Semantic Annotation and Conflict Analysis for Information System Integration

  title={Semantic Annotation and Conflict Analysis for Information System Integration},
  author={Henning Agt and Gregor Bauhoff and Ralf-Detlef Kutsche and Nikola Milanovic and J{\"u}rgen Widiker},
One of the main challenges in software integration is to overcome interface incompatibilities. Integration specialists are confronted with different semantic, structural, behavioral, communication and property mismatches. We developed an MDA-based theoretical framework to address these aspects by systematically modeling integration projects at the CIM, PSM and PIM levels in order to achieve automatic analysis, code generation and integration. However, small and medium enterprises (SMEs… Expand

Figures from this paper

Semantic Annotation Model Definition for Systems Interoperability
The survey presented in this paper will be the basis of the future research on models, semantics and architecture for enterprises systems interoperability during the product lifecycle. Expand
Semantic and Structural Annotations for Comprehensive Model Analysis
This paper presents an approach, where based on annotations the model-contained information is made accessible for further processing, and multiple dimensions of the model are considered, allowing a comprehensive view on theModel relations can be discovered and analyzed. Expand
Explicitating semantics in Enterprise Information Systems Models
This research memory will show the results obtained during the Post Doc study referring to the published works, and proposes a conceptualisation approach for explicitation of the finest-grained semantics, embedded into conceptual models in order to facilitate the semantic matching between two different information systems that have to interoperate. Expand
Using Metamodels and Ontologies for Enterprise Model Reconciliation
The method proposed in this paper is based on semantic annotations and aims for the externalization and machine readability of the model contained information and assures the accessibility for further automatic processing and facilitates the discovery and analysis of inter-model relations. Expand
Supporting Software Language Engineering by Automated Domain Knowledge Acquisition
This research work proposes automated knowledge acquisition to support language engineers in early language development phases with an iterative approach in which DSL development benefits from formalized knowledge sources and information extraction from text supporting domain analysis and metamodel construction. Expand
Comprehensive Study of Semantic Annotation: Variant and Praxis
The proliferation of web content on the Internet has increased the demand for efficient information retrieval independent of content. The concept of the semantic web has revolutionized the way ofExpand
Why, Where and How to use Semantic Annotation for Systems Interoperability
This paper identifies three main components of semantic annotation, gives a formal definition of semantic annotati on method and presents a survey of current semantic annotation methods which include: languages and tools that can be used to develop ontology, the design of semantic annotations structure models and the corresponding applications. Expand
Guidance for domain specific modeling in small and medium enterprises
The current state of the solution is presented to provide guidance to both ends of stakeholders involved in a DSM development lifecycle, domain experts and DSL designers to make a DSL development feasible and beneficial through the guidance provided by EXAMINE and within the DIESEL-Framework. Expand
Modeling and Analyzing Non-Functional Properties to Support Software Integration
A model-based process is introduced that allows dynamic definition of non-functional properties in the context of software integration, a NFP taxonomy is presented, and a method for formal analysis of interface incompatibilities with respect to these properties is proposed. Expand


Automatic Generation and Evolution of Model Transformations Using Ontology Engineering Space
This paper presents a novel approach using the capabilities of semantic technologies in order to improve cross-organisational modelling by automatic generation and evolution of model transformations. Expand
Lifting metamodels to ontologies: a step to the semantic integration of modeling languages
A shift of focus from the implementation of a certain modeling language towards the explicit reification of the concepts covered by this language is made, which helps to achieve better results in terms of mappings that can in turn be a basis for deriving implementation specific transformation code. Expand
Metamodels and Transformations for Software- and Data-Integration
Metamodels define a foundation for describing software system interfaces which can be used during software or data integration processes. The report is part of the BIZYCLE project, which examinesExpand
OWL-Based Semantic Conflicts Detection and Resolution for Data Interoperability
This paper summarizes seven cases based on OWL in which semantic conflicts are easily to be encountered, and proposes a semantic conflicts detection and resolution algorithm that aims at providing a semi-automatic method for semantic uniform data interoperability and integration. Expand
Ontologies: principles, methods and applications
This paper outlines a methodology for developing and evaluating ontologies, first discussing informal techniques, concerning such issues as scoping, handling ambiguity, reaching agreement and producing definitions, and considers, a more formal approach. Expand
(Meta-)Models, Tools and Infrastructures for Business Application Integration
The basic models and metamodels on CIM, PIM and PSM level, forming the pre-requisite for the further project work, are examined in this article. Expand
Bringing Ontology Awareness into Model Driven Engineering Platforms
The aim is to understand the role of ontologies in supporting model-driven engineering, in particular MDE platforms, and to present an ontology-aware MDE platform architecture. Expand
Model-Based Interoperability of Heterogeneous Information Systems: An Industrial Case Study
A model-based approach for information system integration is introduced and demonstrated on the industrial case-study of data integration between the Oracle database management system and the SAP R/3 enterprise resource planning system. Expand
