Abstract

Corporate household not only refers to the strict hierarchical structure within the corporation, but also the variety of inter-organizational relationships. We propose a conceptual definition for corporate household, corporate household knowledge, and corporate household knowledge processor. After describing research challenges and conceptual definitions, we summarize potential solution approaches. Our research plan is twofold: (1) continue to document the various different sources, views, and purposes for corporate household knowledge, including the rules used in each case; (2) extend the context interchange framework to represent the corporate household knowledge and enable the context mediation technology to correctly understand and reason about both the context of the sources and the context of the user's query.

Keywords: Corporate Household, Data Quality, Context Mediation
