Information Management ran another story on one of my favorite overall “themes” – that there will emerge a semantic enterprise. In, “The Semantic Web: A Perfect Complement to Master Data Management”, January 11th, J. Brooker Aker calls out what, to me, is pretty obvious:
“…[T]he semantic Web offers quick and precise data analysis for enterprise users to manage and discover relationships among master data based on semantic modeling and reasoning.”
Where this topic get’s a little fuzzy would be with things like:
“Implementation-wise, semantic Web technologies allow IT managers to integrate master data without needing to understand the data model or writing complex SQL statements.”
I’d like to know how an enterprise oriented IT manager can work with enterprise information and not need to “understand the data model”. However, Aker has the right idea I think.
