Abstract

Nowadays, it becomes more and more critical and essential for the vendors in the business-related markets to tailor their products and software to meet the needs of the Small and Medium Businesses (SMB) since their market share has been enormously raised and the issues related to the Business-to-Business (B2B) environment are becoming great challenges to be considered. The semantic Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)-based model involves Semantic Web Services to be applied in business environments in order to have a consistent framework that makes the data understandable for both humans and machines. The ultimate goal for using the authors’ proposed model is to transfer the enterprise Web into a medium through which data and applications can be automatically understood and processed. The main components of the proposed model and the vision of applying it to one of the business solutions will be illustrated in order to show how these components can work together to overcome the traditional SOA-based solutions weakness.
