Over deze norm
The CEN/ISSS Workshop on eTourism aims at producing guidelines for reaching global interoperability, i.e. enabling seamless data interchange and execution of eBusiness processes in the tourism sector. The Workshop’s main deliverable will be a CEN Workshop Agreement (CWA) on “Harmonization of data interchange in tourism”. The CWA will cover the following topics under a pan-European interoperability perspective: a. analysis and identification of the needs of B2B and B2C partners for harmonized data interchange; b. analysis of the gaps in the design of current interoperability approaches; c. description of the metadata and principles and requirements for data modelling; d. analysis of business models and legal issues (IPRs5, DRMs, Personal data protection and privacy); e. analysis of existing initiatives and approaches for flexible harmonization and global interoperability (including process interoperability); f. recommendations concerning a general framework for eTourism related information exchange; g. best practice case. The Workshop’s main focus is on interoperability issues in electronic data interchange. It will analyse and further build on the results of the already completed European projects Harmonise (Tourism Harmonisation Network), HarmoTEN and Satine (Semantic based interoperability infrastructure for integrating web service platform to peer to peer networks). The Workshop’s aim is to validate and disseminate their results to a wider audience than the project partners. The CEN Workshop will build on the work done by previous projects on metadata frameworks and ontologies. It is outside the scope of the Workshop to do any direct standardization work on terminology. Instead, it will analyse existing initiatives or approaches to the interoperability problem and recommend steps how to make maximal use of such approaches as well as necessary research activities to further improve them. The CEN Workshop will focus on data integration and discovery as well as seamless execution of eBusiness processes. Application of the above will support end-user satisfaction/consumption of travel products, increase data reliability, revenue generation and margin contribution, motivating early adoption and roll out to market.
