Traditional methods using harmonization of vocabularies simply cannot provide the needed speed and adaptability. The approach developed by Illumonus LLC is centered around a Business Semantic Thesaurus (BST) coupled with direct linkages to collections of Business Component Dictionaries drawn from physical industry exchange vocabularies. All this is underpinned using open source and open public standards based software.
The Illumonus business-centric approach is been implemented by the Japanese government “IMI” (pronounced Immee) initiative that is adopting the concepts as the foundation for Japan's open information architecture.
Understanding Semantic Integration
The Illumonus approach combines two core concepts. The first component is LinguMatic™, Illumonus’ online Business Semantic Thesaurus for use by designers, implementers and business users of information systems in a manner which will allow systems development to move from a closed to an open multilingual environment.
