To overcome the challenges of EII (Enterprise Information integra- tion), we propose SGII which is the first system undertaking research at the in- tersection of semantic grid and P2P data integration, exploiting their strengths in a common framework, and expanding their applicability in the area of EII. We first discuss how the P2P and semantic grid technologies can drive current EII systems to a new decentralized, flexible, scalable system based on a short survey of the state of the art of EII and its current challenges. Then, through a discussion of the fundamental formal architecture in general and its components in particular, we depict the basic integration principles from both P2P and se- mantic grid perspectives. The key contributions of this paper are a P2P semantic grid service oriented framework for EII, which mainly consists of three seman- tic grid services (data peer, semantic peer and application peer services); basic integration principles, which is compatible with OGSA-DAI infrastructure and P2P data integration paradigm; and added value over the state of the art of EII.
