ABSTRACT The emerging field of interoperability research has come up with a vast number of concepts and technical solutions. However, until today, those technical interoperability solutions are not yet sufficiently linked to the business problems they address. This paper systemizes typical interoperability issues from a business perspective (described by seven Business Interoperability Profiles) and identifies appropriate interoperability solutions which may solve these issues. It extends previous interoperability research by linking the technical view on interoperability to business drivers and needs.
