Business Interoperability Profiles: Relating Business Interoperability Issues to Technical Interoperability Solutions
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.

ABSTRACT: Semantic Information Systems (IS) Standards play a critical role in the development of the networked economy. While their importance is undoubted by all stakeholdersâsuch as businesses, policy makers, researchers, developersâthe current state of research leaves a number of questions unaddressed. Terminological confusion exists around the notions of business semantics, business-to-business interoperability, and interoperability standards amongst others. And, moreover, a comprehensive understanding about the characteristics of Semantic IS Standards is missing. The paper addresses this gap in literature by developing a characteristics framework for Semantic IS Standards. Two case studies are used to check the applicability of the framework in a real-life context. The framework lays the foundation for future research in an important field of the IS discipline and supports practitioners in their efforts to analyze, compare, and evaluate Semantic IS Standards.Information Systems and e-Business Management 12/2012; 10(4):571–602.
