This paper describes the particular motivation for performance analysis in the do-main of Enterprise Information Systems (EISs) and argues that the Model Driven Architecture (MDA) is a suitable framework for integrating formal analysis tech-niques with engineering methods appropriate to the domain. The MDA permits natural and economical modelling of design and analysis domains and the relation-ships between them, supporting both manual and automatic analysis. It incorpo-rates the Unified Modelling Language (UML), which is extensively used to capture system designs. We present our general modelling approach and outline its use in relating models of Enterprise Java Bean (EJB) applications, annotated using standard profiles, to analysable formal models.
