Abstract

The FUSION approach proposes both a conceptual framework and a system architecture that supports the composition of business processes using semantically annotated web services as building blocks. Results will be validated by supporting collaborative commercial proof-of-concept pilots. The FUSION approach will facilitate trans-national pilot cases having operations spanning the enlarged Europe, in particular: integration of transactions of a franchising firm, provision of career and human resource management services, collaboration of companies in a chain of schools of foreign languages. The paper provides an overview on the FUSION approach and illustrates how it can be applied on one of the pilot cases.
