Business semantics management empowers all stakeholders in the organization by a consistent and aligned definition of the important information assets of the organization.
The available business semantics can be leveraged in the so-called business/social layer of the organization. They can for example be easily coupled to a content management application to provide the business with a consistent business vocabulary or enable better navigation or classification of information, leveraged by enterprise search engines, leveraged to make richer semantic-web-ready websites, etc.
Business semantics can also be used to increase operational efficiency in the technical/operation layer of the organization. Business semantics provide a kind of abstracted, federated, and virtualized way to access and deliver data in a more efficient and aligned manner. In that respect, it is similar to EII with the added benefit that the shared models are not described in technical terms but in a way that is easily understood by the business.
Collibra is the first organization to commercialize the idea behind business semantics management. Collibra's approach to Business Semantics Management is based on DOGMA, a research project at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

Famous quotes containing the word application:
“The application requisite to the duties of the office I hold [governor of Virginia] is so excessive, and the execution of them after all so imperfect, that I have determined to retire from it at the close of the present campaign.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
“Preaching is the expression of the moral sentiment in application to the duties of life.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“My business is stanching blood and feeding fainting men; my post the open field between the bullet and the hospital. I sometimes discuss the application of a compress or a wisp of hay under a broken limb, but not the bearing and merits of a political movement. I make gruelnot speeches; I write letters home for wounded soldiers, not political addresses.”
—Clara Barton (18211912)
