In order to be able to scale business enterprises and digitally transform them, we need to be able to readily integrate business data. Traditional systems have business data travelling through different layers of the automation stack vertically. This study presents an architecture that employs a unified ontology namespace for integration of business data. Such an architecture is thought to enhance transparency and visibility easing integrations. A use-case exploiting such an architecture with webservices is presented to convey the ease at which different applications, such as a digital twin, can be “plugged in” to realize further business potential of enterprises.
