Analytics drive the Corporate Semantic Web

Capital markets require from decision makers that they base their conclusions on facts rather than pure intuition. As the available information is growing exponentially, decision makers need new approaches to master this information and to extract the decision relevant parts. In order to achieve this goal companies have to identify, integrate and analyze the available information. Semantic Web standards provide enabling technologies to integrate external, internal, structured and unstructured information. Companies should thus consider Semantic Web technologies appropriately in their Enterprise Information Management strategy.

Christoph Tempich is a management consultant at Detecon International in the Competence Practice Information Technology. He advises companies in the telecommunication industry in Enterprise Information Management, technology markets and innovation, and semantic technologies. He combines more than 10 years research experience in the Semantic Web with management consulting experience at globally acting management consultancy. He has co-organized a number of workshops related to ontology engineering and business models for the Semantic Web such as the WS on “Business added-value of semantic technologies“ at the European Semantic Technology Conference 2007 and has over 30 publications at international conferences and journals in the same areas. He won prizes for the most innovative e-Business and software application in 2002 and 2004 using Semantic Web technologies. Before he received his PhD in applied informatics from the University of Karlsruhe, Institute of Applied Informatics and Formal Description Methods (AIFB) in 2006 he worked with Bearingpoint as a management consultant.
