Semantic Web Technologies and E-Business: Toward the Integrated Virtual Organization and Business Process Automation compiles research from experts around the globe, bringing business, managerial, technological, and implementation issues surrounding the application of semantic Web technologies in e-business to the forefront.

Reviews and Testimonials

"The semantic web technology is a set of tools to help business users of the World Wide Web develop meaningful shared vocabulary or ontologies leading to a standardization of terms and concepts related to the description of products, processes, and coordination mechanisms, both within and across enterprises. Contributors mostly in technical fields explain such aspects as a tool for designing and representing business processes, a communication model for knowledge sharing, and the development of an ontology to improve supply chain management in the Australian timber industry."
