BML Presentation

What is Business Modelling Language (BML)? How do I use it? What are the Benefits?

These are some of the questions that we get most of the time from SMEs regarding the usage and role of the BML as implemented in the DBE.

In a nutshell and in practical terms, BML is one of the layers of semantics that you can add to your software or real world services in order to make them “findable”, that is searchable and discoverable within the DBE P2P network. However, it is important to note that BML also plays other roles [1]

We have prepared with the help of the DBE partners a short presentation giving some examples and the workflow of BML (version 1.0). Please download the presentation from the link below:

eClassOWL version 5.1 released

One of the ways of achieving high levels of efficiency, process integration and business-to-business interoperatibility is by using standard tools, incluing standards related to knowledge representation and knowledge reusability.

eClassOWL is one of the projects that we have been following with great interest regarding knowledge representation and sharing on the B2B SOA space. eClassOWL is trying to create ontologies for products and services based on german eClass project and OWL and they have just relased version 5.1.
