SEMANTIC INTEROPERABILITY FOR E-BUSINESS IN THE ISP SERVICE DOMAIN

Jane Hall, Stefanos Koukoulas

Abstract

Enterprise interoperability is a challenging goal that has many facets, one of which being the need for cooperating enterprises to have a precise understanding of the information that they exchange with each other. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) collaborating in a virtual cluster to market, customize and provision services to customers require the same understanding of these services and their features. This paper describes the work being undertaken in the European IST project VISP (IST-FP6-027178) to meet this requirement. ISP services are being classified and formally specified and an ontology is being developed for the ISP service domain.
