The connected word is creating more and more opportunities for analytics and knowledge modeling applications. While most of the attention is given to mobile devices, there are many other areas that are making quite some nice progress. According to a new study by research firm Analysis Mason Machine-to-machine (M2M) connections will grow to 2.1 billion [...]

What is Enterprise Knowledge Bus? First lets see what is Knowledge good for. Well, except when you want to show off, there is really no benefit to knowledge unless it is put into action! Looking back that is where software has been used; to take actions. But so far we have been focused on [...]
Most of today's applications have in one way or the other some representation of Knowledge incorporated. However those are completely baked into the application code. There is no explicit notion of knowledge and as such no urge for reusing or enhancing (learning) knowledge. In the coming wave of Knowledge Powered Applications (KPA) however here [...]
In most cases when designing a model, knowledge is not readily available in a consumable format. As such a Knowledge Acquisition (KA) process has to be performed. This should be considered as the most important step in a Knowledge Modeling project. Models that are not properly constructed and generalized will lack reusability, due to [...]
