The Semantic Web: A Key Enabler to Enterprise Vocabulary Management – TopQuadrant

Controlled vocabularies, taxonomies and thesauri have been in use in a wide variety of organizations for decades. With the information explosion fueled by the internet, the importance of these organization structures has become more and more apparent. The problem isn’t where to find vocabularies or how to build them; on the contrary, enterprises typically find that they have several mini-vocabularies, each tuned to a special purpose or business need, just as so-called “folksonomies” have appeared in popular websites.

Using Semantic Web Technology to create an active Enterprise Architecture – TopQuadrant

Enterprise Architecture (EA) captures “what is happening” in the enterprise: how the enterprise’s activities, processes, capabilities, systems and components, information resources and technologies relate to the enterprise’s missions, goals and measurement system. The objective of EA is to be able to understand the relationships between these elements — analyze and continuously adjust them to align with business strategy, improve effectiveness and quality of service. This is an important goal critical in today’s enterprises where business functions are inseparable from the technologies supporting them. However, the implementation of EA typically falls very short of the goal.
