Enterprise Management in the Presence of Data

Talk by Evellin Cardoso
This presentation discusses the two research lines of my work, namely Enterprise Modelling and Knowledge Representation, and their synergies. In the first line, my PhD work has been structured around understanding, clarifying and making use of the interconnections between the enterprise motivational and behavioural ontologies in Enterprise Computing. My research questions addressed the investigation of the suitable abstractions for the specification of motivational and behavioural concepts and their interconnections to allow synchronized movements between both structures. With the advent of Big data, I became interested in combining such enterprise ontologies with data. My postdoctoral work uses the Ontology Based Data Access (OBDA) paradigm from Semantic Web to connect elements from the behavioural ontology with timestamped relational data sources. This approach allows business users to gain insights from data, by allowing the reconstruction and querying of the state of behavioural elements using ontology as an intermediate layer in a vocabulary which is close to business users.
