Publisher Comments:

A strategic guide to the revolutionary framework that will change the way you do business

Imagine if you could teach your computer to make decisions that lead to faster B2B trading implementations, more effective customer management, and seamless data warehousing. Now, your imagination can be turned into reality. This authoritative book explores the Semantic Web, a revolutionary new framework for creating intelligent software applications that automate the processes of reasoning and decision-making. The Semantic Web first shows you how to vastly improve knowledge management in your company using Semantic Web technologies. You’ll then gain a clear understanding of the building blocks of these technologies, including XML, Web services, and the Resource Description Framework (RDF).

Along the way, you’ll be taken through the process of building the Semantic Web at your company in order to achieve a significant return on investment.

This informative guide arms you with the strategies you’ll need to know in order to start creating a host of robust new business applications. Written by leading experts in the field, it:

  • Explains how businesses can leverage the Semantic Web for competitive advantage
  • Covers all aspects of current Web services, RDF, and XML-related technologies including the emerging Web ontology language (OWL)
  • Examines taxonomies and describes how they are implemented using illustrative examples
  • Discusses how to attain semantic interoperability using ontologies
  • Describes how to design a knowledge-centric organization

The companion Web site contains source code for all listings in the book, a code appendix, and links to related sites.

Includes bibliographical references (p. 255-263) and index.

Synopsis:

The Semantic Web is a new paradigm that's intended to make computers smart enough to manipulate data on our behalf without human intervention. This book provides an authoritative overview of a new framework for developing intelligent software applications. With coverage both of how the Semantic Web works technically as well as how businesses will be able to use it for competitive advantage, it is perfect for both strategic decision makers as well as software architects and developers who need to translate strategy into action.
