Nowadays companies do not thrive solely through their own individual efforts and isolated knowledge. Enterprises have to become agile, sensitive to changes in market forces, and capable of responding with incremental modifications in business and services provided (adaptation) as well as anticipating radical changes by responding with new and breakthrough business models (innovation). This involves a mix of both cooperative and competitive elements, where decision support, evolving information systems, and the use of networking concepts such as the virtual enterprise or the enterprise ecosystem is becoming more common. The approach here presented aims at facilitating and sustaining interoperability in a dynamic networked enterprise environment. Relying on domain-based semantic translation services, sustainable interoperability enables each organization to keep its own terminology and seamlessly communicate with others (i.e. enterprise interoperability). This work contributes to that paradigm, proposing a novel mechanism based in probabilistic analysis (PA), case-based reasoning (CBR) and similarity calculation (SC) to support decision, service redesign and mapping modifications, e.g. when a company changes its internal model but wants to ensure that communication with external entities is not affected.
