THE SNARE ARCHITECTURE OVERVIEW - Social Network Analysis and Reengineering Environment

Alexandre Barão, Alberto Rodrigues da Silva

Abstract

Social network systems identify existing relations between social entities and provide a set of automatic inferences on these relations, promoting better interactions and collaborations between these entities. However, we find that most of existing organizational information systems do not provide in a native way, social network features, even though they have to manage somehow social entities. The focus on this paper starts from this fact, and proposes the SNARE system, short for “Social Network Analysis and Reengineering Environment”. The SNARE’s purpose is to promote social network capabilities in information systems not designed originally with that purpose. The paper overviews the architecture of SNARE system and discusses its applicability through different approaches.
