The World Wide Web Consortium has announced the approval of two Semantic Web technologies as standards—RDF (Resource Description Framework) and OWL (Web Ontology Language). RDF and OWL set methods for sharing and reusing data on the Web, as well as for asset management and enterprise integration.

The Semantic Web is an extension of the Web where information is assigned greater meaning and data can be accessed for automation, integration and reuse. Using RDF and OWL, content developers can connect metadata with documents to enable better search capabilities. Other enhancements include the ability to integrate enterprise applications and better manage Web sites.
