The Topic Maps Reference Model (TMRM) provides an analytical framework for evaluating how the integration of the information held in diverse systems, and expressed in diverse terms, can be achieved. It asks and assists in answering the question: “What more do I need to integrate the information in system X with the information in system Y?”, without implying any particular methodology or implementation strategy. The answers are helpful in evaluating the costs and benefits of integrating of information as well as in clarifying the various options for implementation.
