Abstract

This is a report about cooperation projects with the Common IT-department of the Hessian judicial authority (Gemeinsame IT-Stelle der hessischen Justiz, called GIT in the following) and other Hessian public institutions. In the context of modeling and software development using state-of-the-art schema management technologies, the area of protection and security in digital networks undergoes changes towards more responsibility in dealing with technology, organization and human users. From the perspective of language theory, the available commercial systems such as NetWeaver (SAP), WebSphere (IBM) or SharePoint Server (MS) can be seen as schema-management systems. From the point of view of programming and transaction technology it will be interpreted as servicebase-management systems. Concerning the current protection and security of GIT’s application systems two solutions will be presented here, parts of which have already been implemented. Thus, this paper focuses on the standardization of data elements and the standardization of functional elements, which ensure the domain-specific semantic integrity of data and functions in enterprises and administrations. At the end, we will discuss the change we are witnessing among IT experts as well as IT users globally due to language-based technologies such as Semantic Web, Wikis, Google, Facebook, etc., here shown using the example of the Hessian judicial authority. This change is reflected also in education, especially with respect to providing language-based modeling know-how for everybody.
