A key factor for success of companies operating in a globalized market environment is a modern SOA-based infrastructure. An essential component of a SOA infrastructure is the central service registry. Current standards for organizing service registries and their implementations are driven by the technical aspects of the
infrastructure. When using such technically organized service registries, business users often fail to find the needed information. With the concepts of Web 2.0 in
mind, we present a new approach to the organization and implementation of the business registries that are driven by the needs of business users. The paper discusses
the problems of the current technically driven approaches, presents an architecture for a business user-driven service registry and introduces an implementation of the architecture using UDDI and Semantic MediaWiki.
