The International Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability

I-VLab: the result of several years of EI development

• •

Created in March 2007, www.interop-vlab.eu From the Network of Excellence INTEROP-NoE (Interoperability Research for Networked Enterprise Applications and Software, FP6 508011, 42 months, 50 partners, 6,5 M€ EC funds)

• •

INTEROP-VLab is a non-profit international association under the Belgian Law (aisbl) Grouping 8 regional poles, bringing together leading academics, research centers, industrial stakeholders, SMEs, from 10 European countries and from China, 70 partners and more than 300 researchers

The International Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability

Enterprise Interoperability definition

“The ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged” (IEEE, 1990)
1. Capability of a system or a product to interact with other systems or products without specific effort from the user 2. Capacity of an enterprise software or application to interact with others (INTEROP definition, April 2007)

The International Virtual Laboratory for Enterprise Interoperability

The originality of INTEROP-VLab approach
The originality of the INTEROP-VLab approach, heritage of previous research works, is to take a multidisciplinary vision by merging three research areas supporting the development of Enterprise Interoperability :

• Information and Communications Technology: the technological base of interoperable systems
• Enterprise Modelling: to define Interoperability requirements and to support solution implementation • Ontology: to ensure the semantical consistency of networked organisations and solutions

Services proposed around the I-V KMap
The Knowledge Map (I-V KMap): • a Knowledge Management System in the EI domain, based on an ontology in EI • for retrieving and storing relevant content (documents, project and product descriptions, people’s competencies, organizations, meetings, visits..) KMap can be customized to specific need: • to build a specific Knowledge Management System using the most advanced ontology research results • by using experience of top specialists in the domain of ontology Research on the I-V KMap: • Use the I-V KMap tool for scientific research activity (in data management system, semantic search, ...) • By experimenting, propose possible enhancements of the I-V KMap
