How Semantic Web technologies support Business Activities
Defining ‘‘Context’’: Within an organization, a ‘‘context’’ has its own knowledge
resources, business processes, and definitions for terms. A small accounting company may have some small functions for marketing and HR, but its primary context will be ‘‘accounting.’’ For a large multinational on the other hand, there are independent knowledge bases and processes for different departments.
Defining ‘‘Concept’’:Within an organization, certain activities may be conceptual, and others are not. Simple calculations are not conceptual, but developing a corporate strategy.
- Activities where concepts and conceptual understanding are important: For example, reviewing legal documentation or contracts, or searching information for concepts. and data related to the topic of focus. Generically speaking, activities where the actor is trying to interpret, infer, augment, and aggregate information
- Activities that span a diverse range of business contexts: For example, working across R&D, marketing, and operations departments to develop a new product line. Generically speaking, activities that help discover, harvest, create, present, transmit, or act across diverse knowledge resources and business processes
