A method, computer program product and computer system for predicting that an event identified in an event topic map meta-model will have an effect on at least one asset identified in an asset topic map meta-model. In an exemplary embodiment, a computer receives a query input from a user. The computer obtains an input of an event from the query input. The computer identifies at least one asset mapped to the event in an asset to event topic map meta-model that maps assets in the asset topic map meta-model to events in the event topic map meta-model. In identifying the at least one asset, the computer determines that the at least one asset has greater than a threshold probability of being affected by the event.
