Using Ontologies to Integrate Multiple Enterprise Architecture Domains [chapter]

Gonçalo Antunes, Artur Caetano, Marzieh Bakhshandeh, Rudolf Mayer, José Borbinha
2013 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
This paper proposes using ontologies to specify different enterprise architecture domains and to integrate and analyse these models.  ...  The demonstration shows that the architecture domains can be integrated and analysed through the use of ontologies.  ...  Cross-DSO integration occurs whenever more expressiveness is required to model a specific domain.  ...

An Ontology based Hybrid Approach to Derive Multidimensional Schema for Data Warehouse

M. Thenmozhi, K. Vivekanandan
2012 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Due to the diversity of data source data integration has become a challenging task. Data warehouse system plays a vital role to integrate the data for making important business decisions.  ...  Our framework uses a hybrid approach where the reconciliation of requirements and data source are done at the early stage of design.  ...  Based on this they derive the MIO (Multidimensional Integrated Ontologies) along with the knowledge from external ontology sources and domain ontologies.  ...

Ontology Development Strategies in Industrial Contexts [chapter]

Vladimir Tarasov, Ulf Seigerroth, Kurt Sandkuhl
2019 Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing  
The industrial context affects the process of ontology engineering in terms of business requirements and technical constraints.  ...  Such systems need to reflect the aligned business-IT view and create shared understanding of the domain. Ontologies are used as part of many knowledge-bases systems.  ...  Recommendation 2: In projects with many non-expert modellers as domain experts or end users, integrate a person/role with experience in explicating implicit knowledge or in participatory work.  ...

Ontologies for Semantically Interoperable Electronic Commerce [chapter]

Leo Obrst, Howard Liu, Robert Wray, Lori Wilson
2003 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
Finally, we discuss the interaction of ontologists and domain experts in the building of ontologies for business, and some of the tools available for developing ontologies.  ...  Second, we present arguments towards why 828 needs ontologies and the nature of the problems faced.  ...  With the use of ontologies, only M + N integrations have to be performed (each buyer or seller to the ontology). That is a huge savings in time, effort, and money for any business.  ...
