Towards a Common Platform to Support Business Processes, Services and SemanticsBaba Piprani: MetaGlobal Systems, Canada
Abstract. The search for the Holy Grail in achieving interoperability of business processes, services and semantics continues with every new type or search for the Silver Bullet. Most approaches towards interoperability either are focusing narrowly on the simplistic notion using technology supporting a cowboy-style development without much regard to metadata or semantics. At the same time, the distortions on semantics created by many of current modeling paradigms and approaches – including the disharmony created by multiplicity of parallel approaches to standardization – are not helping us resolve the real issues facing knowledge and semantics management.
This paper addresses some of the issues such as: What have we achieved? Where did we go wrong? What are we doing right? – providing an ipso-facto encapsulated candid snapshot on an approach to harmonizing our approach to interoperability, and propose a common platform to support Business Processes, Services and Semantics.
