The massive quantity of data, information, and knowledge available in digital form on the web or within the organizational knowledge base requires a more effective way to control it. The Semantic Web and its growing complexity demands a resource for the understanding of proper tools for management. Semantic Knowledge Management: An Ontology-Based Framework addresses the Semantic Web from an operative point of view using theoretical approaches, methodologies, and software applications as innovative solutions to true knowledge management. This advanced title provides readers with critical steps and tools for developing a semantic based knowledge management system.
