Tara Ontology Language Ontology defines a set of representational primitives that are used to model a domain of knowledge. Definitions of the representational primitives include information about their meaning, properties, and rules for their consistent use if needed. Tara provides an ontological foundation for modeling of business, social, and technology related processes and systems. Semantion Metamodeler (SM2) is a tool that provides creation of Tara models.
SM2 Facts Based on Tara Ontology Language JEE web application running on Semantion Business Platform Core functionalities supported by Semantion Registry and Repository
SIM Core Functionalities Models business processes in SOA-IM Generates Collaborative Process Information Document (CPID) form a business process model. CPID contains all details needed to deploy and execute the process. SOA-VM interprets CPID and in order to execute the process. Export process models
Core Functionalities Tara Application Builder (TAB) generates web applications from Tara modelss created in Semantion Metamodeler TAB generated web applications manage enterprise information via Semantion Business Platform Generated web applications run on top of Semantion Registry and Repository
PSD Facts Enforce formal language for system engineering design (System Design Metamodel) Improves design visibility and readability – all information for certain design under one view Improve design analysis with intuitive model query request

SOA-VM Facts Virtual platform for deployment, execution, and analysis of business processes based on Federated Enterprise Reference Architecture (FERA) Directly executes processes modeled in Semantion SOA Information Model (SOA-IM) by SIM Detailed snapshot of a process is available at any point in time during and after the process execution The process updates can be done in real-time without any code changes
Summary Semantion develops Semantion Business Platform (SBP) software that enables management of business information and processes. Semantion also provides a common business management framework supported with a methodology. The way how Semantion software is virtualized provides a breakthrough solution that not only improves efficiency of in-house software model but also enables a cloud computing (Software as a Service) in the area of modeling and automating business processes.
