Fremont, California (PressExposure) September 03, 2013 -- Description:
Semantic interoperability is such a huge problem that organizations have considerable difficulty in understanding where to begin when they are trying to mitigate it. Chief Information Officers believe that integration can take up anything between 30 and 60 percent of their IT budgets.
However, the silver lining is that despite its being a problem of such gargantuan proportions; it doesn't have to be fully resolved for the organization to start having a substantial positive impact. An econometric study conducted by Visa suggests that modest improvements in semantic interoperability have the potential to measurably increase global GDP.
This seminar describes techniques for improving semantic interoperability that are starting to make their way into industry. It places an emphasis on the approaches that are relatively simple to implement and yet provide real business value. It provides the means to implementation of the first steps, subsequent to which the organization can be put on a path whose next steps, are also incremental yet valuable. This webinar will cover the following areas:
-The current state of the art in data integration - what we have achieved, and what remains to be tackled
-The business impact of the lack of semantic interoperability on data integration complexity and costs
-New techniques for improving semantic interoperability, leveraging international standards
-How the new techniques are being incorporated into key finance and business reporting standards to which the presenter has been a major contributor
-Avoiding unnecessary disruption to the traditional data modeling process
-How the techniques leverage business vocabularies
-The relationship of the techniques to semantic technology such as the Semantic Web
-Applying the techniques to service-oriented architectures
-Applying the techniques to big data
-Keeping it simple: Identifying the approaches that are most achievable in the short to medium term and yet provide substantial benefit.
