 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'The 24-month EMPOWER project proposes an innovative framework and the enabling technologies that will allow the European Software SMEs to create their next generation, loosely-coupled, interoperable and easy-to-integrate Commercial-off-the-Shelf software products, leveraging the quality of the application software and the integration services delivered to their customers. The EMPOWER project will, finally, result in: R1 & R2: An innovative EMPOWER Reference Framework and Adaptation Environment that enables the European Software SMEs to ad-hoc define and extract pieces of functionality from their legacy systems, implementing a semantic service-oriented private adaptation layer upon each of their software products. R3: the EMPOWER Ontology that constitutes the corner stone of the semantic adaptation of the enterprise services exposed from given proprietary software products; R4: the Enterprise Interoperable Services Semantic Map that constitutes the semantically-enriched, abstract documentation of the interoperable pieces of functionality defined per each type of business software applications; R5: five (5) EMPOWER SMEs-specific Prototypes that will validate and prove the concepts and software components and tools of the proposed EMPOWER project; R6: the EMPOWER Adoption Guidelines that will constitute a semantic service-oriented analysis and adaptation cookbook for the development of the next generation, interoperable and easy-to-integrate software products; and R7: wide-scale dissemination and exploitation of the project results to the European Software SMEs market (with special focus on the emerging enlarge-Europe software industry). Led by LOGO, the consortium consists of eight partners from six EC member states and associated countries, including software development SMEs, industrial companies and research centres.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

An EU project worked to help businesses integrate web applications. That will lead to improved e-business services.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

As an alternative to creating many separate enterprise applications, integration is the new direction for software development. An EU-funded project is helping to make the process easier.

The http://www.empower-project.eu (EMPOWER) project set out to develop technologies enabling European software small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to integrate and manage 'loosely-coupled' commercial off-the-shelf software applications. This goal translated to three main research targets. The project aimed to: develop innovative, enabling technologies, evaluate and validate its research results, and facilitate the uptake of project results. The project's work relied on adaptation of semantic web service frameworks, which means a universal standard for machine-readable web data. Specifically, the project's work applied to e-business processes and transactions.

EMPOWER listed six main areas of ambitions related to technical aspects of software design and functionality. All deliverables were completed according to the revised project agreement with the European Commission, though the detailed achievements were not stated.

The project's legacy will be a flexible architecture for facilitating standardised creation of interoperable business applications. This will lead to better information management and aggregation, and improvements in business services.
