Nowadays, a wide range of information sources are available due to the evolution of web and collection of data. Plenty of these information are consumable and usable by humans but not understandable and processable by machines. Some data may be directly accessible in web pages or via data feeds, but most of the meaningful existing data is hidden within deep web databases and enterprise information systems. Besides the inability to access a wide range of data, manual processing by humans is effortful, error-prone and not contemporary any more. Semantic web technologies deliver capabilities for machine-readable, exchangeable content and metadata for automatic processing of content. The enrichment of heterogeneous data with background knowledge described in ontologies induces re-usability and supports automatic processing of data. The establishment of “Corporate Smart Content” (CSC) - semantically enriched data with high information content with sufficient benefits in economic areas - is the main focus of this study. We describe three actual research areas in the field of CSC concerning scenarios and datasets applicable for corporate applications, algorithms and research. Aspect- oriented Ontology Development advances modular ontology development and partial reuse of existing ontological knowledge. Complex Entity Recognition enhances traditional entity recognition techniques to recognize clusters of related textual information about entities. Semantic Pattern Mining combines semantic web technologies with pattern learning to mine for complex models by attaching background knowledge. This study introduces the afore-mentioned topics by analyzing applicable scenarios with economic and industrial focus, as well as research emphasis. Furthermore, a collection of existing datasets for the given areas of interest is presented and evaluated. The target audience includes researchers and developers of CSC technologies - people interested in semantic web features, ontology development, automation, extracting and mining valuable information in corporate environments. The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive and broad overview over the three topics, give assistance for decision making in interesting scenarios and choosing practical datasets for evaluating custom problem statements. Detailed descriptions about attributes and metadata of the datasets should serve as starting point for individual ideas and approaches.
