Modern enterprises increasingly face the challenge of keeping pace with regulatory compliances. Semantic disparity between regulation texts, their interpretations, and operational specifics of enterprise often leads enterprises to situations where it becomes difficult for them to establish what compliance means, how they are supposed to affect it in the operational practices, and how to prove that they comply when asked for explanations of (non-)compliance. We take a step toward reducing the semantic disparity by using semantic vocabularies to map regulations with available operational details of enterprise and utilize them in enacting compliance. We also propose to provide explanations of proofs of (non-)compliance. We report our ongoing work in this regard using the design science research (DSR) paradigm. Initial iterations of design cycle from DSR have been useful to us in identifying and matching stakeholder-specific goals in solving these problems.
