Abstract

For several years, all major communicational and informational aspects of organizations are being virtualized. This trend can be expected to evolve even further, provided sufficient technology is available, which can foster this process. Several research efforts have dealt in the past with the problem of creating and supporting management in Virtual Organizations, i.e., introducing the possibility of virtualizing the entire organization concept, by means of special IT infrastructure. One of the main problems of this approach is allowing the organizations to discover and collaborate with other organizations. In this paper we analyze the possibility of using P2P technology to data knowledge distribution in distributed systems. We present a survey and comparison of various structured and unstructured P2P networks. We describe our P2P approach to knowledge based emergent Virtual Organizations inception and management.
