We define Semantic eBusiness as “an approach to managing knowledge for coordination of eBusiness processes through the systematic application of Semantic Web technologies.” Advances in Semantic Web-based technologies offer the means to integrate heterogeneous systems across organizations in a meaningful way by incorporating ontology—a common, standard, and shareable vocabulary used to represent the meaning of system entities; knowledge representation, with structured collections of information…

This paper fills a gap in the existing literature by extending role-based access control models for eBusiness processes that are done by using ontological analysis and semantic Web technologies to develop a framework for computationally feasible secure eBusiness process knowledge representations.
A Design Theory for Secure Semantic eBusiness Processes
A design theory (SSeBP) is developed that presents a novel and holistic approach that contributes to the IS knowledge base by filling an existing research gap in the area of design of information systems to support secure and coordinated business processes.

Semantic based Service-Oriented Grid Architecture for Business Processes
This paper has proposed semantic based service-oriented grid architecture to demonstrate how semantics can be employed in SOA to deliver common vocabulary, knowledge, and automation of a business process and how grid middleware can be used to provide state, transaction, notification, scalability, and execution and monitoring of business processes.

The relation between ontologies and XML schemas
This work gives a detailed comparison of OIL, a proposal for expressing ontologies in the Web, with XML Schema, a proposed standard for describing the structure and semantics of Web documents and argues that these two refer to different levels of abstraction.
Web Service for Knowledge Management in E-Marketplaces
This research presents a knowledge services framework, founded on the Web Services Architecture, to enable the transparent exchange of knowledge between intelligent software systems that manage processes of organizations engaged in e-business in the knowledge-based economy.
This paper proposes to represent e-government knowledge by means of XML Declarative Description (XDD)—a unified XMLbased knowledge representation with well-defined semantics and expressive means for direct and uniform representation of facts, ontologies, inferences and rules.
