SEMANTIC FRAMEWORK FOR INFORMATION INTEGRATION - Using Service-oriented Analysis and Design

Prima Gustiené, Irina Peltomaa, Heli Helaakoski

Abstract

Today’s dynamic markets demand from companies’ new ways of thinking, adaptation of new technologies and more flexible production. These business drivers can be met effectively and efficiently only if people and enterprise resources, such as information systems collaborate together. The gap between organizational business aspects and information technology causes problems for companies to reach their goals. Information systems have increasingly important role in realization of business processes demands which leads to demand of close interaction and understanding between organizational and technical components. It is critical for enterprise interoperability, where semantic integration of information and technology is the prerequisite for successful collaboration. The paper presents a new semantic framework for better quality of semantic interoperability.
