The field of semantics has a long history, both philosophically as well as in its more recent adoption in Information Systems. The challenge of semantics is in solving the search for meaning. In business terms, this translates into clear definitions of key business assets. In operational terms, this translates into technical models and making sure that the (meta)data is understood and aligned.
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is leading the “Semantic Web” and “Linked Data” initiatives, which promote various XML-based recommendations for semantics: RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language). This work has been aligned with Object Management Group’s (OMG’s) recently approved standard to describe the semantics of business vocabularies, business facts and business rules (SBVR). It is clear that these can benefit from new developments such as the Social Web and Web 2.0, which provide fresh insights into the issues in semantics, and vice versa.
This presentation will provide an overview of the field of semantics, where we are now, and where we are going. It will explain how semantic technology becomes relevant to solve core issues in information management, how semantics can be used from business all the way to operational ICT, and how professional communities inside and outside enterprises can manage their ontologies in a ‘Business Semantics Glossary’.
