The ISICIL initiative (Information Semantic Integration through Communities of Intelligence onLine) mixes viral new web applications with formal semantic web representations and processes to integrate them into corporate practices for technological watch, business intelligence and scientific monitoring. The resulting open source platform proposes three functionalities: (1) a semantic social bookmarking platform monitored by semantic social network analysis tools, (2) a system for semantically enriching folksonomies and linking them to corporate terminologies and (3) semantically augmented user interfaces, activity monitoring and reporting tools for business intelligence.
