  booktitle={International Conference on Computational Science},
This paper presents a brief overview of the work on translation of Common Information Model (CIM) to Web Ontology Language (OWL) standard. The main motivation for the work is given, along with discussion of major issues faced during this work. The paper contains also comparison of existing approaches to conversion of CIM to OWL and presents the CIM2OWL tool that performs the conversion of CIM schema and allows convertion of CIM instances - representing for instance configurations of particular… 

Transformation of the Common Information Model to OWL

This paper describes how CIM can be converted into a Web Ontology Language (OWL) ontology including constructs for which no obvious direct conversion exists, such as CIM qualifiers.

IT Management Using a Heavyweight CIM Ontology

This paper presents an approach for ontology-based IT management based on a heavyweight (formal) ontology using the Web Ontology Language (OWL). The ontology comprises a complete OWL representation

The value of ontologies for developing semantic standards

The MOSES methodology has been adapted to include the development and usage of an ontology, which provides a shared vocabulary with unambiguous concept descriptions for all stakeholders to improve interoperability and take into account the interoperability benefits ontologies can bring.

Automated IT Management using Ontologies

This paper converts the Common Information Model, a Distributed Management Task Force standard, into an OWL (Web Ontology Language) ontology, and describes a runtime system that merges monitoring data into the ontology and then uses a reasoner to evaluate management rules.

Towards an authorisation model for distributed systems based on the Semantic Web

An authorisation architecture for distributed systems taking into account aspects such as privacy among parties and trust management is described, and a new conversion process of CIM into the Semantic Web languages has been proposed converting properly the semantics available in the CIM model.

IT service management and governance modeling an ITSM Configuration process: A foundational ontology approach

The purpose of this ontology is to provide a conceptual model of this domain committed to maximize expressivity, clarity and truthfulness of the concepts belonging to it.

RDF-based IT Configuration Management Database

The developed Semantic Configuration Management Database (SeConD) framework provides the common functionalities required by a CMDB for managing IT infrastructures and is an enabler for further work in the area of semantic CMDB research.

Towards an architecture to bind the Java and OWL languages

This proposal describes a binding process between Java and OWL to provide an architecture enabling the usage of both languages during software development and at run-time, and allows getting the advantages of both programming paradigms, declarative and imperative, together.

Towards Semantic Interoperability in Information Technology: On the Advances in Automation

Considering the growing dependence of automation on information technology, it is observed that advances in automation require advances in IT.



DMTF-CIM to OWL : A Case Study in Ontology Conversion

The process and problems associated with translating a specific software engineering ontology into a different ontology language are described and specific translations are described for various CIM constructs.

Toward a Formal Common Information Model Ontology

This paper proposes a framework for constructing a CIM ontology based upon previous research that identified mappings from Unified Modeling Language (UML) constructs to ontology language constructs that are extended and applied to a UML representation of the CIM Schema in order to derive a semantically valid and consistent formal C IM ontology.

A Core Grid Ontology for the Semantic Grid

One of the key goals is to make this Core Grid Ontology general enough and easily extensible to be used by different Grid architectures or Grid middleware, so that the CGO can provide a common basis for representing Grid knowledge about Grid systems.

ODEDialect: a Set of Declarative Languages for Implementing Ontology Translation Systems

This paper proposes ODEDialect, a set of languages to express translation decisions declaratively and at different layers: lexical, syntax, semantics, and pragmatics, which allows expressing transformations in the semantic and pragmatic layers.

Ontology-based semantics for composable autonomic elements

A semantic service based approach to the definition of elements in an autonomic network is proposed in order to enable ontological reasoning in support of composable self-management functions.

Grid Organizational Memory: A Versatile Solution for Ontology Management in the Grid

A solution to this problem based on ontologies and distributed knowledge base is presented and the performance evaluation for typical use cases shows, that ontology separation and various configurations of GOM make it useful for managing knowledge in multiple domains.
