1 The Rebirth of EDI Semantic Integration Brian Bolam Founder & President - OmPrompt Inc. © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

2 Established 2004 Objective –Next Generation Electronic Message Exchange Supply Chain Logistics Industry is the initital focus Radically Different pricing model – Transaction Pricing Live Operations with Lead Customer – June 2005 Venture Capital Backed – 3i & Benchmark 2,000+ users as at May 2006 © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

3 Any format to any format Any device to any device Any protocol to any protocol Voice Flat File EDI SAP Spreadsheet Fax Flexibility and Time to Value OmPrompt is agnostic and pervasive What Do We Do? OmPrompt facilitates rapid creation of total electronic trading communities regardless of technological capability. © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

4 An Enduring Problem... Complexity Disparate:- formats, protocols, send/receive devices & ERP systems Waste 80 Bn empty Kms driven each year on Europes roads –450,000 trucking companies with fewer than 5 trucks –Trucks earn revenue for <25% of total available hours The Missing Link ? An Omni-Protocol (Any to Any) Messaging Platform feeding real time SC data to ERP systems to facilitate proactive SC management OmPrompt solves the SC Industrys most ubiquitous problem – lack of systems interoperability. © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

5 Electronic Trading is critical, but stalled Manual Messaging 70% Electronic Messaging 30% EDI xml Reduction in average consignment size means rapid growth in supply chain messaging Electronic enablement of manual messaging will accelerate message volumes 15% cagr We provide a simple, flexible and pervasive route to electronic trading Information interchange is the bedrock of business Businesses need to interchange information electronically SMEs need to be electronically enabled to release supply chain value SMEs are re-enfranchised. © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

10 How do we accelerate the creation of Message Maps? Utilise Artificial Intelligence techniques supported by ONTOLOGIES to analyse and understand the content of unknown forms of message. Automatically deduce potential mappings Automatically Generate and Deploy Executables © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

19 Semantic Ontology Contains Semantic Entities Contains Natural structure Represents an internal Neutral Form Shipper Address Consignee Address Street Name City Name Country © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

20 Semantic Ontologies The Semantic Ontology is a representation of knowledge. It contains all concepts within supply chain messaging, and their relationships and attributes. The Semantic Ontology is constructed using domain knowledge of supply chain messaging. For example, there is a concept of location but not just one location; there could be an origin location, or destination location; or port location etc. This knowledge resides in the Semantic ontology. It is a living network, and is continuously updated and maintained. We can view the semantic ontology as a network © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

26 How ? Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

27 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages :

28 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no)

29 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no) Known EDI standard? (yes/no)

30 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no) Known EDI standard? (yes/no) Fixed or Variable length?

31 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no) Known EDI standard? (yes/no) Fixed or Variable length? Recognisable Delimiters?

32 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no) Known EDI standard? (yes/no) Fixed or Variable length? Recognisable Delimiters? Recognisable Segments?

33 How ? Profiler Analyses a set of Sample Messages : Known format/existing syntax ontology? (yes/no) Known EDI standard? (yes/no) Fixed or Variable length? Recognisable Delimiters? Recognisable Segments? Recognisable Start and End of Message? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

34 How ? Profiler then : Creates a Schema – the Syntax Ontology © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

35 How ? And Profiler then : Displays Analysis results Allows intervention by OmPrompt Analyst © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

36 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition:

37 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition: Recognition of like mappings made previously

38 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition: Recognition of like mappings made previously Matching field Characteristics (Data Type/Length)

39 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition: Recognition of like mappings made previously Matching field Characteristics (Data Type/Length) Data Value Recognition

40 How ? © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition: Recognition of like mappings made previously Matching field Characteristics (Data Type/Length) Data Value Recognition Data Value Recognition IN CONTEXT

41 How ? Profiler then deduces Mappings by Recognition: Recognition of like mappings made previously Matching field Characteristics (Data Type/Length) Data Value Recognition Data Value Recognition IN CONTEXT Mappings provide the Semantic Connection © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved

42 How ? Displays Mappings ranked by Probability Allows Omprompt Analyst to Accept or Reject © OmPrompt Ltd All Rights Reserved
