Description & Coverage
Description:

There are increasing opportunities to consider the application of semantic technologies for business information systems. Semantic technologies are expected to improve business processes and information systems, and lead to savings in cost and time as well as improved efficiency.

Semantic Technologies for Business and Information Systems Engineering: Concepts and Applications investigates the application of semantic technologies to business and information systems engineering. This reference work assists researchers in academia and industry, students, business process analysts, information management professionals, software engineers, and other practitioners in gaining knowledge on applying semantic technologies for advanced business information systems, in annotating semantics to business processes, and in semantically integrating advanced business information systems.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications of semantic technologies
  • Business interoperability issues
  • Business process annotation techniques
  • Business process intelligence and process mining
  • Metrics for semantic conceptual models
  • Ontology languages for advanced business information systems
  • Semantic annotation of conceptual models using ontologies
  • Semantic Interoperability
  • Semantic Web services and service-oriented architectures
  • Standardization efforts in ontology engineering
Reviews and Testimonials
