Convergence in IT and Telecommunications.- The Role of Semantics in ICT at the Cloud Era.- Using Ontology Engineering for Modeling and Managing Services.- Information Modeling and Integration using Ontology Engineering.- Ontology Engineering as Modeling Process in Service Management Architectures.- Ontologies for Cloud Service and Network Management Operations.
Metadata standards in today's ICT sector are proliferating at unprecedented levels, while automated information management systems collect and process exponentially increasing quantities of data. With interoperability and knowledge exchange identified as a core challenge in the sector, this book examines the role ontology engineering can play in providing solutions to the problems of information interoperability and linked data. At the same time as introducing basic concepts of ontology engineering, the book discusses methodological approaches to formal representation of data and information models, thus facilitating information interoperability between heterogeneous, complex and distributed communication systems. In doing so, the text advocates the advantages of using ontology engineering in telecommunications systems. In addition, it offers a wealth of guidance and best-practice techniques for instances in which ontology engineering is applied in cloud services, computer networks and management systems.
Engineering and computer science professionals (infrastructure architects, software developers, service designers, infrastructure operators, engineers, etc.) are today confronted as never before with the challenge of convergence in software solutions and technology. This book will help them respond creatively to what is sure to be a period of rapid development.
Addresses the problem of integrated management and cross-layer interactions
Explores concepts on semantics and engineering in communications such as the integrated and challenging management systems design process
