Successfully communicating a Business Executive’s goals and

challenge. The most significant problem is relating the changes desired in a
semantically consistent and understandable manner and then reflecting the

business processes carried out within that organization. This paper presents a
proposal for a simulation-based communication tool that employs a
semantically driven natural-language component to capture a Business
Executive’s needs. These needs are translated into a simulation of a business
process consisting of semantic web services that represent the evolution of the
organizations IT infrastructure and policies. Through an iterative
communication loop with the IT Architect the simulation can be used to
accurately represent the changes necessary to meet the Business Executive’s
