MAIN TOPICS

** APPLICATIION OF SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES IN ENTERPRISES
** BENEFIT OF SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES IN ENTERPRISES
** ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGE DUE SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES IN ENTERPRISES


CIOs are starting to acknowledge the technical value of semantic
technologies for enterprises. In the last five years early adopting
players have been increasingly using them in various application
settings ranging from content management to enterprise integration
platforms. Despite this promising position, it is still difficult to
argue in favor of semantic technologies in front of the CFOs because
of the lack of convincing measurable benefits.
The workshop addresses the value proposition of semantic technologies
for business purposes. It is intended as a networking event for early
adopters willing to share their experiences in adopting semantics at
corporate level, and for other interested parties looking for best
practices and success stories with this respect. In particular we aim
at experience reports from enterprises addressing

** benefits of semantic technologies in SOA-based enterprise architectures
** benefits of semantic technologies for multi-device management
** efforts and problems occurring in adopting semantic technologies at
corporate level, including the changes

triggered by this adoption at process and organizational level, and
the need for training and additional know-how

** evaluation criteria and methods to assess the quality and compare
alternative technological solutions.
** the way the usage of semantics achieves efficiency gains
** instruments to derive and estimate the value of semantic
technologies from quantitative and qualitative

criteria, and to visualize the effect on overall costs and revenues
according to the economic value added principle

The workshop also seeks for original academic work in the respective
field including
** methods to estimate the cost of introducing semantic technologies
into enterprise environments
** methods to anticipate the cost savings achievable through semantic
technologies
** methods to estimate the option of investing in semantic
technologies in terms of their potential business value.
