To cut expenses and save time, enterprise crowdsourcing is more and more used to disseminate corporate tasks, which are traditionally performed by a small group of people, to an undefined large workforce within and beyond the boundaries of a company. However, harnessing the positive effects of crowdsourcing faces several challenges, such as the efficient and proper assignment of a crowdsourcing task to an available and competent group of workers, or the securing of the integration and reuse of crowdsourcing data across heterogeneous business applications. To overcome these challenges, a semantic standard for enterprise crowdsourcing is developed and its applicability is shown by evaluating it against three diverse scenarios that may occur in real business environments. The proposed standard finally includes fifteen semantic elements to describe a crowdsourcing task and eight elements to define a user.
