Abstract

Modern businesses operate in a rapidly changing environment. Continuous learning is an essential ingredient in order to stay competitive in such environments. The APOSDLE system utilizes semantic web technologies to create a generic system for supporting knowledge workers in different domains to learn work. Since APOSDLE relies on three interconnected semantic models to achieve this goal, the question on how to efficiently create high-quality semantic models has become one of the major research challenges. On the basis of two concrete examples-namely deployment of such a learning system at EADS, a large corporation, and deployment at ISN, a network of SMEs-we report in detail the issues a company has to face, when it wants to deploy a modern learning environment relying on semantic web technology.
