We argue that the integration of organizational models with ontologies is useful to discover business services because we consider that a domain concept that integrated dierent elements of the model could represent new business services to the organization.

Abstract

We argue that the integration of organizational models with ontologies is useful to discover business services because we consider that a domain concept that integrated dierent elements of the model could represent new business services to the organization. These additional services could improve the performance of an enterprise and detect new opportunity areas. Moreover, a model annotated with domain concepts improves the analysis process because included additional information can facilitate a semi-automated reasoning among elements. This paper presents an approach to integrate visual models of an organization with a general or specic domain ontology and proposes semantic annotation suggestions. A software tool is presented to implement the integration process, and an illustrative example validates the eectiveness of our approach.
