Abstract

Many interoperable frameworks have been suggested, developed, and implemented in the past. Most of them are based on XML, web services, and semantic web technologies. In the meantime, globalization and the further development of internet and web have raised new challenges and opportunities. New form of networked organizations, known as virtual enterprises, seeks for knowledge sharing around common goals. The rise of the social and ubiquitous world, where everything is going to be connected, gives a lot of technical opportunities for electronic business, but at the same time makes new barriers due to increasing heterogeneity issues. This chapter gives an overview of main challenges, obstacles, approaches, recent research efforts, and forecasts in order to overcome recent interoperability problems.

The Issues And Challenges Of Enterpsise Interoperability

The Web is the backbone of a new social era -a more open, global, ubiquitous, and pervasive platform. People, software, and things are part of a new era in which almost “everything” will be socially connected as shown in Figure 1. We refer to it as the Social World. The complexity of social world calls for mutual understanding of all entities involved. Besides many initiatives, ideas, and particular platform-to-platform solutions, connecting all by mutual understanding and self-learning capabilities is yet a big challenge (Dorloff & Kajan, 2012).
