About this paper
Recent developments in semantic technologies add a new level of intelligence and meaning to enterprise content management and promise to improve information access across any organization. This paper describes how a semantic infrastructure is a platform for building a broad variety of applications and enabling them to communicate with each other – at a higher level than simply exchanging data. To get the full value from semantic technologies, organizations cannot take the typical "project" mindset toward development and implementation. Instead, they must devise a strategic vision of how automating and associating text data fits within – and ultimately transforms – their organization.
