English abstract:
Semantic technologies provide the means to create a
more efficient human-computer interaction. In this paper
we showcase how to use semantic technologies in the design
of a Document Management System (DMS) to re-engineer a
legacy DMS using a text-based search. Due to the historical
growth of the database, a text-based search without using
domain knowledge delivers bloated result-sets that prevent
an efficient use of the DMS. The requirement of an intel-
ligent search can be suitably addressed by using semantic
technologies, thus we propose such a new design of a DMS.
We employ concepts used in ontologies to provide search
results based on hierarchies that are based on concepts of
natural language. We construct a metamodel for the appli-
cation domain to deliver fitting suggestions along with the
search results. Finally, we realise a prototype as a proof-
of-concept based on the introduced design to highlight the
evident advantages of a semantic approach.
