Event Details

Interoperability and e-business frameworks

Interoperability, in a broad sense, refers to systems ability to share information in distributed computing environments. Although research and development work on interoperability is mature in some aspects, it is still necessary to approach interoperability with a broader scope in a systematic way, e.g., tackling economic and management aspects, discovery, conflict solving.

In this presentation, industry-neutral and industry-specific e-business frameworks and initiatives will be analyzed and discussed, emphasizing their weaknesses towards seamless interoperability. A conceptual framework will be then presented, which follows a service-oriented approach. An analytical model to compare e-business frameworks will be introduced, emphasizing the advantages of the conceptual framework proposed over existing e-business frameworks.

After this talk a drink will take place in the PVOC.
