Strengthening the Four Pillars of the Advanced Enterprise through Semantics; Data, Processes, Resources, and Access
Data management, process management, access management, and resource management form the four pillars of the advanced computing enterprise. This includes critical technologies such as databases, web services & service oriented architectures (SOA), mobile devices, and cloud computing. Semantics helps adapt and unify them to your current enterprise to allow rapid adoption and effective use.
We outline and demonstrate the potential contributions of Semantics to each of the four pillars. The contributions exist along two dimensions; making each pillar operate more effectively and making semantics work more effectively through effective implementation of the pillar. This provides you with choices as to how focus your needs with potential semantic contributions.
We end by establishing an incremental, iterative plan outlining risks and benefits to allow you to gracefully incorporate Semantics into these critical enterprise areas.
- Host semantic solutions in advanced enterprise technologies
- Enrich key enterprise technologies with semantic extensions and enhancements to improve efficiency, effectiveness, functionality, and quality.
- Identify semantic opportunities in the enterprise.
- Outline a pragmatic plan for semantic enrichment
