The emerging Semantic Web may change business integration from using partial, ad-hoc and costly connections to a qualitatively new level providing universal representation and transformation means for business terminologies, documents, business processes, services, and business models. Currently, the Semantic Web is based on representation languages like XML, RDF (Schema), and OIL, however it lacks proper transformation initiatives. In the paper we present an RDFT mapping ontology and show it’s applications to business integration tasks.
