Resumen:
Una pyme italiana ha desarrollado una organización de datos y conocimiento, un servicio de asesoramiento ofrecido por profesionales expertos en tecnologías y metodologías para la formalización y representación de conocimiento. Este servicio se dirige a organismos interesados en incrementar el valor y explotabilidad de sus activos de información (datos, know-how, etc.) gracias al enriquecimiento con metadatos adicionales. Por medio de entrevistas, cuestionarios y estudios de campo de los sistemas informativos, el servicio identifica los activos de información de forma precisa y describe con exactitud el conocimiento de la organización. La empresa busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de cooperación o comercialización con asistencia técnica.

Data and knowledge organisation
Summary:
An Italian SME has developed Data -Y- Knowledge Organisation, a technical counselling service offered by professionals expert in technologies and methodologies for the formalisation and representation of knowledge. The service is addressed to each organisation willing to increase the value and exploitability of its information assets (data, know how, etc.) thanks to the enrichment with additional metadata. Technical cooperation or commercial agreement with technical assistance is sought.
Description:
Data -Y- Knowledge Organization is provided by knowledge engineers according to a well defined procedure: They analyze:

· the domain specific lexicon;
· the customers´ and users´ needs;
· the data structures in use.

By means of interviews, questionnaires and on-field surveys of the informative systems, the service precisely identify the information assets and finely describe the knowledge of the organization thanks to the rich and its rigorous and formal explicitation.

The aim of the service is to deploy a new conceptual model of the data structures, enriched with additional information obtained by the explicitation of implicit (not expressed) knowledge, like the domain experts´ own knowledge. Moreover the service outputs also a formal representation of this model, expressed in a logic language suitable for the definition of richer databases (Knowledge Bases indeed) that can be accessed by innovative software applications capable of showing an intelligent behaviour. Thus, the Data -Y- Knowledge Organization service is one major step on the way to Knowledge-based systems.
Advantages and Innovations:
Conventional IT instruments deal with information in a poor and non instructive manner so that implicit knowledge stay hidden to applications and cannot be effectively used to show an overall intelligent behaviour.

The Data -Y- Knowledge Organization service causes the data model to be reorganized and enriched with implicit knowledge about data. Once data are defined as (logical) types of data, implicit knowledge gets explicited in the form of valued attributes of the data types and asserted relationships among data types. This way software applications can access and exploit not only data, but also this previously hidden knowledge about data. The most significant advantage is the ability to design software applications by far more meaningful to users.

For instance, it is possible to design ´self-explanatory applications´ so that users are not expected to know in detail the internal functioning of the applications in order to use them. It is also feasible to design search systems where users are not expected to be domain experts in order to formulate interesting queries.

To put it in a nutshell, the gain consists in allowing users to take advantage of others´ knowledge:

· the analysts who have designed the application;
· from the authors who have edited the documents;
· from the experts that have collected the data.

Moreover, since knowledge formalization does not depend necessarily on human language, the representations are language independent. Therefore the Data -Y- Knowledge Organization service is suitable for world-wide applications.

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: The company is looking for companies and organizations that consider their own knowledge a strategic asset, and are interested in increasing its value by means of an optimized data organization. To them they offer their Data -Y- Knowledge Organization service according to the usual relationship client-provider.

- Specific area of activity of the partner: The potential partners cannot be identified with just one or a few specific areas of activity. Nonetheless, the ideal partner is a company or organization willing to renovate its informative system, based on the awareness that the use of conventional instruments and methodologies cannot bring any major improvement.

- Task to be performed by the partner sought: The company offers technical consultancy in order to create the enriched databases (or knowledge bases) and to design suitable applications for the exploitation of their partner´s information assets.
