A representation in the standard-based format of a second domain comprising legacy data is generated from the legacy environment. A set of inference rules is applied against the representation of enterprise industry model instance data and the representation of legacy data. One or more candidate legacy assets in the representation of legacy data capable of implementing an aspect of the enterprise industry model are identified. The identified one or candidate legacy assets for implementing the aspect of the enterprise industry model are then recommended to a user.
