The periodic-style table for representing the "Semantic Infrastructure Software Service Categories Derived From Initial Use Case Analysis" was directly inspired by the BIG Health Enterprise Service Portfolio Periodic Table. One of the goals of the Semantic Infrastructure Requirements project was to produce deliverables for software engineering that could be used by the software architects to develop a solution architecture. This periodic table was determined to be the way to represent and synthesize potential business capability services of the Semantic Infrastructure and community, which are in turn the infrastructure services for scientific and clinical communities.
The Functional Profiles and Semantic Profiles comprise Semantic Infrastructure Capability Services.
The list below identifies the elements. Each is linked to a wiki page with information about that element.
