Detecting semantically related concepts in a SOA integration scenario

In this paper, we present an approach to detecting semantically related concepts in a service oriented environment. This method is essential when creating collaborative business processes. Standard enterprise application systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), supply chain management (SCM) etc. offer a lot of opportunities for application interoperability. System integrators assign a set of services from various application systems to the integration scenario. A well defined discovery process can detect these services. Nevertheless, building an operable business process requires the mapping of these services in the data schema used in the business process. This mapping results in a global understanding of relevant business concepts in the integration scenario. This paper focuses on the identification of semantically relevant concepts in different schemas in the participating services. A short overview of our integration platform and methodology is also included.
