Methods of Semantic Integration in Distributed Information Systems: Challenges of Application

Semantic assets are the basis for data collection, search, analysis and data visualization using semantic properties, and enable semantic interoperability of distributed information systems as a whole. At this time interoperability in distributed systems is mostly supported on technical and organizational levels, however semantic interoperability is quite essential for heterogeneous environment of distributed systems. The ability of information systems to interact on a semantic level can be achieved by joining the efforts of IT-specialists and domain experts. The goal of this joined effort is to transfer the knowledge of the experts about the domain from paper documents into machine-readable representation (ontologies, thesauri, and glossaries). Without this step, the dissemination of knowledge outside of a particular information system is difficult and insufficient for the “understanding” and the (re)use by other interacting distributed systems.
