    For a business to remain competitive in the global marketplace, agile decision-making capability is vital. A thorough understanding of the organisation's high-level entities and their relations, modelled in a Conceptual Framework (CF), facilitates well-informed business decisions. A CF eases the exploitation of organisational information by means of visual querying using self-explanatory entity and relation names. The CF is populated with actual information by linking it to key informational entities residing in electronic, organisational documents. A Mapping Layer is used to realise and maintain the interface between the relevant electronic documents and the CF.
