Global competition, rapid development of technology,
increased cost pressure, and more aggressive demand from
customers have changed the business environment once and
for all. Companies are merging, they buy and sell other
companies and they network more than ever before.
Companies must have readiness for enterprise
interoperability that requires both technical and
information integration. Most of the enterprises have
solved the problem of technical integration but at the
moment they are still struggling with information
integration. This paper discusses how semantic technology
can be used to ease the information integration process.
In order to really benefit from semantic technologies in
integration, there is a need for a process that provides
methods and instructions for building such solutions in
practice. This paper presents a process which supports
the development of semantic-based solutions for
information integration. The process is tested in one
industrial case study that is described in this paper.
