The necessity of having intelligent methodology to access databases in networks has become more apparent in the age of distributed networks. Using semantics and ontologies can be highly helpful in developing such methodologies, as they provide the required classifications and mined information. The necessities that are required by the database administrator to build durable, reliable, and flexible data access methodology have been highly appreciated. This study that compares between the proposed system and conventional methods, for example Role Based Access Control (RBAC) and classical chain-based methods. The comparison is done using applications in the healthcare sector. This study is based on real surveys that have been conducted in an active hospital in the State of Kuwait.
