Well… today Web is about communication, about meanings, about socialization, let’s say, about semantics, and not mere computer connections and in its previous generation.
Almost everything turns around Web and of what relates with Web: we are meaning the development of applications, business processes, governmental initiatives, research, defense, terrorism, and an interminable set of subjects. And this is why one of the main concerns relies clearly on the way all the information, useful or not, updated or not, should be organized on the Web and made available to the user.
The semantic technologies are the most important contribution to the development of the Web, towards a universally recognized medium of exchanging information, with impact on people, organizations and society. It is becoming a rapidly growing area in IT, with emerging key developments, tools, techniques, that are engineering the Web of the future, and determining a new way of acceding, using and exploring information and creating knowledge.
The impact of IT on the society, on organizations of every stripe and on individuals is growing. Today, key challenges of Semantic Web include, besides the technological dimension, the impact on people and on society, which are revealing increased relevance.
A few years ago it would have appeared impossible to think about a global Web of semantically structured information.
Today, the Web is recognized as a main support of business processes. Business Process Management Technologies are progressively gaining its space; legacy systems and multiple databases are surviving through important models of data integration; business processes are re adapting to the emerging business paradigms and different enterprises inter-interact either through their interfaces or through functional integration models. The social aspects, recognized as complex, appear as the most recent aspect, where answers are sought in a new Web, called social Web.
