"Semantics in Business Systems" begins with a description of what semantics are and how they affect business systems. It examines four main aspects of the application of semantics to systems, specifically: how do we infer meaning from unstructured information, how do application systems make meaning as they operate, how do practitioners uncover meaning in business settings, and how do we understand and communicate what we have deduced. This book illustrates how this applies to the future of application system development, especially how it informs and affects Web services and business rule- based approaches, and how semantics will play out with XML and the semantic Web. The book also contains a quick reference guide to related terms and technologies. It is part of Morgan Kaufmann's series of "Savvy Manager's Guides". It presents an easy and enjoyable introduction to semantics in the context of business IT systems. It articulates the business value of semantics, while providing relevant introductory technical background. It describes the semantic underpinnings of data modeling, business rules, enterprise integration, and Web services. It contains a handy quick-reference guide to technologies and terminology.

Review:

Interesting, timely, and above all, useful, Savvy Guides give IT managers the information they need to effectively manage their technologists, as well as conscientiously inform business decision makers, in the midst of technological revolution.

From the Back Cover:

...Great book! It clearly explains the background and practical application of semantics that managers, architects and software developers will need to understand how new technologies will impact the next generation of business systems.
-Dave Hollander, CTO; Contivo Inc., Co-chair W3C XML Schema Working Group

This book will help you navigate through the current batch of alphabet soup: XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, and the rest. It gives a clear overview of the territory punctuated by examples...
-Peter Norvig, Google.com

What does semantics have to do with information systems, databases, enterprise integration, and Web services? Though sometimes misunderstood as an arcane liberal art, semantics is at the core of these and other emerging technologies. Semantics is a powerful and intuitive philosophy, methodology, and framework that can be used to leverage existing knowledge, data, and resources, ensuring your systems will be able to evolve with your business and keep pace with technology in the years to come.

Well-written and engaging, Semantics in Business Systems: The Savvy Manager's Guide contains the knowledge you need to understand and assess how semantics can help your information systems. It begins with a clear explanation of what semantics is and then describes, using real-world examples, how semantics currently affects business systems. The book then explores future applications of semantics, illustrating its connection to XML and the Semantic Web.|...Great book!
