Enterprise Knowledge Maps: Towards subject-centric computing


By murray - Posted on 20 March 2007

The ability to find the “right” information is crucial for making good decisions. To achieve this, a unified view on all enterprise information assets is required.

Unification should be achieved in respect to several dimensions:

  • Structured vs. unstructured information
  • Static vs. dynamically generated documents
  • Subject vs. document centric resources

In this presentation we explore the idea of adding “knowledge middleware” in the form of a topic map which “maps” enterprise information. This mapping provides a new user experience: the ability to quickly find required information.

We investigate the integration between the enterprise knowledge map and the user interaction layer and we explore how the knowledge map can be integrated with Enterprise RSS, the portal infrastructure, faceted navigation and full text search.
