Ok, we can of course try to make it more specific. We can for example 
integrate the following paragraph between the two existing ones:

In Supply Chain Management (SCM), for example, it is vital to exchange 
product catalogs and other goods related information within a network of 
interconnected businesses involved in the ultimate provision of product 
and service packages. Such information is stored in relational databases 
and sometimes already exchanged electronically, but a variety of 
different technologies are used (e.g. proprietary files, XML files, DB 
dumps, Web Services etc.). Realizing a completely electronic information 
flow requires significant initial investments and currently limits the 
flexibility of businesses (e.g. with regard to changes in business 
partners). The envisioned RDB2RDF mapping language applied in 
conjunction with existing RDB based SCM systems will support the use of 
RDF and unique identifiers for realizing flexible information 
information flows accompanying supply chains.

We could also add a sentence that this use-case will be evaluated with 
Oracle and Virtuoso.
