Interesting list of potential application for semantically aware applications

possible application areas for semantic web and semantically enabled applications

This month’s Cutter report includes a piece by Mitchell Ummel as guest editor.  He suggests a number of areas ripe for use of semantically aware applications:

  • Business intelligence (BI)
  • Data mining (across structured and unstructured
    data stores
  • E-discovery (across centralized and distributed
    data stores)
  • Customer relationship management (CRM) systems,
    leveraging the entirety of the social networking fabric
  • Dynamic business rules (inference engine)
  • Ontology-based security/trust credentialing,
    private social networks, and public referral/viral
    product marketing using FOAF (Friend of a Friend),
    POWDER (Protocol for Web Description Resource),
    and other maturing standards
  • Extract, transform, load (ETL) services (RDF-izers),
    which automatically transform and publish enterprise
    data into private and/or public ontological stores
  • Embedded control, telemetry, and data acquisition
    systems relating to devices, equipment, and sensors,
    including (but not limited to) enablement of smart
    grid3 energy management systems
