web service and generating a web-based user interface for it.
