Revolutionizing Enterprise Interoperability through Scientific Foundations

Book Description

Organizations and enterprises are becoming more competitive about enlarging their target markets and developing innovative products and services, all the while transforming their business models to better fit the new technological era. Enterprise Interoperability (EI) is an emerging and thriving research domain, but a lack of standardized guidelines inhibit its complete reuse. Revolutionizing Enterprise Interoperability through Scientific Foundations offers information on the latest advancements and research for Enterprise Interoperability knowledge as well as core concepts, theories, and future directions. This book is an essential resource for researchers and practitioners in the Enterprise Interoperability field and related areas.
